Ragley Blue Pig upgraded with Bontrager 2.4 XDX AR casing tyres, black SDG BelAir saddle and Race Face AM bars.
Fresh drivetrain to keep the bike going hopefully for another 2 seasons.
The bike has been with me for just over a year now with various forks fitted and proofs to be a great allrounder.

 awesome! will you tell me spesifically about the handlebar and the stem (brand, rise and wide handlebar size, stem size?) Smile
  • + 1
 Thanks. Yes no problem: handlebars are Race Face Atlas AM 3/4" rise (20mm), they are OE version wide at 700mm (aftermarket models were coming at 725mm) and the stem is zero rise Thomson X4 70mm.

 stunning! Whats your fork set at! Looks like you have a long travel HT, very cool mate!

 Thanks Niko, these are 140mm Float forks which I put on instead of the PIKE. The bike rides very well with that travel, works also fine with 120 or 160mm, depending of what you use the bike for.

 Yes, for sure! 140mm sound really good for just about anything! I had the float at 140mm to try on my double and it has a nice balance feel between DH FR and Street DJ! RidEOn!

 Astonishing as always! It looks with 32 even better. Tell me sth about tires.

 Thank you and yes, I think the 32's or something like new RVL's are the best match for that frame.
XDX's are meant to be my off-road/bike marathon tyre - test yet to come.
They are heavier than expected, around 740g - not so impressed with that for a start but these are tubeless ready with stronger aramid casing so should be good for me running them at low pressure and hopefully will avoid unexpected punctures when used with inner tubes (I'm not UST biker).
I had them on two rides out on the tarmac. First impression - heavy and slow compared to RK Supersonic. Second ride - man down! The bike slipped underneath me resulting the broken thumb and I'm out of action for another 5 weeks or so - fu*k! Had a lot of PSI on them so either this was the reason for the failure or they may be simply shit. I hope they will perform better in woods.

 Seems totally bad purchase. Weight is ridiculous! Take sth from Schwalbe: NN, Rocket Ron or Racing Ralph maybe.

 Yes, it well could be I will use XDX'x for some smooth action on the FR bike and fit the Pig back with lighter/thinner 2.2"ish rubber.

 32 na 15tke? F-seria czy float? jak ci się to trzyma i jak ze sztywnoscia?
  • + 1
 Tak 15-stka, Float 32. Dobry jest ale Pike chyba byl sztywniejszy, jednak nie ma to dla mnie wiekszego znaczenia, na tym rowerze nie latam. A co do trzymania sie - wlasnie byl serwisowany bo cieklo z niego jak nie powiem z czego. Mam nadzieje, ze sezon pociagnie bezawaryjnie.

 very nice. looks like there is no back brake as the calliper is mounted in a different place.lol
  • + 1
 yes, the calliper fitting is actually quite smart, some other brands are doing the same.
  • + 1
 Almost certainly one of the best looking do all HT's i've seen
