Ragley Big Wig Hardtail Frame

First launched in 2013, the original Bigwig defined what a modern steel 29er hardtail frame should be: Strong, light, adaptable, agile, forgiving over rough terrain, huge fun to ride and with a great ability to carry speed and steam roll over everything!

Building on the success of the original, Ragley wanted the new Bigwig to keep the soul of the old frame by retaining as many of the original features as possible: It is made from custom drawn triple butted 4130 CrMo steel and features classic Ragley attributes such as a 44mm head tube, 3 Finger Bridge, Taperlite seat tube and a chainstay mounted disc brake calliper. To bring the frame right up to date they added a whole host of new features such as a Boost 148mm rear hub spacing, better tyre clearance, better stand-over and internal dropper seatpost compatibility.

Ragley's updated trail geometry uses a long front centre, short 435mm chainstays, slammed BB and a slack head angle of 65˚Static (66.5˚ Sagged at 25%) for improved handling and manoeuvrability.

When coupled with a 130mm travel fork and a short stem, the result is a long, low, slack and planted feeling bike with excellent grip, impeccable trail handling and stability that inspires confidence at high speed and over steep/technical terrain.

27.5"+ Compatibility means the Bigwig is more versatile than ever! The tyre clearance from the revised 3-finger bridge is so good that the frame is 27.5"+ compatible. Now you can now fit 27.5"+ wheels with wide 44mm rims and massive 3" tyres allowing you to adapt your Bigwig to suit the conditions you want to ride.

The 2017 Ragley Bigwig 29" Hardtail is a Trail/All Mountain/Enduro Race friendly machine for those who demand a versatile, go anywhere and ride everything kind of bike that inspires confidence in every situation.  At home on any terrain, from tearing up your local singletrack, to back country adventures in the middle of nowhere, smashing out runs in the Alps or racing Enduro; it is the weapon of choice for those who want to ride everything!
