Ragley Bikes has offered a major update for the Blue Pig, which was first released in 2009. This 2011, the Blue Pig is updated with a revamped frame. With a 44mm head tube, riders have the option to run the fork they prefer, such as a 1.5in fork on a steel hardtail.

Added in the 2011 Blue Pig updates are hardcore hardtail credentials. These include ISCG05 mounts that enable riders to single ring with a chain guide and to fit a dropper post. Another one is the clearance for running 2.5in tires from the single investment cast three-finger bridge behind the bottom bracket.

Reinforcing the 2011 Ragley Blue Pig are Maxxis High Roller 2.3in tires. Other great components include Hayes Stroker Ryde Comps brakes that come with a 180mm rotor at the front and a160mm at the back. The Blue Pig tackles technical steep stuff and climbs very well….

Ragley first launched about a year ago by none other than Richard Shedfire, and now they are releasing the new Ragley TD-1 29er frame for 2010. For 2010 the Ragley TD-1 29er is aimed towards a 440mm fork, which is different since most 29 inch mountain bikes use a 470 to 490mm fork. By using a shorter fork, this drops the handlebars by 30 – 50mm, allowing a better racing position.

The Ragley Ragley TD-1 29er 2010 frame is built by a familiar name Lynskey Performance, while each frame is manufactured in the USA. Featuring sliding dropouts, horizontal oval top tube, and curved seat tube. Presented is a aluminum model, but a retail friendly steel version will also release to accommodate your budget. Pre orders can now be placed from Ragley retailers, and holds a retail price of about $1,800 USD.
