2021 Subrosa Salvador Review

The 2021 Subrosa Salvador is absolutely beautiful. It comes with a 20.5″ top tube with a little bit of chromoly. It is a beginner level bike that weighs 27.6 lbs. With the added aftermarket rant and Shadow parts, it will last longer than most bikes.

This is a longer chain stay. It gives you a more stable and controlled feel.

C: Head Tube Angle: 75°

Steep head tube angles make the bike “snappy” meaning more responsive to fast turns.

A less steep head tube gives you more control.

D: Seat Tube Angle: 71°

The seat tube angle can adjust how the top tube feels by making it more or less steep. Most are this angle, it doesn’t change very often.

E: Bottom Bracket Height: 11.6″

The bottom bracket height adjusts how low or high your feet are off the ground. Most completes will be this height.

F: Stand over height: 9″

This is a tall standover. 

While a tall stand over allows you to pinch more of the seat for bars and t-bogs.

2021 Subrosa Salvador Price

The Salvador is almost $50 under the $500 price point. In my opinion its pretty costly, but it does look really sick.

2021 Subrosa Salvador Quality

It is a high priced beginner bike with lower quality parts. These parts include single wall rims and a trimoly frame.

Buy if you are learning:

  • 180
  • 360 taps
  • pull up barspins
  • t-bogs
  • crank flips
  • turn down

Don’t buy if you are learning:

  • Big drops
  • 360 drops
  • 540
  • whips
  • flips

2021 Subrosa Salvador Conclusion

The Salvador is for a rider who wants a bike to ride park, dirt or street. This person should be a beginner rider with a small bag of tricks but wanting to take their riding to the next level. This bike is pretty expensive, but the raw looks dope, and that makes it worth the price.

My parents bought me my first BMX bike in 2011 and it changed my life. This bike has taken me all over the world and introduced me to cool places and cooler people. My goal is to help get 1,000,000 people into BMX so they can experience the joy and freedom that comes from a progression based sport.
