Subrosa debuts double top tube 26″

30 06 2018

Subrosa’s latest cruiser offering looks a bit like a mashup of some of their past cruiser hits.

The Subrosa Malum DTT 26″ brings together the coolness of the Subrosa DTT TTWOFOUR with Subrosa lineup mainstay, the 26″ Malum.

It features full Cro-mo frame, fork and handlebars (which are 4-piece…hey now!)

In terms of geo/specs, it doesn’t depart much from past Malum 26 models.

For reference, that works out to the following:

  • Head angle: 72 degrees
  • Seat angle: 73 degrees
  • Top tube: 22″
  • Chain stay: 16″
  • Stand over: 14.75″

Subrosa also rounded out their new 26er with aftermarket parts from Rant and The Shadow Conspiracy. (For more detail, click here.)

Color options are black or (pictured above) slime green.

These are dropping at Subrosa dealers right now, so if you’re in the market for a unique looking 26″ bike, this could be the ticket!

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!





Top ten of 2013

31 12 2013

As the sun goes down on 2013, let’s take a look at some of the most notable cruiser news items of the past year.

10. “Duffman man says…oh yeah!”…in one of the most surprising collaborations in recent memory, CULT teamed up with the Simpsons to put out the The Simpsons/CULT Duffman Cruiser.

9. The 22 inch wheel continued to show legs…S&M rolled out a 22” version of its popular ATF frame (in addition to a new 24” option) and FELT introduced a 22” entry-level complete.

8. Don’t call it a comeback…but then again maybe you should…We the People returned to the 24” scene with the trails-y Atlas 24. Subrosa also came back with the DTT TTWOFOUR frame. Liquid Bikes debuted a new american-made Feedback V2 frame.

7. The tanwall tire also made an impressive return…showing up on completes from We The People and Free Agent, in addition to an aftermarket tire from Stolen. Hopefully this trend will continue in 2014 with more aftermarket options.

6. BMX Plus put the spotlight on cruisers is a big way in their September issue.

5. Still alive at five. Cruiser Revolution hit the 5-year mark. So stoked to still be going strong after all these years!

4. Austin, Texas might just be the cruiser capital of North America. After visiting in the spring, I can confirm the rumors are true…Austin is definitely a place where cruiser is king.

3. Sunday continued to spread the word about new school 24s. Whether its Bobby Parker promoting #TwoFourTuesday, or Sunday featuring 24” riders in their FB feed, Sunday was reppin’.

2. Stolen Bikes’ strong showing at Interbike…with a solid lineup of completes, frames, aftermarket parts and the debut of a 26” model…Stolen showed everyone that they mean business when it comes to cruisers.

1. And just like in 2012, some of the best moments of 2013 were captured in video. Whether it was the “BMX vs. MX” Gundars Osis edit, Brandon Brown’s race edit, Peter Ulbrich bowl riding on a Big Ripper, or the technical wizardy of Joe Cicman and Danny Sarkin flatlanding on Sunday Wave-Cs…there were some great edits to get stoked on.

Happy New Year!





A little midweek action

2 10 2013

I need a good old-fashioned action shot to get me through the week.

Thankfully, Wayne Keller is always good for bringing the goods.

Found this picture over on Wayne’s blog, carrot bag, taken back in August.

Sunday also had their Model-C complete on display.

However, my photo of it is a little blurry so if you haven’t seen it, check it out here.

In terms of race stuff, there was some race cruiser stuff on display (in addition to the DK stuff previously covered) but not nearly as much as the freestyle-oriented stuff.  For a look at the race side of things at Interbike, check out BMX News and Vintage BMX.





Subrosa DTT dawn patrol

11 09 2013

Wayne Keller dropped us a line a few days back that simply said:

7:19 am Friday, dawn patrol…

I guess he figured the picture he attached would do all the talking.

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.

Subrosa DTT TTWOFOUR

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?
