So, after a long hiatus of riding bikes, I'm starting to ride again, at the moment I am running outdated/semi - broken parts on a sunday funday am frame, and as I ride street and tired of cassettes I have been looking into buying a complete bike with a freecoaster to start me off, the main one that I have been keeping my eye on is the Subrosa Letum (both 2018 and 2019 have the same specs so I'm only buying one or the other for their colourway) has anybody on here had any experience with this bike? It seems really great from what it has to offer but there are virtually no reviews of it, and barely any forum posts about anybody who has ridden one.

Looks good on paper, not really my cup of tea though.
If the funday is the aftermarket frame, I'd rather keep that and upgrade parts though

Looks pretty nice! I've been riding for about a year after a 12 year hiatus. I love these new modern bmx bikes and I think you will too.

I'm on a Subrosa Wild Child and I love it. I don't think you can go wrong with that and the blue on the 2018 looks sweet.

My buddy has one and he is still shredding it. He bent the bar but he's bent EVERY set of pairs he has had lol. But he's also a big dude so that's prolly why. You should be fine though..

I don't crash, I do random gravity checks...

sounds good, I'm not too big of a guy and I'm probably not gonna be doing any huge drops or anything so yeah should be fine by the sounds of it.

Throw some lifetime warranty Animal bars on her and she'll be good.

I considered the Letum too. It’s got a lot for the price. Full CrMo and sealed bearings throughout, double wall wheels, free coaster, female front axle, bash guard, etc... Ready to go with pegs and all! I’m really diggin that 2019 Grey colorway. Would probably upgrade the bars and cranks later on. But I’m a fat boy lol!

My bike was stolen so I bought a 2015 Subrosa Malum to hold me off till my next check. Pleasantly surprised. I enjoy this bike a lot and decided to keep it and just got taller bars for her. The only “issue” I’ve had is my spokes loosen up like 20% faster than I’m used to. But theyre also stock wheels on a 4yo midrange complete and they’ve held up to more abuse than I ever expected, so theres really no room for me to bitch lol!
