BAMF stands for exactly what you think it does. Bikes are too personal to let some pretty Lexus-induced paint job speak for who you are. If you ride a bike, really ride a bike, you know the cold burn on your face in the winter, the sound of hitting the ground and the tingle of a bloody knuckle. You don’t ride so you can put an ornament on your SUV or to get a frappuccino hoping to be seen…You hunt those types down on the trail and smirk as you rip past leaving them and their GPS and sunblock keychain wondering what happened?All the BAMF bikes are black (like the guys at BAMF are going to fight over color pallets) and come with minimal decal (sticker packs are not included). Bikes are a permanent fixture in their life and they pour that passion into their work. From the name alone, BAMF Grappler, you get the idea they are not going to hold back.The BAMF Grappler is a BAMF Bad Ass 6061 aluminum 29er with an edge. The new upgraded BAMF Grappler took a very popular bike and made it an ever better value: the new Grappler features the RockShox CX 28 fork, SRAM X.5 front & rear derailleur, SRAM X.5 Trigger shifters - and the home run Hydraulic Disc brakes from Tekro. The Closeout Model in the dropdown features RockShox Dart 3 fork, SRAM X-4 Trigger Shifters, SRAM X.4 rear derailleur and mechanical disc brakes. BAMF spent over a year getting the geometry just right. Some of those bandwagon types with the huge head tubes (up to 140mm???!!!) didn’t do their homework…they just rushed out a 29” wheeled bike hoping to get your wallet open. You could call them to let them know but they don’t have a customer service phone number…nice customer support! The big wheels have gained popularity and for a good reason. Riders are accepting the fact that big wheels roll over rough terrain better…and faster! Rolling on a 29er makes you wonder why they weren’t popular sooner. They flat out haul on the trail.
