    New build. Ragley Blue Pig.

    Picked up this 2011 Blue pig for a steal.

    Medium frame
    150mm Rockshox Revelation
    Sun Ringle Charger Pro wheels

    All came together.

    Then I pulled from parts bin or bought what I is not already have. I will be going with an XT 11- speed drivetrain in the spring. For now it's 1x9 XTR with Paul's Thumbies.

    Lots to come. Stay tuned.

    What did you pay for the frame? I have a Blue Pig X that is too small for me- it's a medium

    I paid 500 shipped to me for the frame, fork, wheelset, 2 sets of tires, XT bottom bracket and headset.

    Nice! Thanks dude. I really wish mine was the right size for me. I've always liked the looks of the Pig. I tried it set up with a 140mm Marzochi 44RLO, 65mm stem and a set back seatpost and it just felt too tight. I think the next size up would have been good but not so easy to find in the US...

    Ha! Just saw you're from MI- I grew up in Muskegon... many years ago. Now I'm in SoCal and sometimes miss all the green to ride in.

    Nope. From my local mba forums actually. It was a great deal. Fork is fully rebuilt with paperwork. It's in real good condition.


    Here's the build list.
    M bluepig frame
    150mm RS Rev fork
    26" SunRingle Charger Pro Rims and hubs
    Xt bb
    Cane Creek HS
    Firefly 50mm stem
    Kore OCD flat bars 800mm trimming to 760-780 after a few rides
    Race face strafe grips
    Giant MPH brakes
    Pauls thumbies shifter (1x9)
    Xt cassette
    XTR derailleur
    Funn Ridge crank
    Race Face NW 32 tooth ring
    Xpedo Platform Pedals
    Giant 75mm dropper post
    Charge Spoon saddle


    I will be throwing the full 1x11 XT kit on in the spring. But for now this will do just fine as I am only 700 total into the build.

    Hi, do you still have that blue pig? I used to have one but I had to sell it a few years ago and now I am looking for one to buy. Please let me know if you are interested in selling preferably the house frame only, but open to different options
