Get out and start learning new tricks on Redline's Recon. The sturdy steel frame and Monster fork with tapered legs excitedly keep pace with your progression until new tricks are dialed. Super-tough 3-piece chromoly cranks with 25/9 gearing help you power the durable 36-spoke wheels up to speed, and the Tektro brake scrubs any excess speed. Big bars give you lots of leverage, and ultra-low profile pedals help you stomp your landings like a pro.
I use the bmx bike really good. It is easy to jump and you get alot of air of that bike. The recon is really fast, it can outrun anything. I had this bike for about a year now. I was jumping on a jump and I turned to sharp and the sprocket bent. The Recon is ready for the races, jumps and everything that i must do to it. I only had the rear tire replaced.the brakes are sweet and so are the brake pads they are kind of a green color. The bike was the sweetest bike i had in my life. Thanks to the BMX stores to invent that Recon. Also the tires are really sticky and you don't even slid on anything except ice.
Bottom LineNo, I would not recommend this to a friend
I use it at the park and on asphalt mostly, havnt taken it out on dirt so i wouldnt know. Its indestructable, really cheap for its value and parts, and it looks sweet. On a down note, the small stock bars feel a little wierd, the front brakes kinda weak, and the 1-Piece crank might be a turnoff, (even though its really a great crank and takes some weight off)
Bottom LineYes, I would recommend this to a friend
