BikeCo Frame Prep
All frame, frame kit as well as complete purchases receive a thorough BikeCo Frame Prep. Riding a bike without appropriate bearing retention, torque and alignment is hard on components. As a result “loose” bikes not only make noise but will also wear prematurely. BikeCo’s expert mechanics go through each chassis ensuring that suspension, bearings, and hardware are setup for maximum performance as well as longevity. Many home builders have a full frame assembly completed by BikeCo mechanics to ensure the best setup, in brief headsets, bottom brackets, suspension, derailleur hangers, etc are gone through piece by piece.

Ripley AF NGX Build Details
The new Ripley AF NGX build features SRAM NX drivetrain with a GX derailleur and cassette. Using the GX cassette riders have the SRAM XD driver on their hubs allowing them to replace with the GX or upgrade to X01 or XX1 SRAM cassettes in the future.
A popular upgrade on the NGX build is to Magura MT5 or even MT7 brakes. These brakes offer improved modulation and power compared to the SRAM G2 2 piston offerings. Upgrading brakes is popular both at time of purchase as later in the bike’s service life.
