BAMF stands for exactly what you think it does. BAMF bikes are the brass pole in the club where the real action happens! 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 the hell 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. The Kimura is the top of the line aluminum offering from BAMF. The BAMF Kimura is a double butted BAMF Bad Ass 6061 aluminum 29er ready to hit it and get it! From the RockShox Reba RL fork to the SRAM 3x10 components BAMF has this bike dialed. 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. The Kimura starts with a superlight and responsive BAMF Bad Ass 6061 double butted aluminum racing frame. The RockShox Reba RL suspension fork with Motion Control damping and lockout has a tall (29er humor) reputation for performance. The SRAM X.9 trigger shifters are paired with the SRAM X.9 rear derailleur and SRAM X.
