New 2011 Ragley frames, what do you think i love them both to be honest especially the green 160mm troof which is alloy and the 160mm blue/green Bagger which is steel :lol: :lol:
OOOH and Ragley says if you want to stick a 180mm fork on it.... its cool..
I rekon there is going to be mixed views on these, the MmmBop is no longer in the range

Yup, 2011.

Why do you have two quite similar frames?

I dont actualy have ony of them as yet, i have a bluepig,and my bro has a Ti, but im wanting something a little lighter but cant afford the Ti, and there is no 18 inch MmmBops left anywere, so wondering about the Troof, or maybe the Bogger if its alot lighter than the Bluepig which i doubt it will be, cant find any weights for either of the new frames :cry:

Right, I see. Moved to the right section then.

Surely everyone on this site is a retro rider? So maybe you should update the title of your topic accordingly to 'DON'T LOOK'.

personally i think that troof frame fell out of the ugly tree and hit every branch on the way down . . . . then someone chucked it back up the ugly tree and it had another go at falling again. after that some threw up a chicken korma all over it.

but that's just my opinion . . . . :oops: sorry.

i don't mind the other one too much though, although 180mm forks on a hard tail? even if you are some kind of full on nutcase downhiller/dirt jumper why would you want that?


apologies in advance if i offend :) but i genuinely don't think i have seen an uglier frame.

They don't offend me because they're new, they offend me because they're truly hideous!

Top one is truely ugly and the bottom one looks like it has had a hard frontal accident. No doubt they will sell by the bucketload.


Si

Bottom one looks like someone has pilfered the engine from some awful Hardley Ablestone chopper and stuck some pedals in it's place. All it needs is ape hanger bars and some leather tassels hanging out of each of the grips and you could pedal past a bunch of Hell's Angels making an engine noise and you'd probably get a nod of aproval.

Bleugh!

Ha Ha.....they are strange, I give you that, but totaly likeable. I also dont doubt that they will do what is expected from them.

The Bagger looks like something from the cold war era!, however I can only assume that it will be 6.3Lb, and as designed by BR, be able to survive 3 direct atomic strikes, single handed wipe out the eastern block and destroy anything that gets in its way.
