Hi all -

Buying my daughter a bike for her bday and it's come down to a DK Sprinter Expert or Redline MX Expert. Anyone have a serious case of love/hate for either brand (I'm partial to DK for their people and story, but...) - and would anyone interested in looking at the build specs (via links below) have input about quality/tradeoffs/geo/whatever between these two?

You're all deeper into this than I am and ... respect.

Thanks,
Maka

i would go for the redline the DK has an alloy frame where as the redline has 6061 Aluminum.

im sure still to this day youll see plenty of kids racing redlines at the track.

Sounds like I'll hit that $400 complete build price no problem... I do like the "girls geo" marketing for 8-12yos though - because at that age girls are built so differently than boys...

Girl are 100% built differently at any age. I wish more companies would do this. Atleast there's one
