Bitmap Works

The Bitmap gets the Airdrop Works treatment with Pike Ultimates, Hope 35 wheels and Burgtec finishing kit.

If you're buying a bike like the Bitmap then you know your stuff. The quality of design and workmanship is top-notch, the geometry is dialled and the spec is bang up to date; it's fast, direct and a heap of fun to ride. a frame like that demands a build kit that can handle the pace and the Works build delivers in spades.

The fork's obvious: the 2020 Rockshox Pike Ultimate RC2 - if there's a better trail fork out there we'd like to know about it. SRAM GX Eagle 1x12 gets you up to speed and the Guide RE 4-pot brakes do the stopping. It's a lot of brake for a hardtail but it makes sense on a bike designed to charge everywhere.

As with all our Works builds we call in Burgtec for finishing kit so there's a 35mm Mk2 Enduro stem, RideWide alloy bar, Bartender grip and The Cloud saddle. For maximum grip we spec a big WTB Vigilante 27.5x2.5" up front and a 2.4" Trail Boss out back, rolling on Hope's new Pro 4 Fortus 35 wheelset.

There are hardcore hardtails and hardcore hardtails. This is the latter.

  • The Bitmap hardtail frame was designed in Sheffield and developed on trails throughout the UK. As with all our bikes, it's built to be simple but effective. It's also fully up to date, with a Boost 12x148mm rear axle (included), integrated 180mm brake mount, a threaded BB shell and stealth dropper compatibility. Plenty of clearance for 2.6" tyres.

    If you have any questions regarding compatibility, please contact us.

  • We often get asked these questions so we've put together some quick answers for you. More information is available on our Tech Pages, Shipping and Warranty Pages.

    How long does it take to build a bike?
    Normally around a week for a standard bike. If you have custom options it can take longer but we make this clear in your custom build quote. Things can be a little slower at busy times, but we keep you posted on progress.

    Can I make changes to the build kit?
    Yes. All our bikes are built to order so we’re happy to customise for you. The best thing to do is contact us and we’ll produce a custom build quote for you.

    Can I have a different length dropper post?
    We put a 150mm Stealth Reverb on as standard, but if you’d rather have a 125mm or a 170mm Reverb, no problem. Contact us after you’ve placed your order to discuss.

    How much does shipping cost?
    Shipping costs vary depending on what you order and where you live. Take a look at our Shipping Page for more information.

    The size & colour I want is out of stock. Can I preorder?
    If it's out of stock now, chances are it's due back in soon. If you'd like to reserve one your can place a preorder. Contact us.
