I am into dirt jumping but I live in Australia so 200-250 is useless to me but anyone Redline just brought out a limited realese on their Double X Dirt Jumper. It is the regular Double X but comes with 3-piece cranks.
I have a 2002 Specialized Vegas TR-X and what the amount of abuse I have put it through. It is one hell of a bike.

Isn't that a bit more than $250 American?
Good choice! :D

Yah but i got 50 more bucks and got it for 309.00 instead of 319.00 because the lady was nice at the shop.
I take it it's a good bike?

that is the same bike i have right now. I put My pold haro spryder pegs on them. This is my second haro bike. And now i have come to really hate haro. There bikes are all so heavy. I have olny had my x3 for half a year and i am trying to get rid of it. The parts are not that bad but i hate the frame.

dude i dont mean to be a dick or anything but i wouldnt trust any haro unless it was a pro model. Way back before i had a brain i was stupid enough to buy a shredder, and i bent the cranks to ****, completly demolished every aspect of the wheel set, and bent the steer tube on the fork. Also that so called "Strait Shooter" isnt so strait anymore. My friend had one on his haro and it bent like a banana
