Nice bikes! I particularly like your Kuwahara build. So clean!
Having recently started riding pump track & widening my bicycle addiction with a Framed 29er, I want to acquire a 26" bike. Was going to use a mountain bike frame as the base to build something up but since I wasn't allowed to ride/race BMX as a youth I want a new bike that I would have had BITD. Have narrowed my choices to 2 steel & 2 aluminum bikes. I am curious of your impression of your Redline PL-26 as it is one of the steel options I'm considering. What do you like or dislike about it? The other steel bike I'm considering is a Monza 26".
Redline has an aluminum 26" that I am considering in the SQB-26 if anyone has insight.
At the top of my list(I think) is another aluminum bike. The Race Inc. RA26-R is very attractive to me. I really like where these folks are going with their bikes & component partners with Toby Henderson at the helm.
If anyone can share their experience with any of these bikes it would be greatly appreciated. These 4 bikes fit what I am looking at since they were around in the beginning & had great desire to own one as a kid. They have the old school look with modern technology & not one of the hoards of SE variations.
Thanks for sharing folks! Lots of great info in this thread. As usual....
