Subrosa just dropped their guest colourway for the year. The majority of their product range is now available in Money Green. Head over to Subrosa to get a full rundown of what exactly will be available. Could be me being from England but it really looks more like a British Racing Green, but then again I am colourblind…
Second banging bike of the day, Shadow’s collab “Turn It To 11″ Bike with Subrosa is almost available. Shadow shot these photos of the assembled Bikes as they were being shipped from the Factory over to the US and out to stores.
These bikes are extremely limited with only 100 being produced, and they are built up to a whole bunch of aftermarket Shadow and Subrosa parts which aren’t actually available for purchase like the Whitewall Strada Tires, Copper Bars & Forks, and that awesome custom stitched leather Solus Seat. Head over to Shadow for a closer look at these beauties.
In other Subrosa news their Posi Trac Hubs and Guards are also now available. The Hubs both feature 14mm chromoly center axles with 3/8″ female bolts, with the cassette using a 4 pawl SDS reversible 9T Driver with individual leaf springs and polymer bushing, making it RHD/LHD switchable in a number of minutes. These are only available in 36h at the moment, and will come in a choice of Black or Polished.
Available separably are the Guards, which unlink most guards, are CNC Machined from 4140 heat treated chromoly for less grind resistance & superior durability. Guards are available for both the front and the rear, and simply slide on and replace the cone-nuts.
Pair up the Posi Trac Hubs, along with the 4140 Chromoly Guards and you have a bombproof set of Hubs that are ready to grind almost anything. Both are available now, hit up you’re local Subrosa dealer to grab yours.
Simone Barraco’s long awaited signature Noster Frame from Subrosa is finally out. Simone and the guys at Subrosa worked real hard on this Frame and their main focus was to make it affordable so more riders would be able to ride it, so what you get here is a straight up street Frame with everything you need, and nothing you don’t.
Just because its affordable doesn’t mean this thing is low quality, double gussets and straight gauge tubing make this thing super tough and ready for all the abuse you can through at it. The first ones will only be available in Maroon and Matt Black but other colorways will be available later in the year.

Last month we showed you a sneak peek of Hoang Tran’s third signature Frame from Subrosa, and today they dropped the full details and specs.

I spotted this at Interbike last year but didn’t know when it was going to hit production. Subrosa just confirmed that they will be bringing out a Flatland specific version of their DTT Frame which will be re-released this year in both a Street, Flatland and even a 24″ version. This flatland specific version features a 19″ top tube and a 13.25″ rear end. The 13.25″ set up leaves room to remove the chain, so if you really want to slam your rear wheel it can be set up at 13″. Combined with an 8.5″ stand over height and a 75 degree headtube angle this frame rides solid.
If your looking for a flatland frame with some retro throwback looks, this could be your bet. This frame should be out later this year. Be sure to head over to Subrosa to find out more and see what it looks like built up.
As spotted on Flatmatters!
Check out this rad new collab bike that Shadow and Subrosa are bringing out.

For the full rundown of the spec and more photos head over to Shadow.
This ultimate fantasy bike is a limited edition run so contact your local shop or favorite mail order. Available June, 2013.
I’ve certainly noticed a lot more riders have been choosing to rock alloy bar ends recently. Maybe it’s because no matter how cheap the plastic plugs you get free with most grips are, they will never be as durable as a good old fashioned alloy one. Subrosa have these sleek new Bitchin Bar Ends coming out soon. Simple, light and strong, these are sure to protect your bars and your stomach from taking in if you happen to crash. And to top it off these also look pretty classy! Out later this year in a bunch of colours, hit up Subrosa for more info.
Subrosa just leaked a sneak peek at their new Posi-Trac Hubs due out later this year. No words on the specs yet but when I spoke to Ron Bonner at Interbike he mentioned the cassette Hub will feature the SDS system, meaning that you can swap the hub from RHD to LHD with ease. Liking the nice contours on these, the team are testing them now, and they should be out later this year.
