The Bike Company offers riders everywhere the chance to enjoy world class level performance with custom spec’ed and tuned rear suspension.

Years of experience and countless single track miles allow our suspension tech’s to maximize the performance of your DW, VPP, Split Pivot, Four Bar, Etc, chassis.  Stock suspension is designed with a generic riding window –a typical rider (weight, height, experience) in typical terrain.  If your riding aspirations, physical size, or typical terrain are outside of the designer’s concept or their spec’d rear shock’s 2 to 3 factory available tune settings you aren’t maximizing your bike’s performance capacity.

“The tuned fork and new rear shock = wow… Really did not think suspension could feel that different or get *that* much better. The way my Tallboy LTc ate up the chunk was extremely impressive.  Inspired a whole new level of confidence. Wanted to thank Joe & Tracy. You guys are an awesome crew.  Alan

P.S. The bike also seemed to get a ton more traction in corners. Not sure if that is the suspension being amazing, or my mind playing tricks!” (see ABC of Performance to see why our suspension absolutely increases traction)


ABC of Mountain Bike Performance – Acceleration, Braking, and Cornering

The suppleness of BikeCo’s rear suspension allows your bike to maximize its mechanical grip without over stressing tire capacity.  This is achieved in a variety of ways that over compressed rear shocks simply cannot match.  When rear suspension is unable to maximize small bump compliance it leads to tire skip on the trail.  Our tuned suspension keeps your rear tire connected to the dirt equating to better accelerating, braking and cornering capacity.  The ABC performance is notable whether you’re new to MTB or an old pro.  As riding skill set progresses the supple suspension offers another distinct advantage.  Compliant low speed compression with BikeCo’s CustomMTB Suspension allows your bike to maximize Body English leverage changes.  As you rotate further over the rear axle the compliant suspension squats your bike producing a slacker head tube angle resulting in stable high speed performance.  This allows the advantages of slacker head tube performance in slick or groomed high speed sections without compromising performance in chunky rolling rock descents or low to medium speed riding from a permanently over slack headtube angle.  Pair BikeCo’s supple rear suspension with a Pro Tuned fork and the performance gain will blow you away.

Whether you are building a brand new bike or looking to maximizing your existing BikeCo’s CustomMTB Suspension is a must review to help you achieve maximum performance.  Why settle for stock when you can Demand More and have handbuilt custom suspension spec’d, built, and tuned for you, your bike and your riding.  BikeCo CustomMTB Suspension – helping you achieve maximum performance and maximum enjoyment on every ride.
