buying the pig
I have the on-one 456 standard with 150mm fork. I want to try the ragley blue pig because I like the orange paint job & steep(er) seat angle but before I order one, I have few questions:
-Will my current 1-1/18 revelation forks fit the tapered head tube on the blue pig? If so, which headset should I buy? Please give part number or link.
-With the 150mm fork, does any of you guys know the HA on that?
Currently on my 14" frame, I have 22" on my top tube with 80mm stem on my 456 and it is PERFECT! On the blue pig, I want to get the 16" size which already has 23" top tube. My quesiton is:
-Using a shorter stem to compensate for the long top tube on the blue pig, will the 50 or 60mm stem cause the frontend wander more on the ragley than my current 456 setup?
Thank you for your help!
Re: The Headset.
2011 and on Blue Pigs have 44mm headtubes, they will take any of the current steerer standards (1 1/8th, tapered or full 1.5). To fit a normal fork you need either a 44mm Zero stack headset (44ZS) or 44mm 1 1/8th External cup headset (44EC), your choice, external cup will result in a slightly higher front end.
With a 150mm fork at sag, about 67degrees, roughly 1.5 deg slacker than a normal 456.
Re: Stem, I can only guess.
I would think the front end would be fine, the seat tube on the Pig is steeper releative to the wheelbase and you will be riding a longer frame anyway, which also help keep the front end down. But leave it a few rides before putting the 80mm on Ebay!
