Redline took a big gamble this year and ventured into the titanium market; five frames (Jr. cruiser, Expert, junior, mini, micro mini) for the little kids that are each going to retail for between $900-$950. Rumor has it that the micro mini frame weighs in at under two pounds. Here are the geometries for each of the frames:

Junior cruiser: 20″ top tube, 11″ bottom bracket height, 16.10″ chainstays, 73-degree headtube angle, and a 70-degree seat tube angle. It weighs in at 2.70lbs.

Expert: 19.5″ top tube, 11.80″ bottom bracket height, 15.30″ chainstays, 73-degree headtube angle, and a 70-degree seat tube angle. It weighs in at 3.10lbs.

Junior 20″: 18.75″ top tube, 11.” bottom bracket height, 14.60″ chainstays, 73-degree headtube angle, and a 70-degree seat tube angle. It weighs in at 2.60lbs.

Mini: 17.40″ top tube, 10.90″ bottom bracket height, 13.75″ chainstays, 72-degree headtube angle, and a 72-degree seat tube angle. It weighs in at 2.20lbs.

Micro mini: 16.10″ top tube, 10.35″ bottom bracket height, 12.20″ chainstays, 71-degree headtube angle, and a 72-degree seat tube angle. It weighs in at 1.95lbs.

To go along with its titanium frames, Redline also made their own line of carbon fiber/aluminum forks (the blades are carbon fiber, the steerer tube is 6061 aluminum).

McGoo and the Snafu crew threw a little awards party of its own the night before our NORA Cup party for all the dealers/distributors who sell their products. Seattle Bike Supply (a.k.a. Redline) went home the winner and this is what they got, an ugly softball chick.
