Subrosa bash guard frame prototype

I'm not sure how many people caught this, but it's pretty cool.

"Sample "Bash Bike" frame. Never went into production, but there's samples. "

Re: Subrosa bash guard frame prototype

Out of all the frames Subrosa has made throughout the years,this one is the coolest,yet they chose not to put it into production.

It looks like a modern day Bully.

Would you trust a lazy drunk to weld up a frame that will be ridden hard?

Re: Subrosa bash guard frame prototype

They're supposed to be doing more of the DTT frames and I'm seriously thinking about buying one this round.

They are definitely one of the few unique brands these days.  Willing to make more than a straight diamond frame.

"Subrosa DTT, Party Splatter, Spring 2013."

Re: Subrosa bash guard frame prototype

Twin top tube
Bash guard
Party splatter paint
And we have something made in Taiwan I wouldn't mind owning.

Hell, why stop there? Wrap the head tube like an RL20II and give it a loop tail and you've got a frame from 3 pieces of tubing wink

I think I'll stick to the normal DTT, but that Bully-ish frame is pretty attractive.  I just don't have a use for the bash guard.

Re: Subrosa bash guard frame prototype

Someone remind me, what does the yellow splatter look like?  Was it a Haro?

I just keep thinking that frame with black forks and kneesaver type bars would look really sweet.

Re: Subrosa bash guard frame prototype

I would live one of those samples! We can only hope Vintage Bully will remake the Bashguard frame. They have been looking into it! I like the Subrosa DTT and plan to build one when the black frames come out.
Love DTT and bashguard frames!!!! big_smile

I've got a green and chrome 20.5" on the way wink

I think it should be here Monday.

They are on sale for $279.95 and if you want a chrome or half chrome + color it's $50 extra.

The web store is a little messed up, it tries to charge $399.95 + $50.  I had to call to get the deal.

Re: Subrosa bash guard frame prototype

Bully is still in business? Why would they sue? It's not like they were the only company to ever offer a frame with a bashguard? That's like when Hutch was going to sue other looptail makers...


If it's got two wheels, jump it.

That surprised me too, I haven't heard of them until this.

The paint and graphics are pretty close though.  It looks like a straight up modernization, but seriously, who cares?  Is it patented or trademarked or something?
