Ragley stands by the quality of their finished product; from design, testing, manufacturing, assembly and transport they insist on the best! Occasionally they do encounter problems and on this occasion have had several bikes damaged in transit due to poor packaging from the manufacturer.
In light of the error we are selling these specific shop soiled models with additional discount off our regular retail price.
These bikes have minor cosmetic damage to the paintwork of the non drive side fork lower which is superficial to say the least. For a real bargain why not take advantage and buy one now… while stocks last!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by iateyoubutler Best bike i've ever ridden.
This is the first time I've ever tried a single speed system and i wasn't expecting much at the start, but when i used it on some proper downhill single track (Marrin Trail) i was blown away. The system allows the rider to concentrate on the simple essence of riding without the hassle of the gear change. It improves riding ability and was a pleasure to use. I've had full sus bikes before but i prefer this, nothing can beat the absolute control you get with the M74s geometry. Topped of with the fantastically responsive coil spring rockshox its a force to be reckoned with. At this price its unbeatable... LOVE IT!!!! (but replace the seat)

Rated 5 out of 5 Better condition than expected
This bike is being sold as shop soiled with paint damage.
The paint damage I found was a small (2mm x 2mm) slight rub on the fork paint. The paint was only dulled but the coating had not been penetrated.
Effectively this bike was in perfect condition.
It was delivered on Tue am after ordering Friday 4pm.
Preparation was generally good by the manufacturer and CRC. A set of allen keys and pedal spanner were included.
Gears were set up correctly.
The seat post was not greased but that is pretty minor.
The MFR's leaflets for brakes and forks were included.
The MFR's leaflets for the BB and crankset were not included. This may not be needed by some buyers but I like to work on my bike so I have had to find info from youtube, CRC tech dept and an MTB internet forum.
I have not used the bike seriously yet but it feels good so far.
