    Yes, matching black ODIS of course.

    Red King headset and Salsa seat collar for accents so far, and lots of slightly used but very nice parts for the build.

    I am looking forward to trying the full wetcat effect...both of my previous 29ers had the typical 72-deg head angle and riding out-of-saddle-SS a lot I always feel like I am right on top of the front wheel. Hoping to feel a little more behind the wheel without things getting too sluggish.

    I really have no desire for it to handle like a 26er. If I liked the way 26ers handled better, I would not ride 29ers.

    for some reason I always liked the white vassagos.

    I have a metallic muted green / gun metal color. I like it, but its pretty low key. I think my next one will be a brighter color or white.

    It isn't a Jabberwocky but it's a Vassago none the less. It's interesting how the Jabberwocky gets so much more talk time than the Bandersnatch.

    It had some 38mm cross tires on it at the time for dirt road spring training rides, it now wears 2.3 Exi's. And the flats/clipless come and go depending on the ride and time of year.

    I think thats because the jabber can be SS or geared. i ride my jabber as a 1x9


    Is that silver? or white with an odd camera white balance?

    thanks - yeah, I thought the balck and red was pretty creative till I saw this thread and realized it's not "that" creative :-)

    Either that or amazing minds think alike :-)

    I really liked the SOMA 4one5 I had before this, but I freakin love this bike!!

    CycleJunk,

    I know you had a SIR Niner because I bought it from you. So far, the best bike ever. So it looks like you ended up with another SS. What didn't you like about the SIR? How do you compare it to the Jabber?

    It is almost like you had a similar bike as your Jabber, sold it and back on a similar build.

    just curious...

    NKrax- she's beautiful, nice build as well. As MattKHS said she is way to clean, now go get her dirty!

    Quick question... Is anyone out there trying mountain drops on one of these. I've recently become curious about this mountain drop idea but I'm not sure if it'd work. I don't really know why I just can't picture them on my bike.

    Anyone tried it?
