    BMX Cruiser Advice Needed

    After searching this forum and the web and not coming up with any answers, I thought I'd post a question to the members of the forum. I'd like to get a 24" cruiser and I've narrowed it down to a few, but I haven't actually seen these bikes and no one in my area seems to stock them. I'm thinking of:

    Redline Proline 24
    GT Power Series 24
    FMF Pro Cruiser
    MCS Magnum 24
    Felt Sector 24
    Free Agent Ambush 24
    Haro SR 24

    Not a very short list. Does anyone here have personal experience with these bikes? If so, I'd be interested to hear what you think. I'm generally interested in light weight, long TT (21.5" or more), good components and that the frame be well made, i.e., quality tubing, good welds, etc.

    The bike will be used for light trail riding and a little jumping, no racing. I know all of the above frames are aluminum. If it breaks, then I'll buy a high end CroMo frame and switch the components.

    Thanks in advance,

    Eric

    Oh, and before you post, I am aware that cruisers suck.

    Of all those I'd buy the Redline, because my steel John Purse was sweet and I wish I'd never sold it.

    Sorry!
