    Like your build by the way... since I'm running a Fox Vanilla, I'm gonna do blue ano bits on mine.
    I'm running the Sunline V-one stem(65mm) and handlebars(745mm). Excellent combo for me. There are more pics of the build on the previous page.

    Updated - Ragley Blue Pig

    Finished upgrading my "do-it-all" bike over the winter. Can't wait to get this out on dirt after mud season.

    That would be me being a knucklehead. Until you pointed it out, I hadn't even noticed. It was a couple of years ago, but I can only assume that I signed up at home, forgot I had, and then signed up again at work.

    Hey Danski.

    I am just over 6'2" and its a large (19 inch) frame.

    The bike is running a 80mm stem at the moment with 120mm forks and zero degree offset post.

    When the 09 110 - 140mm Revs go on it i will play with stem/bar and post combos then.

    It is a good fit and while i don't feel cramped there is always finessing to make things 100%.

    It has only been on a short ride so far but i was amazed at how well it does everything. Climbs brilliantly.... climbing is not my forte and my fitness levels are not great at the moment but i was firing up climbs i struggled with on my stumpjumper fsr even when fit. It decends so well and once i got used to the extra feedback from riding a hardtail again I was loving it.

    I have never been able to really rail corners before... this bike just makes you do it.

    Its love. I will own it til i kill it. If i can that is.

    Well, I cant see the point in shortening them for the sake of a month (when they'll be switched out entirely).

    Not to worry bro id do the same thing, in fact my son replaced derailleur cables and housing on one of our bikes and they have some massive curve, im to lazy to fix his hurry job so its been like that for almost a year.

    Some really nice bikes on here. This is my all mountain hardtail. I've had a lot of different bikes over the years (07 bullit, jackal, cove hustler, giant ac, giant vt and others) but this seems to make me want to get out and ride more then any of the others. There are things I would like to upgrade but its pretty good for now. Can handle anything I throw at it.

    Looks Sh1t, i bet it rides like cr@p



    You really have turned "meTRo" with the red anno bits.

    must catch up and test ride one of these days. The Reign is being stripped down tonight and i may even start building up the Ragley.

    Gorgeous bike...
    ...but yes, more red ano is always needed!

    Heres an excuse - get a more even spread by adding a bit of red ano in the middle, eg: seatpost clamp, chainring bolts or bashguard...
    Red lock-on clamps and endcaps always look good too.

    You can never have too much red ano!



    Ok - just to prove I'm not too anal to get this thing dirty (but damn it took ages to clean )...



    (Yes, I know the damned hose is loose at the back, the ziptie broke on the way round... luckily for me, the shop (inside the hut) gave me one so it wasn't dangling the next ride)

    Haha... Yeah there is more red on its way but it's still a mountain bike so knocks, bumps and scratches are par for the course.

    Seat clamp, lock on clamps, chainring bolts and maybe a red hope BB in time. It also now has brand new white and red 09 Revelation 426 Air U turns.

    Can't wait to get back out on the trails with the new fork. The fox floats were nice but a little flexy. It climbs so well i was quite amazed and the downhills are a blast. maybe later in the week if the cyclone north of here doesn't soak us with too much bloody rain..... it seems to be raining all the time of late...... must be because i have a new bike.

    Dual suspension is all well and good but hardtails are now my kind of bike.
