2017 Subrosa PiRL-20II

It's 1985 all over again, As I'm reading through my favorite BMX magazine I find myself staring at the yellow Redline RL Osborn is doing a Nourie Stand on.  I always wanted that bike and after owning a handful of 85 - 88 RL-20II's as an adult, I still never had the yellow 85.  What to do?  How about build a brand new one?  Taking it a step further, how about a tribute to the RAD bike?  Well here it is and I'm stoked to have finally made this happen.  It also rides like a proper new school bike should.  I hope you like it as much as I do!

This is awesome, I dig all the customization you did with this bike and it's probably my favorite newschool build.

Re: 2017 Subrosa PiRL-20II

I never once noticed that this was actually a trillicus first! yikes That is just a truly forward thinking idea where todays products are better and have the benefit of generations of rider influenced design, and strength. I'd only started looking for a trillicus. Then found this. WOW man. big_smile (FWIW; thats why I did the Barcode pink. I wanted the World Tour or just Pro Performer in that pink. So I respect this 110%)

Thanks Scott!  It's not for everyone but I'm glad to see it getting some love.  I do need to mix this up a bit too, it was fun doing the RAD tribute build but I'd like to take it up a notch and make it more rider friendly.  The plate and seat are likely the first things to get put on the shelf and see where that leads.  It's a fun ride though and was a blast to put together.
