Voodoo – tell me about them
I have the one of the first imported into the UK. A 1995/6 (I think) steel Hoodoo, still handbuilt in USA back then, I like to think by Joe jimself 8)Posted 6 years ago
Lovely bike, currently use it as my commuter (with drop bars and road chainset fitted) but am converting back to MTB duties at the moment and considering having disc tabs retro fitted (possibly by Mercian framebuilders in Derby) and a respray.
Been going strong for all those years, started rigid and cantilever brakes, has had Magura rim brakes and Vee’s, 140 forks on it and everything in between, it seems to work whatever I do to it
Sadly Voodoo been vastly under-rated for years since sold at Halfords, but nice adaptable designs and good value, unfortunately the best frames never seem to see UK shores unless privately importedYetimanMember
My old hardtail was a Voodoo Bizango. I had planned to buy a Kona Explosif but the new frames were late coming in, however the shop had just stripped the ex-demo Voodoo and offered me it at a knock down price. It was a great steel frame that built up into a lovely riding bike with 120mm bombers. Wish I’d kept it 🙁Posted 6 years agoiain1775Subscriber
This was when I first did it, now has a shorter, higher stem to get drops in a better position. Doesnt maybe look the best but it does me for the commute to work, but next week its going back to an MTB either with the Pace rigid forks or Fox F80’s not sure which yetPosted 6 years agoBernaardMember
My boss had his bike stolen, so he dragged my into a couple of Halfruads in the area.
One had an original steel Wanga marked up as a alloy frame @£999
With the new range behind it with the top price @£349????
In another store they had the new line up priced from £349-£749 for the same line up of bikes. 🙄Posted 6 years ago
