Kielder Chiller 2019

I can’t say with much certainty when I last took part in a 24 hour race as a member of a team of 4. I’ve dabbled in pairs racing from time to time but the vast majority of endurance racing … Continue reading →

Ragley 2019 range announced

Blue Pig   It’s 10 years since the Blue Pig first hit the trails. The latest iteration is a very different beast to the original, but its intentions haven’t changed. It’s happiest when ridden hard, roosting turns and hammering the descents. From tearing up your local singletrack, exploratory adventures in the wild, racing enduro or […]

Strathpuffer 2019 – Apparently hell CAN freeze over.

It doesn’t matter what the weather forecast says, or what people who are in Strathpeffer for days before the race say – the fact is, nobody can predict the weather at the Strathpuffer. You just have to think how you’re … Continu…

Here comes the Strathpuffer again

Next week I’ll be making the journey north to the Strathpuffer for the 8th time. It’s a race that’s tricky to get to, trickier to get home from and often horrendously tricky to get right on the day. There’s a … Continue reading →

World Solo 24 Hour Championship 2018

I’d decided months before this race that I’d not be doing any more 24 hour solos. I’d had over a year of not really thinking about racing, then a few months of thinking about little else. By the time the … Continue reading →

Kirroughtree Enduro – the view from the start of Stage Five

Deb did her bit for the UK race scene (yet again) at the PMBA Kirroughtree Enduro – supporting her local bike race by volunteering to marshal and was placed at the start of Stage 5, otherwise known as “The Really Hard … Continue reading &#8…

Team JMC – It’s not me!

It seems that lots of people who I meet (and presumably lots of people who I haven’t met) think that ‘Team JMC’ is so-called because it’s named after me. Jason Miles Cycling, or possibly Jason Miles C….with a naughty word … Continue reading &#859…

10@ Kirroughtree 2018

Getting to the start of 10@Kirroughtree race this year for me was super-easy, in fact I can’t remember ever taking part in a race before where halfway around the course I could see my own house. I was even able … Continue reading →

Graft

Blogging a bit more often than I have been doing would seem to be the right thing to do, now I’ve kind of dragged my backside out of my endurance racing sabbatical. Perhaps someone out there is still interested in … Continue reading →

Glentress 7 and the Blur CC

My journey back towards race fitness continued this weekend at the Glentress 7. Unsurprisingly it’s a 7 hour race on a lapped course just up the road at the brilliant Glentress forest. There was little chance of me making an … Continue read…

Ragley 2019 range announced

Blue Pig

100806951 - Bluepig_01
 
It’s 10 years since the Blue Pig first hit the trails. The latest iteration is a very different beast to the original, but its intentions haven’t changed. It’s happiest when ridden hard, roosting turns and hammering the descents. From tearing up your local singletrack, exploratory adventures in the wild, racing enduro or the annual alpine pilgrimage; the Blue Pig will take whatever you can throw at it.

We have tweaked the test winning geometry, increased rear wheel spacing to boost and finessed tubing cross sections on the rear triangle to deliver a little more comfort.

Pedal up, get rowdy down, repeat.

  • Head Angle: 64˚Static
  • Effective Seat Angle: 74˚
  • Chain stay length: 425mm
  • Rear Axle: Ragley 12mm x 148mm Thru-Axle
  • BB Shell: 73mm BSA
  • Wheel Size: 27.5”
  • Max Tyre Size: 2.6”
  • ISCG 05 Tabs
  • 5 Year Warranty and lifetime crash replacement
  •  
    Big Wig

    100806966 - BigWig_01
     
    The Big Wig is the wagon-wheeled sibling to the Blue Pig. Versatility remains the name of the game and whether you’re in it for the miles or the smiles, the Big Wig brings the party.

    Slack and long, this sure-footed hardtail is at home lapping the trail centre, conquering an epic back country adventure or levitating between the tape at your local enduro race.

    The latest iteration takes up where the old model left off, just with some added reach, a slightly steeper seat angle and a whisker off the head angle. Like the Blue Pig, the stays have been refined for added comfort in the saddle, but without compromise in the direction that counts.

    If you don’t understand 29-inch hardtails, you haven’t ridden the Big Wig yet.

  • Head Angle: 65˚Static
  • Effective Seat Angle: 74˚
  • Chain stay length: 435mm
  • Rear Axle: Ragley 12mm x 148mm Thru-Axle
  • BB Shell: 73mm BSA
  • ISCG 05 Tabs
  • Wheel Size: 29”
  • Max Tyre Size: 2.5”
  •  
    Piglet

    100806936 - Piglet_01
     
    You like the Blue Pig but you’re concerned it’s hard-riding credentials don’t quite suit the cut of your jib? The Piglet was designed as its milder mannered counterpart. Built around a shorter travel fork and general trail riding vital statistics; it’s the perfect all-round UK mountain bike.

    Still designed to be ridden with gumption, the new frame has been given a friendly dose of boost with a 148×12 to stiffen up the rear. Reach grows, headangle slackens, seat angle steepens: so whilst it’s aimed firmly at trail, it will still speeder bike through the trees with accuracy and poise.

    Small wheels and Ragley’s trail geometry, fun for miles.

  • Head Angle: 65.5˚Static
  • Effective Seat Angle: 74˚
  • Chain stay length: 425mm
  • Rear Axle: Ragley 12mm x 148mm Thru-Axle
  • BB Shell: 73mm BSA
  • ISCG 05 Tabs
  • Wheel Size: 27.5”
  • Max Tyre Size: 2.6”
  • 5 Year Warranty and lifetime crash replacement
  •  
    Mmmbop

    100806910 - Mmmbop_01
     
    The Mmmbop gets showered with the same geometry fairy dust as the award winning Blue Pig, but uses alloy as the main ingredient. The same fun-loving character remains with a no-nonsense build kit to keep you spinning mile after mile, ripping turn after turn and boosting off every root in sight.

    The tick box exercise is complete: boost axles, threaded BB, ISCG 05 tabs and stealth dropper routing. There’s just one big blank space remaining: a description of how you’re going to ride it…

  • Head Angle: 64˚Static
  • Effective Seat Angle: 74˚
  • Chain stay length: 425mm
  • Seat post: 31.6mm
  • Rear Axle: Ragley 12mm x 148mm Thru-Axle
  • BB Shell: 73mm BSA
  • Wheel Size: 27.5”
  • Max Tyre Size: 2.6”
  • ISCG 05 Tabs
  • 5 Year Warranty and lifetime crash replacement
  •  
    Marley

    100806895 - Marley 1_01
     
    100806880 - Marley 2_01
     
    The Marley is a modern classic with the previous iteration landing a whole heap of awards and accolades. The new bike retains the same DNA but updates to the boost axle ‘standard’ and the same geometry revisions as its steel counterpart, the Piglet.

    The Marley was created to bring high-end features, geometry and ride feel to a lower price point. A fun and engaging ride for an all-day loop, joining the local shop ride, playing in the woods or a long weekend at a trail centre.

    Proof that you don’t need to break the bank to get the most out of mountain biking, both Marley builds are dripping with choice components so you can keep shredding month-after-month, year-after-year.

  • Head Angle: 65.5˚Static
  • Effective Seat Angle: 74˚
  • Chain stay length: 425mm
  • Rear Axle: Ragley 12mm x 148mm Thru-Axle
  • BB Shell: 73mm BSA
  • Wheel Size: 27.5”
  • Max Tyre Size: 2.6”
  • ISCG 05 Tabs
  • 5 Year Warranty and lifetime crash replacement
  •  
    Big Al

    100806925 - Big Al_01
     
    The Big Al puts a middle finger up to those who think the cutting-edge geometry of their range topping model has no place at this price point. The Big Al shares the same modern angles as the Big Wig, but on a more price sensitive build kit and a lighter weight alloy frame.

    Whether you want something out of the box to ride the socks off, or a frame you can build into something a little bit special, the Big Al is a blank canvass for your riding imagination. Well-mannered as a stable trail/XC bike but slack enough for the most demanding of trails, there is no stopping this cable 29-inch beauty, go forth and find your own fun…

  • Head Angle: 65˚Static
  • Effective Seat Angle: 74˚
  • Chain stay length: 435mm
  • Rear Axle: Ragley 12mm x 148mm Thru-Axle
  • BB Shell: 73mm BSA
  • Wheel Size: 29”
  • Max Tyre Size: 2.5”
  • ISCG 05 Tabs
  • 5 Year Warranty and lifetime crash replacement
  •  
    Trig

    100806993 - Trig Adventure_01
     
    100806978 - Trig Gravel_01
     
    The Trig marks Ragley’s return to the world of curly handlebars (remember the Rodwell and Cragg Vale?).

    The gravel bandwagon has split into more niches than experimental jazz, but our jam is straightforward; no flurries of nonsense here.

    Triple butted 4130 Chromoly steel tubing that’s lively and comfortable; supple enough to provide comfort on rougher rides but stiff and engaging enough to make you grin when you push harder.

    Want versatility? The Trig frameset features a 44mm headtube, 142×12 and 15mm axles, multiple bottle cage mounts and tyre clearance to run 700/650 XC/gravel/adventure/anything tyres.

    We have two builds available to keep the majority happy; 650b ‘adventure’ bike or 700c commuter/gravel/winter road/anything bike.

    We don’t want to pigeon hole too much, you choose. And if we’ve got it wrong for the way you ride, the frameset is available too.

  • Head Angle: 70˚Static
  • Effective Seat Angle: 74˚
  • Chain stay length: 425mm
  • Seat post: 27.2mm
  • Rear Axle: Ragley 12mm x 142mm Thru-Axle
  • BB Shell: 68mm BSA
  • Headset: ZS44/28.6 | ZS44/40
  • Max Tyre Size: 700x40c/27.5×2.1”
  • BB Drop: -66mm
  • Rack & Fender mounts
  • 5 Year Warranty and lifetime crash replacement

    Ragley Demo fleet to appear at Hit The North

    We’re delighted to announce our demo fleet will be taken along to join in the fun at this February’s Hit the North 2.5 Race. Team JMC/Ragley riders, Dave and Jason will be whipping around the course on their TD-1s and will (probably) be delighted to talk about their bikes. What’s Hit the North I’ve been […]

    The Color Purple

    A return visit to the northern Lakes has been on the cards for a while. And today was the perfect day.  Pour yourself a cuppa and open the nobnobs - there's a few photos coming up! We parked at the back of the church hall in Threlkeld, with a promise of tea and cakes...

    High Street

    No - not shopping - that hill in the Lakes! There's more than one way to the High Street, this time we're coming from the south. It all starts easily enough, just a few kilometres of tick infested bracken to contend with. The route takes us past Dubbs Reservoir, where...

    Mary Towneley

    We've a lot to thank her for. Following her unstinting efforts to improve access for horses, we have the loop running from our doorstep around the southern Pennines. Sadly, she didn't make it to the opening - but it's some memorial! It's twelve weeks since I was...

    Lee Quarry

    I know you've all been clamouring for a shot of Shaman's arse, so here it is! Just like the old days! This is up on the moor, between Brittania and Lee Quarries. It's just above Bacup - a place that makes me feel a little nervous. Did you know that all the Bacup...

    New kid in town

    It's always nice when someone shows you their local trails. And it's always nice to show someone your local trails. But which is best?  There's only one way to find out!  Fight! I digress.  The Sleeve brought his chum round on Saturday and there's only one place to...

    The Training Ride

    We all have one don't we?  The route from the back door that has no excuse, no cause for prevarication, no reason not to ride.  Hard enough to make your heart bang, tricky enough to remind yourself what the word technical means, long enough to give you a glow of smug...

    Holcombe 8

    I never fancy going out when it's cold. But once I'm out - it's usually worth it.And it was pretty cold this morning - around -2 according to our thermometer. I was toasty on the climb up to the tower, but once on the top you could feel the chill in the air. But there...

    Xmas Garburn

    You need to get out at Christmas.  Escape from the routine of slothfulness and gluttony and blow the cobwebs away. Where better than the Lakes? The forecast was good and the reality even better.  Bright sunshine from a sun at a blindingly low angle leaving a pattern...

    Building a website has never been so fun.
