The Redline PL 26 is a new take on a classic BMX cruiser bike. Built to really be ridden, this bike features updated the geometry along with retro styling. A full chromoly steel Redline frame and fork are lightweight, but strong. Double wall rims with aluminum hubs give you a wheelset that can be ridden all day. The Redline PL 26 comes with a flip-flop hub in case you want to put a smaller rear cog on the bike. Hop on the PL 26 and explore the city, cruise the neighborhood, or hit the track for a few laps.
The PL 26 is a BMX cruiser. It’s large enough for mainstream uses such as commuting or off-road trails but it’s also got an edge to it that means it’ll do just fine on a BMX track. It’s got a vintage look and feel to it and a very distinguishable BMX handlebar setup. The PL 26 is fine for adults of all sizes. Often BMX bikes can cause tall riders to feel confined or too big for the bike. However Redline have provided a bike that doesn’t have that issue.
Although it’s not the lightest bike we’ve ever reviewed it’s surprisingly lightweight for such a large bike. The bike rides really well offering a smooth and agile experience. It has to to said that this bike’s build quality is strong and sturdy. The components used are definitely good enough for most non-pro riders and the paintwork is truly stunning.
This bike is easy to setup and we wholeheartedly recommend it if you’re looking for a BMX bike and have the budget to cover. Check it out.
