This press release on Pinkbike about Ragley’s 2017 line contains an explanation of Ragley’s geometry.
I like Pinkbike, and Ragley strikes me as a cool company that makes awesome bikes. That said, we’re hearing similar geometry claims more and more, and I don’t think they all make sense.
Hi Lee, two more questions about the stumpjumper fsr 6 fattie, What do you think of the Ohlin shocks? and do you think it would be a good enduro bike I am planning on tackling a few enduro races, I currently have the camber with a 130 mm rockshox pike on the front and love this bike but not sure it can handle enduro racing.
You stopped using Strava three years ago because it brought out your crazy. But today, after four hours teaching and riding, you turn on Strava to time the climb.
I’ve been riding plus tires all season on a Specialized Fuse and Stumpjumper 6Fattie. Both bikes came with 27.5×3” Purgatory front and Ground Control rear tires, all in the lightweight Control casing. Both bikes are super capable and fun to ride.
Last weekend I rode the new Specialized Purgatory 27.5×3 GRID tires on both ends of my Stumpy. WHOA.
In the post Two rides on a Specialized Fuse Expert 6Fattie Ramses asked “Camber Comp or Fuse Expert?”
Recently inherited an Original Specialized P1.
Just out of curiosity did you keep yours? Are they worth keeping if one was upgraded with nicer components for their time?
Would it be worth going all out and upgrading to newer/lighter/stronger more today’s components?
The one we have the “naked lady” is still pretty cherry while everything else has since rubbed off. Wasn’t at all ridden hard, too.
Thanks for your time,
I was recently setting up one of my clients, a 5’4” female, and her optimal bar width was narrower than the minimum width marked on her Spank Oozy 760 Vibrocore handlebar.
Rather than guess, I asked Mike Dutton, sales director at Spank, whether it’s safe to cut narrower than the “max cut” mark on the bar.
Where is the ideal place to put the pedal under my foot? Should it be more under the ball of my foot or in the middle of my arch?
How well does the Fuse manual and bunny hop? I ride a Chromag 26” Hard tail. It is a great bike to mix in some trials type moves. The down side is the 27.2 dropper seat post options. The Fuse looks like the best of both worlds with the traction it has.
I have the same Stumpjumper Expert 2012 you have. Mine has original shocks and has carbon Roval rims Been riding a 2.3 Ground Control front and 2.1 Captain rear. I have a 2.4 Purgatory I could put on front and move the Ground Control to rear.
My friends have 27.5 Nomads etc. We ride freeride. Could get Maxxis DHR front and DHR rear. Is that a good setup for my Stumpjumper 29? Roots and freeride with dry hardpack and loose pine needles.
Riding in Hawaii. Whats the best thing to upgrade this bike in tire handling to 2016 standards? Thanks, Jason
