Subrosa & Nuclear Blast team up

22 10 2017

Subrosa is no stranger to the collab game…last year’s Subrosa/Slayer collaboration cruiser being case in point.

More recently, Subrosa has dived back into the collab scene with two new collab models with Nuclear Blast: the “Blast Beast 26” complete bike and the “Blast Beast DTT” double top tube frame.

However, this is going to be an extremely limited run for both collab options.

Just 30 of the Blast Beast 26″ complete bikes and 30 of the Blast Beast DTT frames will be made available.

And not only that, the Blast Beast 26 complete will also come with:

  • a custom limited edition Subrosa/Nuclear Blast/Flite/Vans Number Plate
  • a limited edition Subrosa/Nuclear Blast/Flite/Vans Pad Set
  • an exclusive Nuclear Blast Enamle Pin

That’s a pretty sweet package.

But I think I’m more excited about the “Blast Beast 24” double top tube frame.

I’ve always dug the short-lived Subrosa DTT TTWOFOUR frame.

This looks like it may share some of the same attributes of that frame (unfortunately, no confirmation on specs/geo from Subrosa ).

If it is an updated version of that frame…whoa, would this really be a rare gem.

Anybody got an in at Subrosa to confirm the geo?


Turns out the specs are pretty much spot on to the short-lived Subrosa DTT TTWOFOUR frame! Yowza! Check out the comments for the spec list.

From the Nuclear Blast website:

Short and responsive rear triangle, roomy 22″ top tube and aggressive 75° head tube and 71° seat tube combine to make this one hell of a sweet ride for any rider.
Get it while you can. This is very limited and numbered frame. Once they’re gone, they’re gone.
