    Lets see those Vassago Jabberwocky builds....
    O.K. I'm in the process of building up an 18" Black Jabberwocky. I'd love to see some pictures of anyone out there so I can get some ideas. Thanks so much for any help.

    Here's one that didn't used to be black
    Now it is after I added a little crotch clearance by moving the cable guides for a smaller rider.

    DWD how tall are you? I've been told to order a small. I'm 5'9" but do not like the idea of a long stem to adjust cockpit. I know the site says I should get a small, but I'm leaning toward an 18. Just checking to get your perspective since you own and ride one.
    Thanks,
    Paulie

    Paulie....Hey, Todd emailed me yesterday. wants to know if I want a bike. Hey, I will keep in mind what you had said about the Jabber.....Seriously, If you think you may want to unload it after your tear down of the Badger, I may just hold on for a few months. Those Jabber's look pretty cool...I like the frame geometry.
    I'm afraid you may become attached to it and may want to keep it in your quiver!
    I think I would lean towards the 18 also. I like the longer TT over a long stem myself.
    Stand over shouldn't be a problem.
    Road Nisene yesterday, did the usual ST. Felt pretty good!
    Tone. :D

    Is that the 2008 frame? Are there any cable guides for a 1x9 setup?

    About eight months old.
    Pretty heavy but then again chromoly cranks and a solid spindle will do that for ya, plus it's cheaper to loose weight than build a light bike.

    PoorBehavior: Nice Jab! Are they On-One Fleegle bars?

    sorry bro, I don't know exactly - I think about 22lbs as pictured though.

    I would weigh it for you, but I took the FOX off to put on my Optimus Ti.

    I need to buy another fork, and another set of brakes... :)
