Bike check -- Brandon Dosch's Redline Device
Brandon Dosch bike check
X Games BMX Dirt 2013 silver medalist Brandon Dosch moved from the wintery Midwest to Orange County, Calif. several years ago, and during that time, Dosch competed throughout the world in dirt and park competitions. After wanderlust struck again, Dosch decided to give Austin, Texas a try as home base. But before he left, he met up with XGames.com for a quick look at his latest Redline setup.
Redline Device frame, 20.75" top tube
"I ride the Redline Device 20.75 frame. It's dialed and works well with all styles of riding. I ride it all and I love it," says Dosch.
"You may have recently seen me on a freecoaster, but I got over it," says Dosch. "I really enjoyed the coaster but it slowed my riding down too much. The pedal pressure is a bit more fun a not really for my style of riding. I'm currently riding the Profile Totem Hubs."
Fly Bikes Ruben pedals
"I love the metal Fly Ruben pedals. I've been stuck on them for years -- they have the best grip and I really enjoy the shape," says Dosch.
"The Redline Device Medium size seat suits me the best. It's just slim enough to be out of the way and just thick enough for a pinch," says Dosch.
"My front wheel is made up of a Cinema 777 rim laced to a Profile Totem hub. And as always, I ride my pegs on the left!"
"I'll ride ODI Longneck grips forever. I keep a flange on my brake lever side and cut the flange off my non-lever side. I run a small brake lever to avoid getting it caught with turndowns," says Dosch.
Dosch's drivetrain consists of Redline's G7 Device cranks, a Redline Device sprocket and Shadow Conspiracy Interlock chain.
"My super sweet all-around bike of goodness is treating me well. I'm blessed to have Redline Bicycles and Albe's bike shop always keeping my setups dialed," says Dosch.
"I tend to always ride a dirt tire in the front and street tire in the back. I try and ride tires that are light and durable," says Dosch.
That's a brand new front tire on the front wheel of Dosch's bike, with some sand from the beach for good measure.
"The front end is the part of my bike that I'm the most particular about," says Dosch. "Top load stems work best for me and the bars I run have a little over an 8.5-inch rise."
