Deep into the Redline

More bling for the BMX... Back in the day (or BITD as it's known in oldschool circles don'tcha' know) Redline Flight Cranks were the epitome, the crank des nos jours, the most sought after crank you could have. What better than to mate them to a NOS 43 tooth Redline chainwheel.





The sealed bottom end bearings and their caps and washers various are beautifully machined, they have a precision and finish like a microscope or a very expensive camera lens, no wonder they were so expensive BITD (the price is pretty bloody salty still today). The twin-pinch cranks have a chrome finish so deep you could drown in it and have a weighty heft to them that you feel could be well employed to stun an intruder. Unlike the aluminium chainwheel which feels like it would float away if it wasn't tied down.

cheers ears, the video is much more likely to feature me pulling a muscle or two - I'm still aching from an off two weeks ago...
