    No Brant=No Ragley?

    So I finally have all my stuff together and go to order my frame(blue pig x) from CRC and they are all out, every size and every color and it's not just that frame it's all of the Ragley's.

    I have'nt been on here for a while so I come to see what is up and I see that Brant left Ragley.So I was wondering if that's it, are they done? If not are the frames coming back soon? It says September 23rd on the pigx but somehow I don't believe it. Anybody know whats up?

    You will buy it with a Titus name for double the price.

    Nukeproof was off to a good start too. But who really cares, somebody will make good bikes.

    Nuke proof has people beside Brant working on it, they'll be fine.

    Besides, a lot of the Nukeproof stuff (hubs, seatpost, pedals...) is just rebadged catalogue stuff anyway.

    Brant developed Ragley and a couple of other brands but, as far as I can tell, he didn't own the brands. Chain Reaction Cycles owns Ragley and they have good products there that people are buying. Why kill the goose that is laying golden eggs?

    " ... Richards to set up his Shedfire consultancy firm with designer Matt Booth, developing brands Ragley, Nukeproof and Vitus for Chain Reaction Cycles and Hotlines."

    "Working with CRC has been brilliant but Iíve missed the aspect of just being as daft as I want. Being with such a big company didnít really allow me that freedom."

    Brant Richards Rejoins On-One To Head Titus Cycles - BikeRadar

    Ľ They say you never forget your first love Ė Shedfire and Brant Richards rejoin On-One and head up Titus. Shed Fire : Designing for On-One, Titus and Planet X from Calderdale.

    I haven't spotted any official statements from CRC on this. Maybe they are still trying to figure out how to keep those brands moving on? The frames that are out of stock do not show as "Discontinued". They still have "Expected in Stock" dates.

    "it IS possible that you are faster or slower than anybody else who is having at least as much if not more or less fun"
