    Go figure, I see the coupon code after the fact! Still waiting for mine to arrive. Scheduled to be delivered this Friday, 12/9! Two weeks to the day! Personally, I think this is not the normal "Wicked Fast" shipping we normally see with HNR. None the less, $366 is still a good deal. Once frame arrives, I can start building. Will have to trim brake lines down some. New post arrived as did my new red seat post clamp. Unfortunately, my cranks won't be back from Crazy8 until some time next week (hopefully). Waiting SUCKS!!!!!!

    1SPD....Huck will most likely issue a credit or even a refund of the difference.....especially since you are still within the 30 Day return window...... Never hurts to ask.

    Hmmm, interesting. Well, you gave it a shot anyway. I would think they would respond like most retailers and say they won't match it or that it needed to be used with the original purchase...

    Still waiting for mine to show up. At the 5 day mark I contacted them because the order status had not changed. The package hadn't even left their facility yet! They upgraded the shipping and it still took another two days before it shipped out via standard UPS ground! It is now scheduled to be delivered tomorrow according to the tracking info. That will be 2 weeks from the date of order which oddly enough is the same amount of time the econo shipping was quoted to take....what a cluster F#$*!



    Even though they upgraded my shipping, it took a week before it even left their place. The shipping was upgraded about 5 days after the purchase and then it took another two days before it left via standard ground UPS. Hmm....how the hell is that an upgrade? Due in tomorrow, two weeks after being ordered...which I might add is what they say it takes for their econo shipping! What a cluster.

    I am still waiting for my Bander to ship, I ordered it last Thursday. So much for "ships wicked fast". Oh well, I am sure it will be worth the wait.

    Well I got an update that it arrived at the shipping facility which means it will be out for delivery tomorrow. Looks like I will get to build it up over the weekend but my cranks won't be back until early next week at best.

    Its HERE!

    Well, it finally made it. Actually the frame showed up yesterday and I got as much of it together as I could but without a crank it wasn't wuite done. But today while putting up Christmas lights outside the white Santa slay (USPS truck) pulled up with you guessed it, my cranks! Lights got done a little quicker and back to work on the bike. Well, I had just finished trimming the brake lines and what not prior to dealing with the lights.

    So, I must admit that I was a little annoyed when I put the frame on the scale. Vassago lists the weight as 4.6 lbs for the 16" frame. My scale shows it as 5.1 lbs. Add in the longer 400mm seat post, a heavier seat post clamp and now the complete bike as pictured weighs in at 21.88 lbs. Basically it gained .3 lbs. I plan on swapping out my barends for my KCNC's which will drop around 70 grams and another 30 grams for my seat when I put the carbon SLR back on. I will get another half pound of my tires when the summer tires go back on. Even with all of that I will still be in the low 20.somthing range. Oh well.

    Haven't been out on it yet but plan on going for a ride some time tomarrow. Hopefully all holds up and the ride is as smooth as everyone says it is.

    Didn't it come with a seat post collar? My Bander frame finally shipped and is suppose to be here at the end of next week. I'll need to order a collar if it doesn't come with one. The Vassago website says one is included as well as the frame being faced and chased so I hadn't given it a thought.

    Yes, it did come with a clamp. Weight of it is 20g. I had ordered another one just because I got mixed responses to the same question.

    Weight of bike as pictured is 21.88. I suspect that I can get it back down into 20 something by swapping out my seat and barends. When spring rolls around the race tires will go back on and it should come in at low 20.something. But I'm happy with it at this point and am not too stressed about dropping much more weight out of it. I'm sure it will ride great which is the most important thing.

    For those of you who ordered a Jabberwocky from Huck and Roll, did the frame come with a seat clamp?

    Nice build 1SPD. My build is similar to yours. Not sure what it weights but my guess would be around 21-22 lbs. I ordered my Wocky and rigid fork on 11/25. Got the fork on 12/2 and the frame on 12/8. Got my first real ride in 12/10. What a freaking machine. I LOVE this thing. As you can see on my sig, i have some pretty nice ride but i have to say "SIR" baby. It's nimble in the twisty, stable on the down hill, and turn like it's F1 car. WOW! What they say about "sitting in the bike instead of on the bike" is real.

    Oh, the Wocky comes w/ the seat clamp.

    Well got the first ride in on it today and I would say that it was quite exciting. Unfortunatly the trails were muddy due to some freezing temperatures at night. But the good thing is that when I hopped on it, nothing felt odd to me. I mean, I expected to have to get used to something but that was not the case at all. Now I want to call out from work tomorrow so I can go ride again!

    Same here. Coming from a 26HT, this bike felt comfy from the get go. Only thing I had to get dialed in was the rigid fork, but I expected that. After few rides in I think I can say I finally found my zone. This thing is a blast to ride, climbing or descending, esp climbing!

    Oh that's nice. I love the green color but HnR didn't have it.

    I got a ride today w/ my brother. He's a avid biker like myself and have many nice bikes like mine. We are the same size so i told him to try my Wocky. Guess what? He ordered the frame and fork an hour after we finished our little ride.

    Please stop, I need another bike like I need a hole in the head. But I had a Vassago, got rid of it and missed it ever since. I am very close to picking up another one before the HnR sale ends....

    hehe for the $, you can't beat this deal. Go for it! I'm in love with this bike. The problem will be i won't be able to ride it for at least three because i'm having my my ACL replace and meniscus repair Thursday.

    got some pics

    So i finally got a chance to take a couple of pictures and weight it.
    20.68 lbs...All the parts came from my parts bin so i wasn't consciously trying to be a WW but i'm glad it came in at ~20lbs

    Wheels...DT240+Crest rim+Rocket Ron and Ikon both tubeless
    Brakes...Elixir R 140R 160F

    this bike is so simple to build but it's my favorite to ride.

    Hell, I wish my parts bin looked like that! Your wheels must really be offsetting the fork on the bike as far as weight is concerned. To come in at 20 lbs with the steel fork is really good. Unfortunately, I can't really get away with riding my more racey lighter tires year round out here and the weight of my wheels alone doesn't help me much...but I digress. Nice build!

    I think I am at a point where it isn't worth the money to replace parts in an effort to shave 10 grams here and there. I mean, it would cost me another $130+ for bars, another $100 for a stem, and over $400 to rebuild my wheels (using my existing hubs). Tires I will be doing again however as that will cut out about 1/2 lb.

    I fully agree! It is in the back of my car right now and I plan on leaving work at 2 today to go ride! On a side note, I had to go out to one of my other facilities this morning and happened to go past where a new section of trail was cut over the summer. I have ridden it many times now but you always had to jump out on a road to get over to it. Today I noticed that it looks like the connector has now been cut so I know exactly where I am headed!!!

    The black is my weight weenish bike, I'll probably run Flows with either the RR 2.4 or Maxxis Ikon which will bring the bike down to about 22lbs. It's geared at 32/19 I plan to ride this bike on faster terrain.

    I plan to have the Mohave bike will be my cruiser geared at 32/20 and run velocity P35 and RR 2.4 I plan to use that one for longer rides 20+ miles and more all mountain terrain.

    It's alway good to have a back up in case one goes down. I've been really happy with the setup of the first bike and the Huck n Roll sale helped convince me to get another one.

    Can these frames run a 120mm fork, 1x9, and a 2.4 Ardent?

    80mm is recommended. I run a 100mm but I would got higher. No reason to.

    1x9 only if you run full housing and zip ties to the rear.

    2.4 Ardents will be a tight fit since the knobs extent past the tire casing. I am running 2.4 RR and they are about the limit with about 1/2-1 inch clearance on each side.

    Any wider I think it wouldn't fit. Luckily the knobs on the 2.4 RR don't extend past the tire casing walls so there's just enough room for the tire to move laterally without rubbing the frame.

    Thanks trucker. The black friday sale was just too tempting for me. I ended up selling my monocog flight and building another jabber. Man I love the way the jabber feels.

    I Liked the ODIS Pitchfork a lot, but I had it on a different steel frame(GT Peace 9r). It was certainly smooth & compliant with a 2.4 RR. Only riden the Niner carbon a couple times. I really like the lightness of the front end, easy to pick up over rocks and roots. Still need to get more hours on it...so far it's pretty sweet.

    Cranks?

But today while putting up Christmas lights outside the white Santa slay (USPS truck) pulled up with you guessed it, my cranks! Lights got done a little quicker and back to work on the bike. Well, I had just finished trimming the brake lines and what not prior to dealing with the lights.

    So, I must admit that I was a little annoyed when I put the frame on the scale. Vassago lists the weight as 4.6 lbs for the 16" frame. My scale shows it as 5.1 lbs. Add in the longer 400mm seat post, a heavier seat post clamp and now the complete bike as pictured weighs in at 21.88 lbs. Basically it gained .3 lbs. I plan on swapping out my barends for my KCNC's which will drop around 70 grams and another 30 grams for my seat when I put the carbon SLR back on. I will get another half pound of my tires when the summer tires go back on. Even with all of that I will still be in the low 20.somthing range. Oh well.

    Haven't been out on it yet but plan on going for a ride some time tomarrow. Hopefully all holds up and the ride is as smooth as everyone says it is.
    What cranks are on that? Like the stealthy black. Have the same frame coming.

    Cranks are modded XTR M960 that were ceramic coated in matte black by ceramikoat.com Same cranks I had on the old bike but sent them back to him (Crazy8-he's a member on here) and had them recoated in a different color. Couldn't be happier! You can buy the cranks directly from him this way as well.

    45" with rear wheel about 2/3's back in slider. Running a Niner carbon fork. Don't think you can get it down to 43"?? Hope this helps.

    wheelbase

    Thanks for the responses. Would it be too much to ask for one more measurement? The length from he bb center to the front axle center. I am close to getting a cutom frame but the jabber is soooooo close to what i want? Thanks so much!

    Captain Bob just pull the trigger you'll forget about all those measurements when you get it on the trail, this frame is not your run of the mill 29er. If it helps I'm 6'0 and my jabber is an 18 and it fits perfect with a 70mm stem. Good luck.

    got the call from my local frame builder bro and he finished repairing the two small cracks I had on my Jabber. One on the back of the seat tube BB shell weld and the other on the drive side chainstay BB weld. Stripped the paint back around five inches out from the BB shell on the seat and chain stays It has been down for over eight months and may soon be resurrected back into my SS. Rattle can paint job and back to building!

    Is the Jabberwocky considered a slow handling bike?

    I'm looking at it and the Origin 8 Scout. The Scount has a shorter TT. I'm looking for a bike that's fairly fast around tight twisty sections.

    The jabberwocky is only as slow as the rider!

    But for super slow tight handling, It can be a little difficult. You kinda have to overseer a lot to get it moving around on super slow s track < 3mph.

    I still love the handling. I have mine set up with a 70mm stem and its snappy as hell above 10mph.

    +2 on what he said. I haven't ridden the O8 Scout (I have their CX frame\bike),but compared to the Redline d440 it replaced,my one-size-larger Jabber feels noticably quicker,if that helps

    I have a 445mm fork on mine and I must say, its steering is twitchy. Most would hate it but I like it this way and I think I will be struggling for a while if/when I ever swap out my fork for say a 460-470mm version (ie a Niner)

    The most recent incarnation of mine. Sort of, the squishy fork is back on the bike while I sell my two rigid forks. Salsa fork rides great, but axle to crown is too short. Ritchey fork it too stiff for my taste, but I like the axle to crown. Soul Cycles make a steel fork that fits the bill.
