The Redline would be a better bike out of the two. But they are both race bikes, are you aware of that?

Depending on how old he is, he may not be that short.

Don't get the expert...you're probably already too tall for it. Go with the Redline Proline Pro if you're going to get a bike in that series. I just got a Gt Powerseries Pro about 2 months ago and it is awesome. I've only raced twice eith it though.
