Checking off all the boxes

17 03 2017

When you’re putting together a Friday blog post, it’s important to check off all the boxes.

  • Is there a rad picture? Check.
  • Does it fit with the #flashbackfriday hashtag? Check. Wayne Keller getting rad (with an old school trick, no less) a couple years back.
  • Does it fit with a second hashtag (bonus points)? Check. The green bike qualifies this as a #stpatricksday post.

So much winning.





Friday video rewind

11 10 2013

The work week is almost over and it’s time to get in the right frame of mind for the weekend.

I think this Wayne Keller edit (from 2012) is just the ticket.

Chock full of rad riding and a super fun vibe.

What more could you ask for?

Have a good weekend everybody!





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.

(And for those playing along at home, Wayne’s piloting the new Subrosa DTT TTwo Four cruiser frame in this shot).





Subrosa DTT dawn patrol

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?





Wayne Keller works in his new ramp setup

Wayne Keller finds a fun line to test out his new ramp setup.

Subrosa DTT torture-testing continues

29 01 2013

Wayne Keller continues to put his Subrosa DTT prototype through its paces.  This past weekend he sent over this cool tabletop shot taken at his backyard ramp (photo credit: Ed Rusch).

Obviously, he knows I have a weakness for a good tabletop shot.

And, in the spirit of celebrating classic moves from begone eras, Wayne has also been spotted busting out a move that doesn’t get the respect it deserves…the infamous Grizz Air. Josh White would be proud.

Still no word yet on final specs of the DTT but rest assured once they’re released, we’ll have them here.





Something new from Subrosa

9 01 2013

So this is what Wayne Keller‘s been so coy about.

Looks like he’s been rolling on a pre-production double-top tube Subrosa 24″ frame and Villicus fork

Here’s a side-view pic of it in his shop:

And an advance look at some promotional material for it:
Subrosa-DTT-cruiser-double-top-tube-24-because-one-wasnt-enough
No word yet on geometry, specs or availability.
Subrosa has had some other 24s in their lineup in the past…like the Letum 24 and the Salvador.  The Salvador was a bit of a disappointment to many…given its high-ten frame construction (check out For real, too much steel for more on this).
Has Subrosa stepped up their game this time?  We’ll have to see.
What are thoughts on this new ride?




What’s Wayne Keller on these days?

7 01 2013

Wayne Keller dropped me a line this weekend to say he’s riding a new prototype frame that he’s pretty excited about.

The thing is, he’s being pretty coy about the details.

Here’s the first picture he sent me.

Wayne Keller prototype

Hmm, not a lot to go on there.

In the mean time over at BMXMuseum, a friend of Wayne’s was suggesting that it was going to have a Redline RL-20II-ish vibe.  This got my attention because the RL-20II was one my favorite frames back in the day.

Then a new spy photo of the frame’s top tube appears on Wayne’s blog . It certainly has top tube reminiscent of the RL-20II.

The plot thickens.

Wayne’s put out some great riding shots and video in the past, so I’m looking forward to seeing some pictures and video of him riding it.

The photo above is part of his backyard setup.

Fingers crossed we’ll see some action photos soon.





Wayne Keller killing it

9 07 2012

Straight out of Florida and the creative mind of Wayne Keller, we’ve got a brand new edit that Wayne describes as “random footage of same old stuff in a new year.”

I think you’ll agree that description doesn’t quite do it justice.  In fact, I can pretty much guarantee that you’ll have a smile on your face and ready to go ride after watching this.
