Ragley Big Al 2019


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 29er.
