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.

 

From Ibis’ site:

The Ripmo AF (Aluminum Frame) brings the award-winning performance of the carbon Ripmo to a wider, rowdier audience. It’s everything we love from the carbon Ripmo, plus a few tweaks. Best of all, complete bikes start at only $3,000.

 

IT’S MET­AL

Over our long tenure from moun­tain biking’s awk­ward ado­les­cence to its cur­rent any­thing-shred­dy era, we’ve exper­i­ment­ed with steel, alu­minum and tita­ni­um — remem­ber the Bow-Ti, the first super­bike? We remem­ber the met­al times too, and it feels good to offer a pre­mi­um ride expe­ri­ence to our broad­en­ing fam­i­ly of rid­ers, cour­tesy of durable, afford­able alu­minum alloy.

 

MOD­ERN GEOMETRY

With a steep, 76-degree seat tube angle and a rangy but not stratos­pher­ic reach, the Rip­mo AF places rid­ers cen­tral­ly and upright over the bot­tom brack­et. It makes for an effi­cient posi­tion that can go the long haul with­out plac­ing too much weight on its slack, 64.9-degree head­tube angle. A 44mm reduced-off­set fork is more surefooted on steep descents and steadies high speeds. Better up, better down.

 

2.6” Tire Clearance

With a platform as versatile as the Ripmo, you should be able to run whatever tires you want. We pioneered the wide rim revolution and we’re partial to the new crop of 2.6” tires. When paired with our 35mm internal width rims, these high volume monsters can be run at eerily low pressures, delivering mo’ traction without getting squirrly.

 

COIL COMPATIBLE

The Rip­mo AF is compatible with both coil and air shocks due to a more pro­gres­sive lever­age rate. It allows for coil’s lin­ear­i­ty to thrive and we spec air shocks with tunes that pro­vide pop with­out feel­ing too harsh. On the trail, it gives the sus­pen­sion a sup­ple feel throughout the entirety of the stroke, enhancing traction no mat­ter how deep you dig.

DVO

Now that we made the frames lever­age rate pro­gres­sive enough for a coil we had to find a coil shock that could han­dle the increased stress of being dri­ven off of a cle­vis. The DVO JadeX is up to the chal­lenge so the Rip­mo AF comes with cus­tom tuned DVO suspension.

PICK YOUR SIZE

We use words like small, medi­um, and large to describe our siz­ing because it’s easy to under­stand, but our ultra low stan­dovers give you the abil­i­ty to size your frame based on reach and preference.

Maximize your suspension’s performance with BikeCo Pro Tunes

BikeCo offers proprietary Pro Tune services on the majority of Fox forks and rear shocks.

Fox Suspension is the pinnacle of performance, reliability, and longevity in our industry. Stock Fox suspension comes out of the box with a fairly aggressive tune – which is terrific for powerful, strong, aggressive riders with high ground speeds. Sounds like their World Cup DH and Enduro riders, right?

Pro Tune services calibrate the incredible performance of Fox suspension into a narrower band personalized to your riding specifics.

Utilizing a combination of proprietary lube oils, improved upper to lower fork fit, shim stack configuration, updated oil flow, unmatched bleed quality, and a few other trade secrets BikeCo Pro Tunes improve tracking, small bump compliance, minimize brake dive, run cooler (equating to more predictable performance from top to bottom of your descent), operates comfortably in a wide range of temperature (we test from freezing to 100 degrees), improves oil circulation, extends service intervals and more.

The most important advantage of Pro Tune suspension? Whether you are new to the sport or an experienced pro: suspension that works will let you ride more confidently. You will ride faster and have more fun with BikeCo Pro Tune Suspension.

To ensure that your suspension is dialed in our staff will review your riding experience, aspirations, ground speeds, size (height and weight) as well as specific chassis. BikeCo stands behind our Pro Tune service with a 30 day retune service if you feel that your particular riding requires a shift in tuning. BikeCo also offers discounted disposition retunes as your skillset progress if required.

After the Pro Tune your suspension only requires standard levels of maintenance in the future. To maintain the best performance BikeCo recommends sending the suspension in (we use proprietary lube oils, have specific bleed techniques, etc) although standard Fox oils can be used. Standard lubes will compromise some of the finite tune but with the other Pro Tune modifications a standard lube shock will still out perform stock.
