wouldnt it stress the headtube?
who cares, huck it!
I doubt anyone who would ride that could break anything let alone the headtube off it.
its a pretty serious bike setup
its gonna huck down whistler man
do i need to masking tap the headtube to prevent it from breaking?
I know this great paper mache recipe to fill the gap between the steerer and headtube with to keep that set up from wiggling around while you're doing your epic hux.
Try it out, let us know how it goes.
In Soviet Russia, headtube breaks you!!!
i was contemplating putting a dual crown fox 40
Maybe you can ride it with the fork backwards to even the angle?
sell the 40 and get a better frame
RedBull Rampage worthy!!!...........in 2000
i have a ragley blue pig, love it! its pleeenty slack with a 140 fork, that seems like overkill chopper territory my man. its got a 1.5 ht so it should support it, but your handling is gonna suffer. you may want to email brant email@example.com if you need further guidance, he is a wise man. have fun!
brant just replied.
the bike would handle like crap if the fork is running at 180mm
It's too much, unless you want to go to a Chopper Convention. Can't you drop those forks down to 160mm or 150mm??
180mm on a hardtail. Was this ever a serious question?!
If you're serious about a Ragley w/ a 180mm, the Bagger 288 is made to handle it. Spec'd for a 160mm fork, but will handle a 180.
Although I'm a fan of burly hardtails, 180 seems a bit much.
Heres the crazy bike.
Don't really feel much difference at 180mm, but the front felt really heavy.
it really seems to me that the 140 and 180mm pictures are identical.
lol 180 is minimum for a proper fr hardtail...
Just ride this thing until it fall apart then get a real hardtail, hehe
Do you have enough flip flops?
flip flop, that what the chopper steering is gonna be like.
no way man the cranks moved.
I was wondering why this thread is still going! Anyway, they really do look the same- maybe he posted two 180mm pics on accident? Pretty sure the handlebar is on the door latch in both pics...
5 minutes of my life wasted.....
sorry i wasted your time
