Our well known 4 Cross bike is coming back for the season of 2016, but improved and much stiffer then you know it. The frame is renewed with wider bottom bracket shell, bigger clearance between the seat stay/chain stay and the tires which allows the usage of wider tires, tapered head tube allowing the usage of forks with steerer 1.5-1 1/8 . The rear end is additionally stiffened by the use of 142X12 dropouts, and for the people higher then 187 cm we offer XL size. All these improvements you can find as bikes assembled in two price levels, the higher level is equipped with 120 mm air spring fork RockShox Reba with 15 mm axle,the rear derailleur is type 2, reducing the chain play, the braking torque is delivered by Shimano, so at the end we ended up with not only very stiff, but also light bike.

One Мan Аssembly Process
The so-called “One Мan Аssembly” process is a key-stone for the quality of every RAM Bike you see on the trails or in the city parks. Every single bike is being delivered to the dealer completely assembled and ready-to-go, with brakes and gears all set. You don’t have to do additional settings – bike components are not just attached to the frame, but assembled by a person, who is a passionate biker and knows the price of good work. In RAM factory we do even more – every mechanic guarantees with his name and signature for his works’ quality.
The final result is a bike that entirely responds to a biker’s attitude – not only looking as a MTB, but it is a Real Adventure Machinery. “One man assembly” is a time and resource- consuming process contrary to usual bike producing, but the difference is fully in favours of biker who chose RAM.
Hand Crafted Wheels
The process of hand lacing wheels is a key stone in our philosophy – individual attention to every wheel on every bike. The whole process is focused on a careful selection of details (spokes), and using only reliable components to avoid any failure of the wheel.
Pressure of every spoke in going under strict control during the whole wheel-building process. The main purpose is that – pressure should be optimized on the entire rim constantly – the goal achieved is longer life of the wheel and reducing repairing works on it after many miles on the tracks.
This process of “wheels lacing” takes up to one more hour of the mechanics’ work, but it gives you value – your RAM is more durable, even on the hardest rocky tracks!
