So following on from this mornings 2014 Redline post , I thought I would see which complete you guys would choose out of these 2, there are quite a few complete builds knocking around for 2014 and I will start by showing these.
The Chase Element and the Redline flight.
They are both stunning looking bikes overflowing with quality parts, but which would you choose???
The chase comes in 5 sizes and they all retail at $999…..and then the Redline flight comes in 4 sizes with the xl and xxl coming in at $1350….plus there are 2 carbon models but we won’t go there at the moment!!
With five sizes on the board (Expert, Pro, Pro XL, Pro XXL and Pro 24″), the Element covers most crankers who can get on a roller coaster without a parent or guardian.
The components group they put together for the Element includes plenty of choice cuts from the BRG stockyard (new Chase two-piece cranks, Chase Element stem, Elevn PUL 20mm chromo fork, Kingstar chain tensioners and Insight grips), as well as a heaping-helping of components from equally big-name household-name brands like Shimano (Diore LX brakes and lever), Tioga (Powerband and Powerblock tires), Sun Ringlé (Envy rims front/rear) and a KMC Z610HX chain.
The 2014 Redline Flight Pro XL. Redline specific formed R7 tubing, bell shaped seat tube, press fit BB -86, and integrated seat post clamp. New Redline convertible dropouts allow the use of 15mm through axle or standard 3/8. The new Pro XL is designed to lead. $1349 MSRP
With the 2014 season coming up , which one of these bikes would you prefer to ride , would the cheaper price of the Chase sway you , or would Redlines proven track record get your vote??
Let me know your thoughts.
