    There are a few 18in and 20in Ragley Ti’s out there, though I’m not sure who exactly.

    Just ordered all my Ragleys for the Shops today, should have a Ti demo built at some point soon but im due my Ti frames at the end of the Month. They look lovely though 😀

    Graphics for the BluePig are also fab!

    I’m surprised you can’t just make one up based on a few chosen key phrases. Just as long as you mention the butyl tubes, you should have them eating out of your hand.

    druidh – butyl tubes ? you’ve lost me ?

    tlr – people can detect the chemical make up of tubes just by riding them,

    apparently.

    no really. apparently.

    oh and i wanted to ask you a few q’s about a cddb…

    I’m an ‘owner’. I just didn’t pay. Don’t hate me.

    There are more pics of my bike here if you haven’t seen them already.

    TLR – direct question – have you requested a test ride of a Blue Pig at Blazing Saddles?

    Hijack!

    Ed-O: are you willing to talk about the BluePig and Mmmbop or has Brant sworn you to secrecy?

    Our Ti will be in soon and we’re making plans for our Blue Pig demo’s 16″ and 18″ planned and yes that is a blatant plug. http://www.ride-bikes.com

    Ed’s is far nicer than Brant’s.

    That’s the only two actually being ridden, no?

    Stickers? how about some lazer etched graphics? That would impress me.

    I could have ago at engraving one with a old school compass if you like? be cheaper than a lazer 😆

    I’m sure someone can do it, but I prefer scotchbright pads and a fresh sticker kit when you want to make it look nice again.

    No. The first mini batch of 18’s and 20’s (Ti) are nearly sold out. So they must be somewhere (one is at Chevin).

    When you say “sold out” do you mean sold to shops or sold to punters? Just curious…

    “Sold out”???

    Ah. I thought you were suggesting something…..

    Brant – No, I have not requested a test ride at Blazin Saddles.

    To shops, and then to punters.

    Someone put 2 and 2 and got 5.
    Cheers.

    i’ve had a go on one for a couple of hours and didn’t get on with it at all i’m afraid. It was incredibly rigid, and the very slack head angle and longish chainstays made it ride like a much bigger bike. Found it very difficult to flick it about in the singletrack. Bars were too low for me though, but that were no spacers to adjust the height. It did kind of made a bit of sense when the trail got really steep. I think it would be good on faster more open descents, but it didn’t really work for me as an all rounder.

    I’ve only really ridden the Ti.

    HH – it’s certainly designed for steep/tech/fast, and not “an allrounder” as such, though happily with a steep seat angle it’ll bimble about nicely if you want to. Long chainstays? 16.5in? Depends what you’re coming from I guess???

    The rack mount on the dropout is only for a cheeky “yes love, it’ll fit a childseat” so owners can get it past the wife.

    How does this compare to a Ti On-One 456?

    Newer therefore better. Thats why Lecht is having one 😉

    Guy Kesteven, is at this very moment, finalising a review of the Ragley Ti – having swapped the majority of parts straight off his On-One Ti 456. Though I made him fit a shorter stem.

    I am keen to see the results 🙂

    HH previously said he thought there were too many Ti hardtails. Happily that means if this one isn’t right for him, there are others. Ti Ragley is certainly different from a bunch of others out there – which is fun. Choice is good.
