Different strokes though...I'd still luv to have me a phatbyke.


Excellent addition to the thread though...though I don't know the frame numbers yet. Do you know the CS length and HA?
I agree, somewhere around 2 - 2.4 work best for me on trails, still I'd love to try this bike out, though. I think this bike is meant for trails or areas that are less groomed, but where the adventurous person might still want to ride.

Shoot, don't know the numbers. And I was just looking at the Surly 2013 catalog the other day!

Dug up a picture of my old Komodo. Super fun. Wish it was the right size. Might also make for an interesting 650b experiment.

Does anybody own or has anyone ridden a ragley piglet? Interested in another long travel hardtail, have most of the parts, and the price is right. Thoughts?

My bike is pretty beefy, or maybe its just because I'm used to road bikes.
