Welcome to my product review of Redline Bikes Freestyle Series.  Let me be clear from the start that I am not a competitive bike rider.  I am far from fearless and I am not particularly coordinated.  I have fallen…often.  Maybe I should be reviewing stationary bikes.  Anyway, I have always liked to ride a (moving) bike for the exercise and the fun.   So, here goes. 

By now, you should all know about the many health benefits of chocolate, especially dark chocolate.  If not, then check out my post, What You Need To Know About The Health Benefits of Dark Chocolate for Men, Especially Husbands.

Total fitness is promoted in a variety of different ways.  One important factor is exercise.  And exercise doesn’t have to mean drudgery.  Exercise can be fun.  And these BMX bikes are fun! 

TIP:  To make you exercise even more fun, try eating a little dark chocolate before you begin your exercise routine or your bike ride.  Shop our store for organic chocolates and coffees with FREE SHIPPING for Amazon Prime members.  

A Little History About BMX

BMX is an abbreviation for bicycle (or bike) motocross.  This is an on- and off-road sport begun in the early 1970s when children began racing their bicycles on dirt tracks in California.  Many of you may remember the popularity of the wheelie bike, especially the Schwinn Sting-Ray.  I always wanted a Sting-Ray. But sadly, I never owned one.  That’s another story for another time.

Anyway, it turns out that these wheelie bike were ideal for the motocross sport, and by the mid 1970s bike motosport was the craze, and manufacturers began building bikes designed just for this sport. [1]

Today, BMX refers to all types of race bikes, whether used for the dirt, park, street, or flatland.  Today’s BMX frames are made of steel, aluminum, carbon, or a combination or these materials.  The less expensive, entry-level bikes are usually made of steel; the more expensive, high-end bikes are usually made of chromoly (sometimes referred to as aircraft tubing) or high tensile (Hi-Ten) steel.  High-performance BMX bikes use lightweight 4130 chromoly, or generation 3 chromoly.  While high tensile steel is usually considered a stronger material, the lightweight chromoly is most often used in competition.

Another characteristic of today’s BMX bicycle is the use of a a cassette hub with is smaller size, lighter weight, and more reliable operation. [2] 

TIP:  Look for sealed hubs when purchasing a BMX bike. 

My Opinion

The Redline Freestyle series offers BMX bikes for all riders from entry level to advanced.  These bikes are well suited for on- and off-road riding.  Most feature a Cassette hub and Micro gearing, Big-box bars, Monster padded saddle, and high tensile (Hi-Ten) steel frames.  Some offer Chromoly steel frames, sealed hubs, and more advanced gearing.  In my opinion, these bikes are well equipped for the price, and there seems to be something for everyone.

Also, Amazon Prime members get FREE SHIPPING on these BMX bicycles.
