Offering one of the better components packages of the bunch, the Redline D600 29er also features some high-end trends, including a 2×9 drivetrain and color-matched rims, fork and grip hardware. Handling is predictable and stable, and the slightly longer chainstays give it a grounded feel. Up front, the 100mm RockShox Dart is one of the nicer fork options for this price range. WTB Prowler tires were a favorite among our testers. The cockpit (bar, stem and seatpost) is laid out nicely, although the stem could be a bit shorter for improved handling.
