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.

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

2021 Subrosa Tiro Price

The Trio is a low priced bike. Coming in at $379.99 it is priced very similar to the Kink Curb. I like that the bike is so cheap because it will help more people get into the sport.

2021 Subrosa Tiro Quality

A beginner level bike will have beginner level quality. This includes single wall rims, low quality hi-tensile steel, loose ball bearings and more.

However, this isn’t always a bad thing. If you are a brand new rider, you will want to be able to get a new bmx bike for relatively cheap. By making the bike out of lower quality parts, it becomes really affordable.

Buy if you are learning:

  • 180
  • 360 tap
  • fakie
  • smith
  • feeble
  • x up/x up ride

Don’t buy if you are learning:

  • High airs
  • tight carves in bowls
  • big drops down stairs
  • tail whip
  • flips
  • big 360
  • handrail grinds

2021 Subrosa Tiro Conclusion

The Tiro is a really popular bike this year. It is designed good for a brand new rider who wants to learn beginner tricks, even if you have never ridden a bmx bike before.. The trio will work. However, if you are riding at a mid-level, get a stronger bike.
