Redline's Conquest is an absolute staple of the privateer 'cross scene. Its light, efficient 6061-aluminum frame and stiff carbon fork blast off the line and don't let up. The Conquest gets up to speed quickly, climbs effortlessly, and corners with precision thanks to Redline's dialed 'cross geometry and the zippy Alex wheels wrapped with Kenda's turn-taming Happy Medium tires. Quick shifts come courtesy of the Shimano Sora drivetrain with 'cross-ready gearing, while Tektro's disc brakes provide confident stops and premium control. What's more, the Conquest comes with XLC's aluminum componentry for even more speed out on course.

So far I've logged 300 miles on this bike. Other than the seat not being a good fit for me, there's nothing I don't like about the bike. It's light, responsive and an easy rider with it's 32mm happy medium tires. Shifts well, stops well and it begs to be ridden as fast as you can go.
I use this bike to ride gravel trails and asphalt. The bike is comfortable and quick. I was only able to ride it a few times before the cold weather set in. Shifting is not as smooth as Shimano 105's, but get's the job done. I am happy with my purchase overall.
This bike is one of the best out there for the price! I've never heard of Redline making cross bikes before but its well engineered and a solid bike surprisingly. I'd recommend this bike to those looking to get into racing. A lot of people say the components are bad and may not be top notch on racing quality, but what it really comes down to is your performance on the bike. It won't disappoint!
