Lol at this. Check out this hilarious promo video for Subrosa’s Party Bars which are available now in both 8.5″ and 9″ versions.
Here’s a look at Simone Barraco’s signature Noster Bar from Subrosa. Available in March, these bars measure up at 8.75″ tall and 28″ wide with 10 degrees back, and 3 degrees up sweep. These bars were designed with maximum input from Simone who wanted a slightly narrower box section allowing you to cut them down without having to run your grips on the bends.
Spotted over on their Instagram page is a sneak peek of Subrosa‘s new Scott Ditchburn signature “Thunderbeast” Frame which will be available this year. Looks like they’ve toughend up the Ballum, and managed to cut the price down a wee bit too which is great news. Here is what Subrosa and Scott had to say…
Something wicked this way comes. The Subrosa Thunderbeast by @ditchburn420 will be available worldwide in April. More info soon. Get stoked!
So here she is! My new frame from @subrosabrand the THUNDERBEAST. Basically we wanted to tone down the price of my old BALUM frame abit an change a few of the angles an tubes I couldn’t be more happy with the end product an hope you all check it out if you’re looking for a new frame.
Hoang Tran’s signature Villicus Prime frame from Subrosa has had a few minor changes for 2014 and the V2 is what you see here. Check out whats going on with this imporved version and get ready to hit your local Subrosa dealer up to get one in for you as they will be hitting the shops in March.
“The longest running frame in the Subrosa line up just got better; again. Spec wise Hoang wanted more pop out of his bike, so we shortened the rear end to 13.5, 13.25 fully slammed. We also added our new custom Subrosa cast seat stay bridge so you can rock the Subrosa logo loud and proud! We added thicker chain stays to resist denting and increase strength, and removed some of the features that didn’t help with the function of the bike to reduce cost, making this the strongest most affordable Villicus to date. Available mid-March.”

Subrosa‘s Simone Barraco signature ‘Noster‘ frame is getting a few small revisions for 2014 courtesy of Simone who fancied a steeper 75.5 degree head angle, shorter dropouts to make them flush with smaller diametered pegs and the new lug-less stays allowing them to be a little wider for big tyres (or pringled wheels- your choice…) The ‘Noster II‘ will be available this coming April, get on to your local Subrosa dealer about ordering one of these lovely looking steeds when they come out.
Were liking this one… Subrosa‘s new “High Life” topload stem will be available in Spring 2014 in a bunch of colours including this rad looking Red fade.

We got a look at Subrosa’s upcoming Battle Fork a few months back at Interbike, and here we get a closer look at the beefy as hell invest cast dropouts and the packaging which looks awesome. I mean if there was an award for most original packaging in BMX, Subrosa would easily take the win.

We got a good look at Subrosa’s beefy new Magnum guard sprocket at Interbike last month, and as per the Subrosa way, this thing is being ridden to hell before it gets released. Here is a sneak peek of one being tested out, note how thick the guard is, you’re not going to be grinding through that any time soon! Expect these to be out some time next year.
Spotted here on Subrosa‘s Instagram is a sneak peek at Simone Barraco’s Noster V2 is a very agreeable matte raw. Simone’s first frame was a huge hit, with its sturdy build, and no thrills affordable design. His second signature model features a steeper 75.5 head tube and will be available 2014 in Black, Trans Gold and this Raw.
More Interbike sneak peek’s. Here is a cheeky shot of Simone Barraco’s second signature Frame from Subrosa. The Noster 2 will be on display at Interbike in a few weeks, and if this frame is half as good as his last one, this thing is going to be extremely popular…
Just when you thought Tire sidewall colours had been flogged to death, the guys at Subrosa have come out with a fresh new variation. What you see here is a sneak peek of their Grave Digger and Street Digger Tires which will soon be available in “Speedwall” edition, which I guess is a super short and slightly more subtle coloured sidewall. Personally I think these are a nice touch, especially if you want to ad a small accent of colour to your steed. Both tires will be available in either White or Red later on this Summer.
