They announced to be back in 11 days on Insta

Good they are back, just a shame about the thousands of potential lost customers who bought NS Eccentrics instead as they got fed up waiting to be able to buy a Ragley.


Yeh it's quite a crowded market, lot of choice out there these days (which is great for us). I was looking at the new Identiti AKA but very interested to see how the new Ragleys compare.

I just don't get Ragley as a business, they design good stuff, build it seems in small batch, they get amazing reviews and happy customers, sell out, they could sell loads more but instead don't bother making anything for two years, potential customers give up and go elsewhere. It was September 2017 I wanted to buy a new mmmbop, that's been an impossible task still to date even though their website would have you believe they are current and on sale.

Maybe they just make a little money and ride bikes until it's spent.. could be a nice way of life. ;-)

Photos of new bikes have just been posted on their Facebook page. Looks like geo updates to existing plus another 29r option.

Trails have been slop for several weeks straight now, so I decided to do a couple of small upgrades to my BigWig. Swapped my XT chainring for this Wolftooth DropStop and added a OneUp 'Bash Guide.' Honestly just wasting money until the trails dry up Rolleyes

Upgraded to a Wolftooth drop stop chainring and added a OneUp Bash Guide

Wouldn’t have keeping the steel XT ring for the slop been a better idea? Alu rings just grind away in mud.

Fair point. I was planning on waiting until after the muddy season has cleared up to get back out on the trails anyway. They damage easily in these conditions.

I have a Ragley Bluepig from 2016 and have snapped the rear axle handle.
Looks like I need a 142mmx12 formula XQR-12E 159mm (actual length is 180mm), m12xp1.5 axle. I can't seem to find a replacement anywhere! what have people used as a replacement?

Found some axles on ebay that might work - https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/MT-ZOOM-SHIMANO-E-THRU-REAR-BOOST-THRU-AXLE-12-x-148-x-1-5mm-T11-V-Light-41g/152596295814

Hi Jono
Check out the Wolftooth website. Think they do a 178mm length one which should do the job. As long as the thread pitch matches (why there are different thread pitch standards for rear axles is beyond me!).

Cheers , ended up getting one of these - https://mrpbike.com/products/race-axle has longer threads than Wolftooth.

Ah, can't go wrong with MRP. I've just bought one of their Ramp Control things for my fork.

Dammit. I've forgotten how to upload photos from my tablet.

Just ordered a Ragley mmmbop frame from chain reaction. It’s going to be a long week waiting for it.
