Best sort of bikes these ones. And that ragley is great, came so close to buying one when I bought this:


Chumba HX1, 650b'd, revelations, saint brakes, big wide bars.

Quote from the other thread:
Oh man. If my VooDoos height wasn't so high I'd so be 650Bing it. Took me ten years to get a Ti hardtail, 650B will have to wait. Although, I might be buying a cheap cromo hardtail, welding plates on it and trying to put my Nuvinci above the BB. If the BBs low enough, I'll be 650Bing it fo sure.
Looks great. Did you rock it with 26ers before? How much more doey is it now? Ride report please.
Some fricken nice hardtails popping up. I was feeling a bit oldschool and freakish. Thought hardtails where for the smooth track 29er club only now days.
I'm going to start a new thread for All MTN hardtails if people would like to throw their bikes in there. Keep this thread more for the expected 5-6" trail blazers.
I've given the bike a big ol' write up here: http://www.rotorburn.com/forums/showthread.php?238757-The-team&p=2553061&viewfull=1#post2553061

My only bike. Bought the frame recently when the rear shock on my dually died, mainly just out of curiosity. Been awesome so far, reckon I'll stick with it. Good way to make old trails feel new again!

Ragley Blue pig first generation one, bought the day they were available from crc a few years ago, here`s a pick of her at Rawsons pass Mt Kosciuszko ( in april it bloody snowed) and doing a hot lap around Bathurst. It is definitely been an all mountains bike:smile-new:

I have almost finished my year and half on the Charge and it has been a blast. took a bit of getting used to coming off a 140mm DS, but has been the most fun I have had in ages re-learning how to ride.

Mine sits unsagged at 71° seat tube and 65° head angle with 140mm Pikes. Plenty of cheap deals on pigs on CRC, or alternatively the new On-One 456 Evo is designed by the same guy, costs $275US + shipping and the Geo is almost identical.

just rebuilt/reclaimed my Cove Foreplay, single speed, 140mm forks, 730mm bars

would probably benefit from a Works Comps headset to slacken it off............. any in stock Rod? 127mm headtube, traditional 1 1/8th, could go -1* or 1.5* if possible

it looked like this a year or 2 ago.



will take an up to date pic soonish...

I am looking at my next HT AM purchase at the moment. I have ridden just about every DS rig in the category and just did not find them as much fun - so it is HT for me.

Options so far are either the new 456 Ti (coming out in a month or two), a Stanton Slackline Ti (probably a three month wait), Privee Production Shan (little worried about how versatile this is by comparison to the first two) or a custom Ti build from Triton... Even with the higher cost of the Ti frames they still run at a lot less than a full DS rig. Considering a 650B compatible build for the custom job but not sold on that as wheels are still too rare and what it picks up on the pedal it loses in the tights.
