BAMF stands for exactly what you think it does. BAMF doesn’t roll like those pretty boys with matching lycra kits and expensive power meters. If you ride a bike, and we mean really ride a bike, you know the cold burn on your face in the dead of winter, the sound of a body hitting the ground and the taste of a warm beer in the morning. You don’t ride so you can shave your legs and drive around town with a bike on the rack hoping to be seen…You hunt those types down 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 Piledriver is a serious bike as you can tell from the name. It will turn your world upside-down.
The BAMF Piledriver is a steel 700c fat tire fixie ready to kill it! From the single disc brake to the fat-ass tires BAMF has this bike dialed. BAMF spent miles and miles (and beers and beers) getting this whip just right. This bike was made for jumping curbs, giving the middle finger to the gas companies and ripping through town all night.
The Piledriver starts with a mean steel fixie frame with extra clearance for big ‘ol 700x40c fatties. The fork is stout as a bouncer at a strip club and has a disc brake up front for those times you find yourself needing to stop in a hurry (beer sale). There’s one beautiful gear 46x16t and nothing but the quiet hum of a fixie drivetrain. There’s a BAMF riser bar and BAMF Brass Knuckle stem holding everything together in the cockpit. The 32-spoked deep dish wheels will keep you pounding through town without a care. That’s the idea of the BAMF Piledriver-there’s enough crap in the world to deal with and your bike shouldn’t be one more problem. The Piledriver is the answer to traffic jams, annoying coworkers, early morning meetings and overcompensating ass-hats that drive Cadillac Escalades.
The BAMF Frame
The BAMF’s foundation is solid steel creation with a 120mm track rear end, disc tab on the fork and 1-1/8” integrated headset. The frame has a 27.2 seat post diameter and a 68mm English threaded bottom bracket. The head tube is designed to accept IS-2 standard threadless 1-1/8” bearings.
The BAMF Fit
Sizing a fixie bike is no different, or more difficult, than any other style of bike. By reviewing the size chart you will see a measurement called the “Eff Top Tube”, also known as the Effective Top Tube Measurement. This is what the top tube would measure if it was parallel to the ground. It is an imaginary line the runs from the center of the head tube to the center of the seat tube if the seat tube was extended like a traditional frame. The size chart also lists suggested heights for the different frame sizes. This is far more helpful in sizing a bike than standing over the top tube and pulling up on the handlebars (which tells you nothing about the fit of a bike). BAMF offers four sizes to accommodate riders large and small. It will be easy to find a fit for all of our customers.
The stem can also be flipped and adjusted for a lower back-friendly position to a more streamline position in minutes. The lower top tube keeps the center of gravity low and the makes for an easy approach to getting on the bike. This BAMF bike was designed with the user’s needs and comfort as the #1 priority.
The BAMF Feel
The BAMF crew spent a lot of time getting this frame right. You will immediately feel the smooth flow of a nice slick fat tire on the pavement. The larger footprint in the corners will have you railing corners at higher speeds. There’s a nice little riser bar to take care of the steering. Thin enough to squeak through traffic yet wide enough to allow for easy directional changes.
