A 24 would have made more people excited about one.  Even a 6'3 240 pound guy could ride a 24.  I don't get the mtb 26" bmx style.  On a side note, those 26"s would be cooler with gears.

Once you reach 26' size wheels,it is not easy to make a bmx style bike anymore.

27.5 is an odd size to go with

Does not make any sense.Why doesn't Redline just jump right in and do a 20' RL20 retro.

My guess is they're just testing the market. Safer to make these larger frames that appeal to a broader market than a 20" RL-20II. But I'm with u. Only one that would interest me is that one cool

+1 that one and not a 26" of that one!

Exactly. And I hope GT puts out an S bend PFT in 20" as well.

I bought a 2017 redline pl26 early this year and it rides great and is a really fun bike but man the welds look pretty crappy

Besides the decals, nothing on those say retro to me.

BINGO!! Cash grab and hoping to follow the what's old is now new again trend. Honestly Redline, you must/can do better than this watered down Clown Bike roll

Re: New retro Redlines

Looks very "old man" to me, but perhaps that's the market they are going for that just want an easy riding bike with some throwback to the one they had back in the 70's.

I’d love a “Lineage” style update:

RL20II in both 20” and 24”.

The RED.  The YELLOW. The TEAL.

Re: New retro Redlines

Actually, 27.5 (650b) goes back to the very beginning of "mountain biking" in the 1970s. Some of the very first custom mountain bike specific frames were bike by Tom Ritchey and he based them on 27.5 wheels (650B).

But 650b was never the standard,26' was for a very long time.

....Price is all wrong.. a Custom frame made from Titanium wouldn't cost that... Maybe I'll Hit up Rick @ Standard to make me a RL 20II retro frame and fork.. still be cheaper than an 80's..

Re: New retro Redlines

I know it's not a popular bike here, butI just got one and threw some parts on it. It rides really nice for what it's worth.
