Ragley Ti demo fork choice dilemma
I thought about LYRIKS cause they close alps down but i think being a Ti frame then the weight of the build will be precluding their use.
Hi MT – sorry – not grumpy when you make me laugh.
There is a difference of about £140 at retail… shouldnt matter but it makes the frame and fork pack either over 2k or under 2k… pyschologically its a tough one.Posted 8 years ago
Is the frame really light? I'd say folk demming the frame will be interested in the frame foremost, so fork choice is secondary. I'd put whatever fork you think is better on it – and you must have a clear mind on that, being a highly knowledgeable shop manager etc>? OMG!!!WTF111Posted 8 years ago
We are building a Ragley Ti for playing on and selling in the shoppe
I want to make it as economic as possible being a business but want to know what you guys would like on the front end
Fox 32 Float RLC QR15
RockShox 140mm Revelations Maxle Lite
There is quite a difference in price – trade and retail as you would imagine so we want to get this right.
Also… anyone looking to get one in Edinburgh and want to book a shot on it. No tyrekickers though!

Hey Al – your points have been weighed in my mind already. Irrespective of the actual weight, i feel that people will perceive the necessity to keep it lightish – we see the 2 main benefits of Ti as being lightweight and 'ride feel'.
To sum up (as you would you HOTSHOT CITY BOY) i reckon its worth keeping it 'light' with some Fox's. However the value of the Revs cannot be denied.
I think though we might go with the Revs.Posted 8 years ago
I would have thought both forks are well received and no one's going to say "well I would have bought the frame were it not for the **** forks I test rode on it".
I too can see reasoning for keeping it light. I guess it's not clear what the frame's intended build is – rated for 120-150mm forks – meant for "steep stuff", "climbs sublimely" etc.
Hey – it does everything well. Where do I sign up?Posted 8 years ago
