Details

Get down and dirty aboard Redline's bar-raising cross machine, the Conquest Expert. The stiff, light carbon frame with its thru-axle fork flatten climbs, carve corners, and handle like a dream in muddy and dry conditions alike. Other details like a PressFit 30 bottom bracket, tapered head tube, internal cable routing, and short chainstays make the Conquest perfect for the quick accelerations of cyclocross. This sandpit-scorning machine also boasts 'cross-specific Alex wheels with grippy Schwalbe tires and a quick-shifting SRAM Apex drivetrain. And because this is a true cyclocross bike, the Expert has great mud clearance, powerful, dual-piston TRP Spyre disc brakes, and a host of quality XLC components.

    Comments:

    I bought this bike because the road surface quality locally has taken a major step backwards. More and more roads are being redone using Chip & Seal finish. I did not want to ride my existing bikes on this type of road. The upside of this is that I have discovered a whole new world of riding, with off road trails and paths. The Redline Conquest Expert is a beautifully constructed bike and the attention to detail & quality finish is second to none. The frame is lightweight but built like a tank with massive front fork legs and the largest chainstays I have seen. I have never used Sram products before but even though these are the entry level APEX group the quality surprised me. The levers work well with a very easy smooth feel. The shift is easy on the rear derailleur but a little stiffer on the front. I would put the group on a level with the latest 105 from Shimano with the feel of the front mech being more like the previous 105. This is my first time on Disc brakes and these work well. Glad they are the dual caliper type. Wheels seem fine Weight comes in at 21.2 lbs inc bottle cages and pedals. I would highly recommend this bike.

    This is my first road bike since earlier years and glad I choose this model for overall performance. Well worth the cost difference from lower cost ones This bike gets noticed for its geometry and finish. The configuration of the front wheel axle allows for easy removal and putting on
