Blue Pig

Sorry for the long wait...
For your viewing pleasure... the BLUE PIG

Let's get down to the details on this piglet... (click to enlarge) Note - please pardon the dust (some of it is cat hair), and the glare on some shots - really hard to get it right, but hey, we try! :)


3 finger chainstays - MASSIVE clearance, can comfortably fit a 2.5 (as with the Ragley Ti and the mmmBop)


Chainstay mount for the BB - yes, faced to ensure a nice consistent to ensure aperfectly flat alignment surface for your disc brake

Check out the head tube gusset... SOLID


Seatstay brace - nice welds! (ignore the cat hair, please)

random shots of various weld points - very clean! The line in the 3rd shot is the factory sticker on the chainstay...

Blue pigs are available in Black and Skwosh (Orange)... Skwosh pics below...

More Blue Pig info here

And this is what happens when you actually build one with Nuke Proof and Ragley components...
(Ragley Logo Saddle - CrMo, Ragley Logo LockOn Grips, Nuke Proof Generator All Mountain Wheelset)



Clean bike pics are nice, I guess... I'd rather let the pig out to play in the mud, though...

mmmBop in action!

Here's a video of a blue mmmBop, best to watch it in full screen mode!

My favorite part is around 3:40, pay close attention to how much the fork moves and how the rear wheel behaves when it hits the same area that causes the fork to compress... beautiful!

I just happen to have a blue mmmBop and a Lyrik lying around.... hmmm....

Frames have landed.... yes, blue pigs can fly.

Click the pics for some nice detail. You may have to tilt your head, I wanna make sure you're paying attention! :)

Let's mix it up a bit.


Two flavors. Non-photoshopped, i'm not computer-literate enough to know how to use that stuff. Sorry, light kept changing throughout the shoot, but hey, we tried :) The shade of Blue is very accurate, but the Green is harder to capture... the shade is very close to the kawasaki green made famous by Santa Cruz Bicycles (my other, other ride) - needless to say, if you want the green, don't worry, it's a REALLY nice shade of green according to the few who've seen it up close.


I'm pretty impressed, it's hard enough to buy a frame with the head tube faced...

... and these frames have BOTH the bottom bracket AND the disc brake mounts faced, too! Taking off all that excess paint allows a consistently flat surface to mount your headset, bottom bracket and disc brake adaptor.


Some overall detail shots now...



Just look at how much the light was changing! Just remember, first two pics are the most accurate color-wise! :)

Now on to some Ti goodness...

Seatstay Bridge... nice welds!

Downtube Sticker

Disc brake mount, left chainstay

Some angled shots of the right chainstay - the three finger design gives LOTS of clearance!

Some profile shots...

Detailed Ti info here

My partner seems to like it...

now she's going to look for some parts to build it with...

WHAT??? Where's the Blue Pig?

Still recovering from the swine flu... come back in a few days :) (EDIT - here's the Blue Pig!)
