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.

Yeti SB6 Frame Kit Custom Builder Options:

Rear Shock:

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.

Fork:

BikeCo works with the Fox lineup for many reasons – in particular, they work awesome and are incredibly reliable for our clients. Since the Yeti SB6 runs a 170mm 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.
Performance (Grip Damper)
Performance Elite (GRIP2 or Fit 4 Damper)
Factory (GRIP2 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.

Damper Details:

HSC/LSC & HSR/LSR (GRIP2) 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.

Headset:

The Cane Creek 40 is a popular headset balancing budget and performance.

You want to install a headset, once, and call it done. You’re looking for a bit of flare on your build. You want the best, American made, bearing around. In other words Chris King is for you. It’s really about that simple…

Seatpost:

This season the Fox Transfer post (Performance = black, Factory = Kashima coat) paired to the Wolf Tooth ReMote has been the absolute go-to setup. Great reliability, a variety of sizing options, incredible ergonomics in other words, it’s an easy choice.

*Yeti frames and completes are only available for in-store pickup.*

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.
