    Yup - it is a large frame (20"). I went with the black frame and black Odis fork. The headset and bb are red Chris King's. I really like the black base with red highlights - it looks pretty cool in person - at least to me!

    We had a big lake effect snow storm earlier, or else I would have taken some shots of it outside.

    cool man. Enjoy the ride. I rode mine for over three years and really enjoyed the ride.I developed a small crack on the seat tube BB weld. I had it repaired by a builder friend and I'm now having it powdercoated. I will rebuild it back up and ride it some more.

    I'm not sure what a "chop" is.
    What you are seeing on the cable is the end of the bend where it goes to the lever.

    My 20" mojave showed up today, the rest of the parts should be here tomorrow!

    The tubing on this thing is tiny, hope it'll hold 220lbs up!

    Dear Warwagon,

    I have the same weight dilemma, 6'4" 220lbs. I want a 22" Mojave but concerned about the same thing. Please let me know your experience. Thanks!

    I'm specing components for new black jabber...

    Do the stickers come pre-applied? I notice that there are different color stickers on the same color of frame so they could be optional or from different years.

    Also, any comments on running a 100mm reba? I'd prefer a slacker headangle anyway but am wondering about the raised bb height.

    I can't say much about the shock but I can tell you that the decals are pre-applied and you don't have an option as to the color you get. Mine are white on black and they are actually an off white color. I have seen a grey on black which imo looks the best. Sorta that stealth look if you will. I think that is the older frame though, maybe an 00-10' model.

    Too funny! I just went and scrolled back thru the thread and found this! I know exactly where this pic was taken! I remember passing the skulls and sorta giggling! Love the new trail extension as well as the newer section cut by the mill! Nice Jabber. I will have my eye out for you when the trails "open" back up.

    Thanks. I was hoping it was like my transition transAM which came with stickers to choose from. I may have to de-sticker the jabberwocky. The tan-on-black pictured at hucknroll isn't as cool as that gray-on-black.

    Destickering may mean repainting as it is clear coated over! I thought about having a friend of mine that owns and autobody shop shoot mine with a layer of tinted clear or something, that or some sort of frame saver tape that is tinted...at least that was the thought process. Instead I tend to just ride it at this point and don't worry about it much any more.

    well......let's say small swatch color charts are tough to go by but.....
    It came out pretty good I think. In person it looks a tad bit darker than the photo shows!
    The flash and the I phone don't do justice.
    The quality of the paint job turned out great.

    Question... where to buy the clips that hold the brakeline to the frame? I lost one earlier and I'd rather get few of those (if possible) than using zip ties. Thanks.

    If I remember correctly the powder caters have some sort of tape they can mask with that isn't affected by the heat when baked.

    Not sure how the powder coater handles it but my frame builder friend reamed/faced and chased the BB/Seat tube and head tube so it looks and feels like new!

    Must say that I loved how it rode, a lot smoother than a aluminum hard tail. The gearing 32/21 was perfect for climbing on our local trail, just ran out of gear a tad quick on the flats.

    Dear Jabberwocky owners, I bought a Jabber frame and Odis fork and I am stoked! Not so crazy bout the company, but the frame is spot on! Can I start by asking for a crankset suggestion for SS only? I have a SRAM Truvativ Stylo on a different bike that I hope to transfer, but unsure if it will fit. I will be transferring many parts but getting a new wheelset American Classic, and a Thomson Seatpost. Soon I will be posting pics!

    Can anyone advise me on Tire clearance for the Jabber frame and Odis fork? Website says clearance for muddy 2.3's, Id guess that is the rear, but I have read here someone posted 2.4's on the front with the Odis. This would be the ideal set up for me if someone can confirm. Thanks Vassago friends

    Odis

    I've had both Schwalbe RR 2.4 & WTB Weirwolf 2.55 tires on my ODIS front end with no issues.

    I was riding a 2.2 Wolverine on the rear with the wheel fairly closed to being slammed in the dropout. When I pulled the wheel on Thursday to swap my tires out I noticed all sorts of nice scratches on the insides of the seat and chainstays from where mud and all sorts of crap was rubbing. I suspect 2.3's work provided your wheel is further back in the drop out.

    As far as the front goes I would think you could go considerably larger as mentioned above.

    Thanks 1SPD, i plan on chopping and polishing it just waiting on my new ring (HBC). I really like the way the ceramic coat finish looks. I might go that route if I dont like the polished look.

    I borrowed a longer travel short chainstay/wheelbase steel hardtail yesterday for my ride.

    It totally reminded me of how much I take my jabberwocky for granted. Im still head over heels for my j-wok! Its rides like a dream.

    You know the Jabber is a great riding bike in general. I can say that it feels a little slower in the twisties due to the longer wheel base (yes, I have my rear almost slammed) but other than that I am quite happy. I am still quesitoning whether or not I should have gone with the medium rather than a small frame though.

    I have no idea what my next frame will be (largely a financial issue) but I do believe that it will have some large shoes to fill.

    Same ting' mon! Ive been on my Jabber 2 weeks and I love it! I do have to disagree with the handling I have more confidence than ever on this bike and I push hard into the corners. I am 6'5" and my 22" frame just soaks it up. I like the long wheelbase.

    I'm not saying that I can't carve it up mind you. I do have a shorter fork on my bike which makes things steer a little quicker which honestly has probably helped me out more. I do love the bike but can say that it just isn't as flickable as my old 26er and I still can't manual this thing. (not that the seat height is helping much with that either)

    Haha I gave up on anything "flickable" when I bought my first 29er. I have been interested in getting another 26'er for that purpose. I try to roll almost everything on my 9'er unless I hit something with enough speed to get it off the ground. In my mind its like the station wagon from National Lampoons vacation getting airborne!

    I'm 6"1 and ride a medium which fits me perfect (even though my seatpost sticks way out of the frame), the bike seems very flickable to me and this thing rigid can do twice as much stuff as my old 26er S-Works Hardtail. My Salsa Maxle (20mm thru axle) and 2.5 WTB Dissent in the front goes over and down most anything, at what seems to me, pretty fast.

    I love the geo on the bike and if Vassago never comes back I'll be saving the specs on the geo and going custom for my ext bike.

    Going back to 26ers is like telling your wife you were wrong about something. You just don't do it!!

    I have had a difficult time with my sliders, I am a clyde, had a couple issues with my wheel sliding forward braking and I tried stuffing a 2.3 in the back and it rubs. I am going to add a couple links to my chain and move the hub back a bit see how that does.

    You need a skewer with an internal Cam. Not external. I have tried 3 or 4. Including some from mavic and salsa. The only one that is strong enough to prevent b'brake jack' has been an old Shimano XT.

    vassago said they would sell a replacement wheel thumb holder, but never did last i saw. the newer jabbers dont have the issue.

    My Jabber is brand new, and I had Shimano XT hubs on my old bike wheelset. WHere can I get a skewer with internal cam? I have a new wheelset AMerican Classic "terrain" model and I am using the AC skewers. (which I dont like)

    @robtre dont you have the new thumb screw axel holders? I cant find pics on their site anymore. No parts at all. But i know they have all new ownership as of this time last year, and they have been making some changes.

    XT rear skweers are around used, on ebay. The difference between the external and internal Cam is the internals can put more consistent pressure and more of it and the externals.

    Seriously? Well that sucks! Those guys have been there since at least Dec some time. I remember seeing them out there with their little elf hats and then stumbled on your last photo with them. Perhaps when the park guys did their walk thru/inspection of the trail they removed them or something. I bet some damn animal rights activist thought it was going to give the wild life out there emotional disorders and opted to remove them to prevent any rioting from the local wild life in the area.

    They have been out since October. I first saw them on the Epic. I would assume they will come back, but who knows.

    Got my first ride in on my brand-new-used Jabber. My buddy sees yet another new bike of mine and asks if I'll ever ride my geared hardtail. I said, "Yeah, of course". The frame felt great, the carbon fork was REALY nice compared to the steel I was used to, and running low pressure in the tubeless Crests was like riding on a cloud. On the way back I was asking myself if I'd ever ride my geared hardtail again. If I can get the hang of lofting the front end I'm sold.

    What you are seeing in the photos that I assume you like, is a shallow depth of field. Very wide apertures (f2, maybe up to f4) and a distant background will isolate the object, and create a butter smooth background.

    I'm using a Canon S95, which has good manual settings for aperture, but I don't know how well a shot would look with the whole bike in the frame.

    Most shots where I have the whole bike in the frame look very flat.

    The dude at Big Wheel Deals has a great way of making his stuff pop using the same low aperture method.

    Also, a great place to shop for big wheel deals

    I sent you a PM donkey.

    Point and shoot cameras may have wide-ish apertures, but the small sensor limits the shallow depth of field you get with SLRs. I really think if you wait for good light (like I didn't), find a nice wide open background (open field, long straight road) and keep that camera still you'll start getting good results.

    Good luck

    yeah, i heard the original owner of vassago had to sell to pay for some child medical bills and the new owner is not as quality and 'in it for the long' focused. Parts and customer support for vassagos are already long gone.

    Looks like that price is a glitch on their website. Just went to buy one and the actual price $391.16. Confirmed this with their live chat.

    Two rides in and so far i'm loving it. 21.4 lbs as it sits now. Got a '12 Reba RLT w/ 15mm maxle coming so that should bump it up to ~23.5 lbs. Can't wait to try the reba out on this thing.

    Previous owner of the frame had them installed by 3D Racing out of Durango. Also had some installed on the underside of the downtube. They are the rivet type.

    2nd cage

    Don't need anything to put a 2nd cage other than neoprene hose clamps. Get them at your local auto store. Never move. Never come off. Until you want them to.

    Well, I didn't get the second water bottle on just yet (we actually have the tool here at work so I ordered a nut kit that should be here in week or so). None the less, made a few changes over the past few months.

    New items:
    XTR race brakes
    Hylix carbon bar ends
    New wheels: Hope hubs, Crest rims, Sapim spokes
    Ashima rotors w/ ti bolts
    Ti bolts to replace stock rear hub bolt on bolts (shaved about 33g)
    Still waiting on HBC cog

    Finally broke 20 lbs! Wt w/ new wheels is 19.53! Not bad for a mass produced (well not even produced any more) steel frame.
