Grump Double Barrel Cruiser: 2X the fun?

25 10 2016

Maybe I’m showing my age…’cause right after coming across pictures of Grump Racing Cycles new Double Barrel Cruiser on the weekend…I immediately started humming that old “Double your pleasure” Doublemint Gum jingle.

Which is a little sad really, considering how cool this bike is…and how lame those commercials were.

Seriously, when is the last time you’ve seen a double-top tube race cruiser?

grump-double-top-tubeNo word yet on specs or pricing (Grump is based out of Australia so keep that in mind)…but based on these pictures, I have feeling there’s gonna be a lot of folks interested in these.

grump-seat-stayIt’s gonna turn a lot of heads at the race track, that’s for sure!

The deets on the Subrosa DTT TTWOFOUR

5 06 2013

By Ed Vandermolen

At long last, the frame that we first learned about from Wayne Keller ,way back in January,  looks to be a reality.

Up until now we had to make do with spy photos and a couple of action shots of Wayne torture testing the frame.

But Subrosa has now decided to let the cat out of the bag and posted pictures and specs on their website of the DTT TTWOFOUR.

And while it may have an old school-looking double top tube, it definitely sports modern freestyle geometry.

We’re talking a steep head tube, short rear triangle, long top tube and a high bottom bracket.

Here are the highlights:

  • Top Tube: 22″
  • Chain Stay: 14.75″ (14.5″ fully slammed)
  • Head Tube: 75º, CNC machined, drilled for gyro tabs
  • Seat Tube: 71º, internally butted
  • Standover height: 10.5.”
  • BB Height: 13.25″
  • Dropouts: 4mm thick for 14mm axle
  • Low profile, removable brake mounts
  • Integrated seat clamp w/ replaceable nut and bolt
  • Material: 4130 Sanko chromoly, double butted down tube, straight-gauge tapered top tubes and chain stays
  • Weight: 5.6 lbs.
  • Color: black

Subrosa is definitely making a statement with this frame.

No word yet on pricing but if the specs are any indication, I think this frame will be getting a lot of attention.

What do you think?
