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

Steep head tube angles make the bike “snappy” meaning more responsive to fast turns.
A less steep head tube gives you more control.

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.

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

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 Malum Conclusion
I really like the Malum. The Matte Raw color is sick. It is designed for a rider who is right at that mid-level and learning tricks like barspins, 360’s and even trying tailwhips. The Malum will hold up to these kinds of tricks and will help you progress to the high-level.
