Subrosa is a BMX company that makes some of the coolest shit and has an amazing team. It’s headed up by Ryan Sher and is a subsidiary company of the legendary Shadow Conspiracy brand.
Mike Lawrence distributes these brands in NZ and is tight with Ronnie from Shadow. Mike is going to be riding one of these new Subrosa Malum urban track bikes when they arrive in March. Finally a frame that is up to taking the punishment Mike will unleash on it.
Subrosa and Shadow are known for their great design, and meticulous attention to detail. Seriously – I believe these guys revolutionised the modern BMX industry and brought an ethos of creative design and marketing that didn’t exist before they launched. Professional as all hell, and with killer design integrity and quality. I have a stack of their stuff. So when they release this bike I think it will bring a breath of fresh air to the sometimes stale track bike community. Here is their blurb on the bike:
The Subrosa Malum Fixed Gear Bike will be offered in 3 sizes. 52 cm, 56 cm, and 58 cm. Features include a 100% 4130 chromoly frame, fork, and handlebars. Other features include Shadow Finger Banger grips, integrated headset, Shadow Interlock V2 Chain, 32H double walled alloy rims, 3/8 sealed alloy front track hub, 3/8 sealed alloy rear track hub, alloy cranks with sealed euro bb, 48-16 gearing, and Subrosa Pivotal seat and post. The frame will be a phosphate grey color.
