Redline revs up the retro with 2017 PL-26

19 08 2016

Back in early 2015, Redline caught our attention when they revealed that they had rebooted the iconic PL-24 as a 26-inch.

It was billed as a “modern take on the classic.”

And while it did have modern touches, like an integrated 1 1/8 headset and linear brakes to complement the old school graphics, Flight cranks and bear claw pedals…it never seemed quite “retro enough” (at least to us) in the black paint job they had selected for the reboot.

Thankfully for 2017, Redline has revved up the retro factor and decked it out in white…which is much more fitting color-wise and more reminiscent of the era that inspired it.


Check out the rest of the specs and deets here.

Their promo video sucks. Almost no it does promote stupidity.

It’s close, but I’m waiting for a RL-26. Or RL-26II.

An RL-24II with new school geometry (similar to the Asset 24) is what I’m hoping for!
