Didn't want to post on this but I think its about time I did.
I am the chap who has the seat tube issue with his pig.
I bought it almost a year ago and was pretty much the last 20" pig in the country (I know this as I search the whole country).
4 rides later the Ragley seat clamp snapped, found another that fitted but for the life in me I couldn't get the seat post to stay put.
Spoke to Brant Richards regarding this issue, this was about June 2010 who said he would replace the frame under warranty but the new ones wouldn't be due in till Sep. He said shim the post and all will be sorted.
Sep came and went and spoke to Brant again who told me it was now Dec for delivery.
You guessed it, Dec came and went so did Jan, then was told it was May 2011.
The pig has not been ridden since Aug 2010 and will never be rode again.
I understand about batch orders etc but it doesn't help the fact I still don't have a bike nearly a year after I bought it.
Yes I could have got a refund but chose not to.
From what Brant told me on the phone a month or so ago, was the factory made the show samples perfect but when it came to the production run, all of them failed QC inspection. The factory were making cockups on the tube profiles etc.
I loved the ride of the pig but did find it a bit harsh on the old knees.
