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.

Ripmo AF SLX Build Details
The Ripmo AF SLX complete build provides crisp Shimano shifting and powerful SLX 4 piston brakes. The SLX build is lighter and tends to have a slightly longer service interval compared to the Deore builds.
The most popular upgrades on the Ripmo AF SLX build at time of purchase include Fork, Rear Shock, Brakes and Handlebar. Ibis’ suspension upgrades allow riders to add higher end suspension to their bike at factory pricing. For instance, $290 purchases you the FOX Factory 36 fork. Upgrading down the line this would be around $1,100 for the fork and you’d either have an extra fork or have to sell the previous. When you factor how long you’ll have this bike it makes a lot of sense to take advantage of upgrades at time of purchase.
Working with BikeCo means you’ll have access to our expert staff before, during, and most importantly after the sale.
Before purchase we’ll work with you to define how you fit and ride the bike to ensure the best component viability. We then produce unmatched builds and setups. Years of racing at the highest level as well as having a retail location mean whether you’re a novice rider or an expert shredder we can set you up. BikeCo’s after sales service is unmatched in the industry. Our team will follow up to help you further refine your suspension, cockpit and tire pressures. Our goal is to take your bike from “man this is good” to “THIS IS DIALED.”
