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.

get a bike with 2 wheels and the arm things that attach to where your feet go, I think you will enjoy one of those much.

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
