The Big Wig 29er features Ragley's Trail Geometry and a custom triple butted and heat treated 4130 Chromoly steel tube-set frame. Building on the success of their other models they have retained innovative features such as the 3 Finger Bridge, Chainstay mounted disc brake calliper and the Taperlite seattube. The slack head angle and inclusion of ISCG 05 tabs hint at this bike’s true intentions for getting lairy on the trails and hammering the descents!
The Big Wig uses the 44mm headset standard which permits the use of headsets from Cane Creek, Nukeproof and others to accommodate all steerer tube configurations. With the right headset, this frame can take a 1 1/8", tapered or 1.5" fork. We recommend Nukeproof headset models - 44IESS and 44IISS (standard), 44IETS (tapered) or 44EEOS (1.5in steerer).
Trail Geometry: Ragley's trail geometry features a head angle of 68.5deg and a bottom bracket drop of 60mm to lower your centre of gravity and inspire confidence through the rough stuff. When coupled with a mid to long travel fork, the improved geometry results in impeccable trail manners, handling and stability which should see you go up, along and down faster than ever before!

"Three Finger" chainstay bridge is exclusive to Ragley, and allows massive tyre clearance so you can fit 2.4in rubber with massive chainring and tyre clearance. Happy with 36t middle rings and gives resilience to any attempted chainsuck/derailment.
Bolt on Cable guides located on the underside of the top tube allow for neat and tidy adaptable routing to suit your set up.
