It's All About Justin Lindine… Bike Profile and Column
On Cyclocross Magazine:
Justin “The Honey Badger” Lindine has been a staple of New England cyclocross for the past few years, stacking up wins like Providence last year, and a first place overall in the Verge Series in New England this season, as well as a seventh place at USGP Derby City Cup after a lengthy road trip. While at NBX this weekend, where he took home a fourth place on Saturday and a third place on Sunday, we snagged his bike to get a closer look. He’s riding a Redline Carbon Conquest team frame this season, and he’s been incredibly happy with the overall performance. In particular, he’s excited and feeling ready for the USGP in Bend this weekend and his trip to EuroCross Camp in just a couple of weeks, during which, he’ll provide us some missives from the front lines. Can’t get enough Honey Badger? Make sure you’re subscribed to Cyclocross Magazine, since he’ll be profiled in Issue 20!
“The new Redlines this year are really sweet,” he tells us. “There hasn’t been a huge change in the frame, which is great really because last years Conquest Teams fit me really well, and were pretty much all you could ask for in the stiffness and low weight department; but the little details are really nice. For instance, the full cable housing is something that I was really excited about. It’s really intuitive to set up, and I haven’t had to touch my cables since I set up the bikes. I am really hoping that that will pay dividends when the racing starts to get really messy here towards the end of the season, or when I’m in Europe where it seems like the races are muddy more often. Also, with the use of the press-fit BB they have managed to shave even more weight off of the bike which is pretty impressive. Depending on my wheelset choice, my bike can sometimes come in at under 17 lbs, which is pretty impressive for a cyclocross bike.”

On The Embrocation Cycling Journal: It’s All About the Journey
It really is all about the journey. (Or just Journey, if you’re referring to our 12 AM singalong to Don’t Stop Believing)
Most people know Justin Lindine as the quiet, sedate Honey Badger, who gives it everything when he’s on the course, wearing his heart on his sleeve. Some people know him from Jeremy Durrin’s live tweets of their drive to Kentucky last season, and those who know him from that know him as the excitable pop-song blaring bike racer who is just pumped about racing. So… will the real Justin Lindine please stand up?
