BikeRide finds and shows you the best prices of the bikes you want to buy. Prices constantly change and it’s impossible to compare them all yourself.

We search for prices on over 120 bike retailers to guarantee that we find the lowest prices – to save you time and money.

It’s a promise we stand behind: If you find a lower price on a bike elsewhere, we will sell it to you for 10% less. For example, if you find a bike for $480 that we have listed at $500, we will offer you to buy it for $432 through BikeRide. The bike must be the same color and size, sold in the US and not include the use of a coupon.

If you find a lower price, email us at [email protected] with documentation of the price. We’re committed to making sure that the cost of a bike does not keep you from cycling!

Summary of Reviews

We have read all expert and user reviews on the Ragley Piglet. In summary, this is what cyclists think.

11 reasons to buy

  • The Ragley Piglet has a quality triple-butted Chromoly steel frame.
  • A threaded bottom bracket is easy to maintain on the bike.
  • Ragley includes chain guide tabs to help stabilize the chain through rough terrain on the Piglet.
  • The SRAM NX drivetrain gives riders a wide gear range for tackling steep climbs on the trail.
  • Maxxis Minion DHR/DHF tires provide excellent traction to riders in wet and dry conditions on the Piglet.
  • The bike comes tubeless-ready. Running tubeless tires allows riders the ability to run lower tire pressures, reducing the impact felt on rough trails.
  • Experts found the 130mm RockShox Revelation fork dampened trail chatter and impacts over trail obstacles.
  • This hardtail bike fits in the budget of many riders looking for a mountain bike. It is not extremely expensive.
  • The hydraulic disc brakes are extremely responsive on the Piglet.
  • Aggressive geometry and a stiff frame make the Piglet an efficient climber.
  • The Brand-X dropper post has internal routing. Users found this dropper worked well.

3 reasons not to buy

  • The low stance of the bike limits the Ragley Piglet’s descending ability. Upgrading to higher rise bars would allow riders to descend with greater confidence.
  • The 27.5" tires on the Ragley Piglet do not smooth out trail chatter as well as a 29" setup would, according to experts.
  • Riders found the long 50mm stem and low bars were not comfortable at slower cruising speeds.

Bottom line

The Ragley Piglet is an aggressive hardtail trail bike. It has hydraulic disc brakes and a wide gear range with its SRAM NX drivetrain. The 27.5" tires are set-up tubeless-ready, which dampens some trail chatter but not as much as 29” wheels would. The RockShox Revelation fork offers 130mm of travel up front. This smooths out one’s ride over trail obstacles. The bike's geometry is great for climbing but descending may not be the most comfortable with the low rise handlebars.
