Scopin’ the slick new Squareback

14 10 2018

Sure, the new Redline RL-275  we checked out last week is pretty cool…but, truth be told, the retro-fabulous cruiser that a lot of people were eagerly anticipating  was this one: the Redline SQB-26.

Clearly evoking the style cues from it’s earlier heyday, Redline brings the Squareback (of old) back to the future as a 26-incher with an aluminum frame, cro-mo forks and the classic double head tube gussets.

Rounding out the look, Redline busts out some vintage graphics, iconic v-bars and tanwall Vee Speedster tires for all the old school fools.

Of course, the classic Redline Flight Cranks are part of the package as well.

Did mention it sports Bear Trap-style pedals too?

Yep, nice touch there.

Geometry Breakdown:

  • Top Tube:  23″
  • Head Angle: 71˚
  • Seat Angle: 73˚
  • Bottom Bracket Height: 12″
  • Chain Stay: 17″
  • Stand Over: 27.75″

Color options are black and the oh-so-classic white (pictured above).

These are dropping next month so, if the SQB-26 tickles your fancy, hitting up your favorite Redline dealer now is probably a good idea.

Limited edition Redline Cup frames

14 03 2010

Well, here’s an awesome incentive to race the Redline Cup series this year:

The chance to win one of 70 one-of-a-kind limited edition frames from Redline!

According to Redline:

While it is up to each track operator’s discretion on how they will be given away, the custom black & gold Flight frames will likely be raffled off to one lucky winner during the RL Cup race – with proceeds being used to fund improvements for each BMX track.

The colors are inspired by both the 1966 Shelby Hertz Mustang Fastback and the Gold Cup series of the ’80s. They come in two sizes: Expert XL and Pro Cruiser (pictured).

In addition to the custom black and gold colors, you also get the 2010 Redline Cup logo clear-coated on each side of the top tube.

These cool frames are going to be collectors items, so good luck to everyone following the Redline Cup series. If you’re lucky/fast enough to score one you’ll definitely have one of the coolest looking rides at the track.
