First look: Subrosa 26″ Malum

5 08 2014

The Subrosa 26″ Malum is a new addition to the Subrosa lineup for 2015.

It features a full chromoly frame (with an ovalized downtube) paired up with full chromoly forks and handlebars (7″ X 28″).

In terms of geometry, the frame sports the following specs:

  • 72 degree head tube
  • 73 degree seat tube
  • 22″ top tube
  • 16.65″ chain stay
  • 14.75″ standover height

You can find the rest of the specs here: 2015 Subrosa lineup.

Not too shabby but I’m not sure if I dig this as much as last year’s offering from Subrosa: the DTT TTWOFOUR frame and fork.

Word on the street the DTT TTWOFOUR is no more for 2015.

Which is a bit of a shame really because that frame was one of the more unique frames on the market last year.  If Subrosa decided to offer that as a well-spec’d complete…now that would be something!

Looks like a Volume Sledgehammer.

I am feeling the need to have them build a Gates Drive compatible 29er version of this.

I meant to post this on the Standard custom post. Freakin scotch.

I wonder how this compares to the Stolen Zeke. The Zeke doesn’t have sealed hubs but you could pick one up for around $400 when they were in stock.
