NEW for 2013, we introduce the Ragley Marley! The Marley features our all NEW 2013 Trail Geometry and is the alloy version based on our new 2013 Ragley Piglet. The Marley features a custom hydro-formed triple butted 7005 T6 series aluminium frame and our revised trail geometry. Building on the success of our earlier Piglet we have retained our innovative features such as the 3 Finger Bridge and our Taperlite seattube. The inclusion of ISCG 05 tabs hint at this bikes true intentions for getting lairy on the trails and hammering the descents!
The Marley uses the 44mm headset standard which permits the use of headsets from Cane Creek, Nukeproof and others to accommodate all steerer tube configurations. With the right headset, this frame can take a 1.125in, tapered or 1.5in fork.
We recommend Nukeproof headset models – 44IESS and 44IISS (standard), 44IETS (tapered) or 44EEOS (1.5in steerer).
NEW 2013 Trail Geometry:
Our revised geometry retains a slack headangle of 67deg to provide impeccable trail manners when coupled with a mid to long travel fork. We have dropped the bottom bracket height to lower your centre of gravity and inspire confidence through the rough stuff with improved handling and stability.
Complete bike builds feature a RockShox Sektor 140mm fork with SRAM X7 shifters and derailleurs. Avid Elixir1 hydraulic disc brakes will help control your speed when the trail points down with surefooted stability provided by high volume Maxxis High Roller tyres.
Ragley finishing kit completes the build with bars, stem, seatpost, grips and saddle.
Ragley Marley Hardtail Frame Features:
• Custom hydro-formed 7005 series aluminium
• CE EN14766
• “Three Finger” chainstay bridge is exclusive to Ragley, and improved for this year, being made from a single investment cast piece. Allows massive tyre clearance so you can fit 2.5in rubber with massive chainring and tyre clearance. Happy with 36t middle rings and gives resilience to any attempted chainsuck/derailment. Bridgeless design gives better mud clearance.
