Ibis Ripmo Frame Kit Custom Builder, 145mm travel DW Suspension, 29″ Wheel
Customize your Ibis HD4 Frame by picking the best rear shock, fork, headset, and dropper post for your specific needs.
The Ibis Ripmo frame has been long desired from enduro riders for sometime now. The Ripmo features 145mm of rear travel with 160mm of travel in the front. This combination offers a plenty capable bike that gives riders a balanced feel. With its steep seat tube angle of 76 degrees this bike pedals extremely efficiently and has a lively personality. In a world where we often hear “longer and slacker,” the Ibis Ripmo pushes the boundary by running a 44mm offset fork to manipulate the balance of performance between headtube angle and wheelbase. Ibis’ testing found the 65.9 degree headtube angle to performed like a slacker headtube, without the additional wheelbase penalty.
Due to these updates the Ibis Ripmo has an incredibly balanced on trail personality. Riders will notice the Ripmo’s efficiency – this bike accelerates quickly and holds speed well. Once at the top of the climb Ripmo riders will be blown away when they point the bike downhill. Effective front and rear balance produce a bike that’s comfortable to ride centered on the bike, easily controlling both ends of the bike in a variety of terrain. Rear shock options ensure maximum tuneability for your specific riding style. On one hand you have the DPX2, a shock which appeals to the trail oriented rider and on the other the X2 with the best damping controls on the market for aggressive Enduro rips.

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.

BikeCo’s Custom Frame Kit builder offers riders options on rear shock, fork, headset, and adjustable seatpost – in short the heart of your build.

Ibis Ripmo Frame Kit Custom Builder Options
Fox Performance DPX2: Sharing design influence from the more aggressive X2 the DPX2 is designed as the ultimate trail shock. Three modes – Open, Medium & Firm – give riders options to personalize performance across a variety of terrain. The DPX2 tune and feel is a notable improvement compared to the previous Float X. It also offers better heat capacity over single chamber shocks.
Fox Factory X2: Since its release the X2 has been the overachiever in the Fox rear shock lineup. The X2 features a climb switch as well as high and low speed tuning for both compression and rebound. This year’s X2 features improved linear damping, revised oil flow and redesigned seals for even better performance. Factory suspension features the proprietary Kashima coating for ultimate trail feel and longevity.
Pro Tune Fox Factory X2: With the benefits of the Factory X2 and revise the tune window for your specific size, ground speed, riding disposition, and chassis – what’s not to love?? Whether you’re a seasoned rider or completely new to the sport improved suspension performance means a better performing, and more fun, bike. Check out the Pro Tune tab for more details.
BikeCo works with the Fox lineup for many reasons – in particular, they work awesome and are incredibly reliable for our clients. Since the Ibis Ripmo runs a 160mm Enduro fork let’s define some of the options available in the Fox Float 36 lineup.
There are four levels of Fox forks available, excluding OEM variations.
Rhythm & Performance (Grip Damper)
Performance Elite (HSC/LSC or Fit 4 Damper)
Factory (HSC/LSC or Fit 4 damper)
In this kit we offer the Performance Elite and Factory options.
Performance Elite has the same dampers as the Factory offerings without the Kashima coating (Performance has black stanchions).
Factory forks have the familiar Kashima coating on the stanchions for maximum performance and longevity.
HSC/LSC (RC2) Dampers offer external controls for high and low speed compression to fine tune your fork’s performance. Combine these controls with air pressure, volume spacing and rebound to setup your bike for any trail condition. Riding bigger, more aggressive, faster trails? Undeniably, this is your ideal damper.
Fit 4 Dampers feature a 3 mode compression switch – Open, Medium , Firm – and adjustable compression control in the Open setting. Fit 4 forks feature a more “trail” feel than their RC2 cousins while offering a quick “lockout” for riders who desire the firmest offering to climb the steepest / longest trails.
Looking for even more performance from your suspension?
At this point it’s time to Pro Tune your Fox fork and rear shock for the most personalized setup available. Flip to the Pro Tune tab for more info and to fill out your bio for our suspension techs.

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.
