NEW for 2013, we introduce the Ragley Marley! The Marley is based on our highly successful Piglet and features a custom hydro-formed triple butted 7005 T6 series aluminium frame and our revised trail geometry. Building on the success of the 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).
Ragley Marley Frame Geometry:
Our revised geometry retains the head angle of 67deg yet drops the bottom bracket height to lower your centre of gravity and inspire confidence through the rough stuff. When coupled with a mid to long travel fork, the improved geometry results in impeccable trail manners, handling and stability which should see you go up, along and down faster than ever before!
Ragley Marley Hardtail Frame Features:
Custom hydro-formed 7005 series aluminium

"Three Finger" chainstay bridge is exclusive to Ragley, and 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.
Bolt on Cable guides located on the underside of the top tube allow for neat and tidy adaptable routing to suit your set up.
