It's hyperlinked in my post. I'm not a Pro Member anymore so I can embed pics anymore. It's the SQB-26 - White.

Re: New retro Redlines

These bikes look great, but the stem feels out of place.  I know not everyone can be as cool as GT with the retro mallet stem, but I wish Redline would have came up with some kind of throwback retro stem for these two cruisers.


I keep buying and selling, so I guess I wasn't happy with the four I had left.

Re: New retro Redlines

With 3 pages of comments on the new 2019 Redline 26 Squareback and nobody mentions the most important and obvious difference from previous models...

- The 2017 and 2018 Redline 26 was full chromoly
- The 2019 Redline 26 Squareback is aluminum

Side note... 26" BMX cruisers have been around since the 1970's, there are lots of adults who want to ride a proper fitting 26" BMX bike in real world conditions and not a 20/24 that is too small for them, especially if they are 40 to 50 years old with physical limitations and or occupational consequences, not to mention the majority of buyers don't want to spend $3000 on a vintage 26 collectable, so there is a market for new 26ers if all the different manufacturers keep producing/selling them.

How about a RL-22?  A 22" version?

Re: New retro Redlines

Let's not entirely kid ourselves guys.  Over the weekend I saw a kid on a RL 275 fat bike.  He told me he was sponsored and even wagged his Redline glove in my face. 

It's all about getting in on the wheelie market.


ride your bike until it breaks.

I'm not seeing how a 24 could ever be "too small" for anyone, unless a guy is Shaq's size.  A 6'4, 300 dude could ride a 24 and not sure how a 26 "fits" better.

24s definitely feel small especially when you are just using it to cruise around on. The seat post on my cult duffman has to be raised a fair bit for it to feel comfortable for cruising purposes and it’s a 24” . 26” bikes are perfect for cruising.

I did; that was my bike.  It was stolen in 2015.  If Redline were to sell a retro-look version of the next Proline race bike I'd buy one, but I wouldn't go to the expense of buying a Proline, repainting, and swapping out a bunch of parts again.

yeah but like pwh said those aren't the bikes the wheelie kids are into.

I think Haro is going to be your only hope for decent 20" retros. They seem to be OK with making the limited runs...personally I don't think there's much money in it it for them, ( I could be wrong) but I hope they keep it going.

Right! but Redline is going after a piece of that pie.....it's a growing trend and it'd be stupid for them to sit on the sideline.

Re: New retro Redlines

Modern retro aluminum = cheap poorly designed mass produced Walmart bike .  Why didn't they make the squareback chromoly and nickel plated .Cause they like other so called retro brands now have people thinking by making bright colors and decals makes up for lack design . 
  If you want one hold off they will be on clearance soon for half price since nobody bought any tongue


I like studs ,brake studs that is .

Oh, I forgot people use the 26's for sit down cruising.  I guess, like you said, depends on the 24's geometry and standover height.  If it is a race 24 it might be even harder to cruise.... especially with really short cruiser bars.  24's are big enough for a bigger guy who feels too big for a 20 and doesn't want a mtb sized 26.
