Joe Murray – STW Issue 77 – What a job!
After reading the article in the new magazine, i really believe that Joe has the coolest job in the world
Shimano send him loads of prototypes, he tests them, provides feedback, and they refine the design accordingly
Could there be a more satisfying job out there?
Also a fascinating article, purely for the information about how Shimano design, prototype, test & manufacture their equipment – a vital product most of us will have used at some point, or some of us depend on every time we jump on a bike

Think it basically depends how old the design of your Voodoo is. Older ones were “proper Voodoo” frames built up to Halfords’ spec.
Sorry Northwind but my ‘older’ (read 1995/6 and first batch into the UK frame number 0037) was not built up to Halfords spec, but handbuilt in USA then built to my own spec, which back then meant rigid forks and early V brakes, by sShockwave in Nottingham, not Halfords 😉 (I know what your saying though)
Second Joe Murray being a top bloke, emailed Voodoo last year to ask about replacement frame stickers, got sent some free of charge with a lovely note, signed by Joe apologising that he didn’t have a full set and didnt know the exact paint code but was glad the bike was still going strong 🙂
I owe a huge debt to Mr Murray, his bikes have given me nearly 18 years of huge fun, thought it was a brilliant article
(btw 2 sets of xtr trail pedals, both going fine, no bearing issues in either over last 12/15 months)Posted 5 years ago
