A mate bought a Ragley recently, that's gone all slack too.

Kaiser: I have to agree with you on that photo, something is waaaay wrong with that. However, I have a very similar frame, made in 2002 and with shorter travel forks on it is a brilliant ride.

I also have a 95 Diabolo in 731 and that is another really fun bike.

The difference with the Ragley is that only the front end is slack, and the bottom bracket's vaguely level with the axles :)

It's got a 120mm fork on an 80mm frame. 'tis all.
