is a small design company founded by Stefan Sack of Bionicon fame, who believes that there is a healthy niche market for technical upgrades designed to enhance the performance of popular mountain bike models. Bike Yoke’s first product is an alternative shock extension yoke that allows Specialized Enduro owners to swap out the proprietary damper with any suitable shock. The replacement yokes will ship in March ’16 with an MSRP of 88.99€ (USD TBD). Bike Yoke
The CNC-machined aluminum replacement fits standard, ½-inch shock eyelets and is similar to yokes used by the likes of Pivot Cycles and Lapierre. The new yoke duplicates the stock geometry, uses the existing Specialized bearing hardware, and arrives with all the necessary bushings and bolts to interface with your chosen brand of shock. Yokes are available for 26, 27.5, and 29-inch-wheel Enduro models from 2010 to present. PB will be reviewing Bike Yoke's new link soon.
Stefan is working on additional aftermarket yokes, as well as alternative linkage offerings intended to enhance suspension kinematics and geometry. All products are designed and tested in Germany and produced in Taiwan. At the moment, Bike Yoke’s products are available directly from its on-line store.
