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.
