We have shown you a few new builds for 2013 from Redline, the Conquest Disc and D680 Carbon, but today we have the 2013 Redline Conquest Team Carbon Frameset to share.

Air shipped from Taiwan, the 2013 Conquest Team Carbon frame set made it just in time for the Sea Otter Classic.

On to the sweet stuff, the Redline 2013 Conquest Team Carbon (and Pro) are the only models that are disc ready but come with canti-mounts for those that are not ready to convert. 130mm rear spacing for cyclists that want to utilize the Canti-mounts, but can change to disc down the road by simply changing the fork and rims.

Shaving off a little weight, Redline has done away with the BB30 and will now use a Press Fit 30. The Chainstay and Seatstay is now one unit, also reducing the weight. Overall, the 2013 Conquest…

Redline showcased many interesting rides for 2013 at this year’s Sea Otter Classic. Making its first appearance ever was the brand’s 2013 D680 carbon frame mountain bike.

The D680 will go through a few changes for 2013. The biggest difference between it and its predecessor will be a carbon frame, as apposed to the aluminum construction used on the 2012. Sporting a monocoque design, the 12142 rear, carbon frame sheds a bit of weight. A look at the new mountain bike’s BB92 system reveals a detachable, polycarbonate cover for easy brake cable access. When speaking components, the D680 carbon version will come dressed in SRAM XO, Ritchey Vantage tubes and 1 1/8 1 1/2 tapered fork to list a few.

Here’s where you’ll have to use your imagination: The Redline 2013 D680 images we are hosting is of an unfinished bike, without graphics. The finished product will feature a stealthy,…

Redline had a few treats in store for the 2012 Sea Otter Classic, one being their brand new 2013 Redline Conquest Disc cross bike.

The Redline 2013 Conquest Disc is your entry level cyclocross bike that comes with a 6061 aluminum frame, carbon fiber forks and of course disc brakes. What are some of the changes from last years model to 2013? The bottom bracket was taken down a bit and of course the addition of disc brakes.

If your not ready to jump on the disc brake wagon yet, don’t worry because Redline will still offer the Conquest without.

Coming equipped with a Tiagra 10 speed groupset plus fender and rack mounts for those thinking of converting to a city bike.

As of now, a specific retail price is unknown, but you can expect a price tag around $1600. Releasing around late July or mid August 2012.

For 2012, Redline has introduced a carbon frame for BMX called Flight for the first time. After thorough research and deliberation, Redline has chosen carbon fiber in order to achieve an excellent strength to weight ratio as well as an ultimately flexible design.

In specific areas of the Flight frame, Redline was able to either increase or decrease the amount of fibers through a carbon fiber manufacturing process. This process allowed for the optimum adjustments on the frame’s weight, ride quality, and stiffness.

With a Euro BB, integrated headtube, and enclosed 15mm dropouts, the 2012 Redline Flight Carbon Frame weighs 1.27 kg and 1.36kg for XL and XXL sizes respectively. This means that this frame is 25% lighter as compared to the Flight R6 alloy frame.

2008 Redline D640 Recall

2008 redline d640 recall   2008 Redline D640 Recall

A recall of the 2008 D640 bikes was issued by Redline Bicycles on December 9, 2010. Its parent company, Seattle Bike Supply, released a safety notice regarding the frames of the D640 2008 models. It’s suggested to immediately stop the use of the affected bicycles because cracking in the headtube welded joints can lead to separation of the headtube from the frame. On the frame’s top tube, you’ll find the model number. There are about 200 units sold from December 2007 to May 2010.

As such, this is hazardous since it can result in injury. So far, there have been eight reports of headtubes detaching from the frame with four incidents of reported minor injuries. To get a free frame replacement, contact your local Redline Bicycle dealer.

For more information, you can call (800)-283-2453 Monday to Friday from 9am to 5pm PST or visit www.redlinebicycles.com….

Not long ago we shared the 2011 Flight series from Redline, and now we share with you the 2011 Redline Proline series, a step down from the Flight models.

Just like the Flight series, the Redline 2011 Proline series features 9 bikes, which are the Proline Pro 24, Proline Pro XL, Proline Pro, Proline Expert XL, Proline Expert, Proline Junior, Proline Micro, Proline Mini, and the Proline Pitboss.

The line comes in all sizes, and for the most part similar materials and components. For example, the frames for the 2011 Proline series is made from 6061-T6 Aluminum, and the forks are Chromoly (some are butted).

Although the 2011 Proline is a step down from Redline’s Flight series, both feature some of the same components and geometry. With that said, the Proline is still a top tier bmx racing bike.
