Bought this for a bike the I subsequently sold. Brand new unfitted and unused, purchased from CRC two months ago, I no longer own any 27.5 bikes so have no use for it. Steerer tube is uncut with no star nut installed. Comes supplied with two volume spacer and a star nut. It's 15mm x 110mm boost spacing, with 170mm of travel and a tapered steerer tube. Will fit 27.5 x2.8 easily, 27.5 x 3.0 depending on the tyre and 29 x2.3 just about. The Fork is torque-cap compatible. This fork would be perfect for santa cruz nomad or transition patrol build etc... and is €150 cheaper than any other yari I've found online. If you require a fork with shorter travel you can easily reduce the travel by purchasing a replacement air spring, it only costs about 30 or 40e. I'm based in Dublin, Ireland but could ship to the UK if necessary. It's priced to sell so, No silly offers please.

This is a great chance to snap up a nearly new XL Ragley bluepig at a bargain price. I Bought this bike last year while waiting for my full suss to arrive and built it up with a rockshox pike rct3 fork, shimano xt m8000 groupset. The bluepig is an incredible capable and playful hardtail with a 64 degree head angle 480mm reach and super short chainstays. Tons of clearance at the back too for muddy irish conditions. Rides really well with the 2.6 tyres but i have plenty other tyres if you'd rather something else. The 2019 bike is €2200 with a worse build kit so you can save yourself a ton of money at this price. Sorry the bike isn't perfectly clean in the photos but it is now. There's a few tiny chips form storage which are pictured but I've priced accordingly. The bike has been barely ridden as my full suss arrived earlier than expected. I've literally ridden this bike once since february so can't justify keeping it. Bike is size XL which is 480mm reach, perfect for someone 5'10 to 6'6 or so. Built up with solid and reliable parts and is fully serviced and ready to go. Rear wheel has just been rebuilt on a brand new mavic rim, chain and cassette are basically new, fork has been serviced and only ridden twice since and the reverb is a warranty replacement that literally has one ride. New brake pads, brakes bled, new cables, wheels trued new saddle, new grips. Pedals displayed are not included but can include shimano deore trail spd pedals or shimano saint flat pedals. Open to reasonable offers and can meet at the GAP or Ticknock if needed contact me for any more details.

Comparison Test: Are Wider Rims Better? We Try 4 Different Widths
It would be really interesting to know about rim strength in relation to rim width. Are wider rims more likely to suffer from dents and dings, with the rim closer to danger while cornering?
