8 Best Subrosa BMX Frames (In 2022)

subrosa bmx frames

With many requests coming from you guys, here’s our review of the best Subrosa BMX frames.

These dudes have something for EVERYONE.

Street, park and trail riders will all find the right frame for them. Subrosa even has an 18″ frame for the young guns but no flatland-exclusive frame.

Subrosa is making BIG moves since 2006. It’s a BMX company owned by Ron Bonner and Ryan Sher.

How it all began?

Actually, it’s PRETTY SIMPLE.

When drinking beers (by a pool), Ronnie asked Ryan: “What if we made everything on your bike?”

That’s it. Subrosa was born.

You can find many signature frames in the Subrosa collection – which is really RAD.

Enjoy!

Best Subrosa BMX Frames

Note: Frames are listed in no particular order. (The 1st one is not necessarily better than the 8th one – all are GREAT!)

1. Om

om joris subrosa bmx frame
Om is Joris Coulomb‘s signature frame that’s been around for many years. It’s a modern, street-oriented frame with excellent specs, coming in three sizes.

What I really like about the Om frame is the chainstay length. You can go super short (12.6″), or you can go relatively long for today’s standards (13.74″). Yup, something for everyone!

Note: Om is Subrosa’s shortest frame you can get your hands on. (Thus, they built it with the invest cast yoke bottom bracket.)

This frame is an absolute must if you’re Joris’s fan.

Om specs:

  • Top Tube Length – 20.5″, 20.75″, 21″
  • Head Tube – 75° / 125mm
  • Seat Tube Angle – 71°
  • ChainStay Length – 12.6″ – 13.74″
  • Standover – 9″
  • BB Height – 11.7″
  • Weight – 5.1 lbs / 20.5″
  • Price: $389.99 – $399.99 (may vary)

2. Simo

The Subrosa Simo frame is Simone Baraco’s signature frame from Subrosa. Moving on from Simone’s signature Noster frame after several iterations of it brings a new look as well as a few new features with the same familiar geometry.

Updates in the Simo frame include an investment cast seat stay bridge, a slimmer seat clamp area, and tapered seat stays.

The frame features a double-butted top and down tube with external gussets both top and bottom.

The frame also has removable seat stay brake mounts and guides for the brake riders out there but there are no gyro tab mounting holes present.

Simo specs:

  • Top Tube Length – 20.6″, 20.8″, 21.15″
  • Head Tube – 75° / 115mm
  • Seat Tube Angle – 71°
  • ChainStay Length – 13.5″

  • Price: $329.99 – $339.99 (may vary)

3. Griffin

Before parting ways with Subrosa, Mark Burnett had a signature frame called the Griffin Frame.

This frame is still available and features a technical geometry.

The frame has ovalized chain stays, a laser-cut seat stay bridge, and a bottom bracket shell that is CNC’d for its shape.

The Griffin is also a tech street frame that features a longer chainstay at the same time. At 13.3” it is quite a bit longer than other frames in this category.

Griffin specs:

  • Top Tube Length – 20.5″, 20.75″, 21″
  • Head Tube – 75° / 115mm
  • Seat Tube Angle – 71°
  • ChainStay Length – 13.3″
  • Standover – 9″

  • Weight – 4.9 lbs / 21″
  • Price: $349.99 – $359.99 (may vary)

4. Flight Park

The Subrosa Flight Park frame is the signature frame of Rim Nakamura, who has ridden for Subrosa since he was just 9 years old.

With the word park in the name of the frame as well as Rim’s style of riding, this one is clearly designed to be a modern BMX park frame.

The geometry of the frame fits right into this category with a 75° head tube angle, 12.9″ chainstay length, 8.25″ standover, and 11.6″ bottom bracket height.

The frame features an external gusset on the down tube as well as removable braking hardware.

Flight Park specs:

  • Top Tube Length – 20.25″, 20.5″, 20.75″, 21″
  • Head Tube – 75° / 115mm
  • Seat Tube Angle – 71°
  • ChainStay Length – 13.6″
  • Standover – 8.25″
  • BB Height – 11.6″
  • Weight – 4.5 lbs / 20.5″
  • Price: $362.99 (may vary)

5. MR2

subrosa mr2 frame
Matt Ray is an absolute savage of a BMX rider. For that, he has a well-earned spot on the Subrosa BMX team and a signature frame with them.

The MR2 frame from Subrosa is Matt’s signature frame. This frame has some very specific changes to the MR1 frame in order to help Matt ride the way he wants to.

From the MR1 to the MR2, the standover was raised, the bottom bracket was raised, and the dropout slots were made longer.

The chainstay length of 13.3″ -13.85″ might be longer than one would expect Matt Ray would ride and the bottom bracket height of 11.65″ may also be higher than expected.

Nevertheless, Matt Ray should have whatever Matt Ray needs to ride the way he does!

MR2 specs:

  • Top Tube Length – 20.5″, 20.75″, 21″, 21.2″
  • Head Tube – 75° / 120mm
  • Seat Tube Angle – 71°
  • ChainStay Length – 13.3″ – 13.85″
  • Standover – 9″
  • BB Height – 11.65″
  • Weight – 5.15 lbs / 20.5″
  • Price: $352.99 – $362.99 (may vary)

6. Rose

subrosa rose frame
The Subrosa Rose frame is meant to bridge the gap between an 18” and a 20” bike. This is something that isn’t as focused on in the BMX world so it is great to see that Subrosa made it happen.

This frame is offered in shorter top tube lengths that you wouldn’t typically see such as 20″ and 20.3″ but also offered all the way up to 21.2″.

The chainstay length is 12.5” – 13.6” giving a wide range of options for those who are growing into a full-sized 20” BMX frame!

Ultimately it is rad to see Subrosa offering a frame like this for those who need it in BMX and it is also affordable at the same time!

Rose specs:

  • Top Tube Length – 20″, 20.3″, 20.6″, 20.9″, 21.2″
  • Head Tube – 75° / 115mm
  • Seat Tube Angle – 71°
  • ChainStay Length – 12.5″ – 13.6″
  • Standover – 8.7″
  • BB Height – 11.5″
  • Weight – 4.9 lbs / 20.9″
  • Price: $290.99 – $300.99 (may vary)

7. Wild Child

subrosa wild child frame
It is no secret that Trey Jones loves Shadow and Subrosa. With his move from Cult to Subrosa, Trey now has the signature Wild Child frame from Subrosa.

Trey no doubt made this frame his own with features like the seat stay wishbone on the pierced top tube. The geometry of the Wild Child frame is very versatile and well-rounded just like Trey’s riding.

This frame is built to shred on all terrains from skateparks to the streets to dirt to trees and anything else Trey can put his tires on.

The frame has graphics inspired and featuring the late Jesco Jones. With that, this frame almost becomes a time capsule for a period in time. RIP Jesco Jones.

Wild Child specs:

  • Top Tube Length – 20.5″, 20.75″, 21″
  • Head Tube – 75° / 115mm
  • Seat Tube Angle – 71°
  • ChainStay Length – 13.5″
  • Standover – 9″
  • BB Height – 11.7″
  • Weight – 4.9 lbs / 20.5″
  • Price: $349.99 – $359.99 (may vary)

8. Yung Rose

subrosa yung rose frame
Subrosa’s Yung Rose frame is an 18” frame made for the young shredders of BMX.

With younger riders on the team like Kevin Robinson Jr, Antonio Marotta, and Jake Rutkowits, it only makes sense for Subrosa to offer a frame that fits them.

The frame is full chromoly with double-butted tubing and has a geometry that is suited to real BMX riding.

Removable brake mounts are built into the frame with holes for gyro tabs, making this frame a full-featured BMX frame with geometry suited for younger riders!

  • Top Tube Length – 18.5″
  • Head Tube – 75° / 115mm
  • Seat Tube Angle – 71°
