redline pl-26 bmx side

With the OS retro BMX movement rapidly growing, the folks at Redline decided to enter the market with the “PL 26”!! The PL 26 is an bigger retro version of the Redline’s classic PL20 from the 80’s and it’s looking good!

The bike comes in a white colorway with the classic deacals on the down tube, seat tube, head tube and forks. The PL-26 also features the classic chromo dual pinch flight cranks and classic 80’s style sprocket. Fully sealed front and rear hubs, a
retro Kashimax Style seat and Tioga Power Block 26″ tires are some other nice features of the bike! The only thing missing on this bike to finish off it’s retro look is the gusset between the bottom of the head tube and downtube.

BIKE OF THE DAY: 2018 Truth Main Event Pro XXL, White

2018 Truth Main Event White

For today’s Bike Of The Day I posted my 2018 Truth BMX “Main Event” Pro XXL!! I wanted to wait until I finished my video review for it but the weather is making the production of the video take longer than expected.

For this build I did a white/black/ polished colorway and it came out amazing looking. The frame’s branding is all done in water transfer and it gives it such a great finish. The White wall Vee Speedsters really give the build that luxurious, exotic look. I can’t wait till the weather gets better so I can hit the trails and tracks with it.
