    There are still missing calipers, brake levers and shifters, that are going to be Saints and M770 respectively. I'll take better pics outside with more light when she's finished.





    Supposed to be an AM bike but really heavy! I'll see what's the ride, she's supposed to bare some drops along the trail.

    Looks like a titanium Surly Instigator - who's the builder/company?

    The beast.

    Just finished this today.



    Voodoo Bakka 17" steel frame.
    X9/XT.
    Avid Juicy seven.
    '07 Marzocchi AM SL-1.
    Hope Pro II hubset; DT Swiss competition; EX5.1.
    The cockpit is an ugly, heavy Kore stem with an Azonic handlebar. It will probably be replaced with something nicer from USE during the spring.
    Old RF crankset with new Saint sprockets match the fork; SKF BXC600 provides the smooth action
    RF XY seat post topped up with a Selle Italia SLR XC.

    Evil spirit..



    Fun fact: manufacturers prefer the colour of love when they put sweet little details on their products:

    Cheers, Jason.

    I just recently bought this frame, mainly because I got a good price and because it's about 1 lb lighter than the Surly Instigator I've ridden up until now.
    What kind of rides would you say that the Bakka is best suited for?

    I guess I'll find out for myself during this winter, but it might be nice to have some input from a fellow Bakka-er, too.

    Those are both Dialled bikes frames methinks.

    PA = Prince Albert
    Kobe Ti = their titanium all mountain type frame (looks like a Ti Instigator)

    The Peytwo.

    Pike Dual-Air, Juicy-5 brakes, King/Hope wheelgoods, SRAM/RaceFace drivegoods. King HS, Thomson stem, EA-70 bar, Gravity Dropper Descender post.

    Finally got a decent ride on it a couple days ago. Very, very happy with how it turned out.

    yep. jump-stop + bashring + unramped ring + short cage rear mech + as short a chain as possible = no need for more guide, at least on this bike.

    Galfer rotors.

    Nope, bought as bashring only. They aren't any worse price-wise that way than many other bash rings. Not sure what the whole guide setup cost runs.

    On the gamut bashie...

    If you like that look and don't want a whole guide, I know Syncros sells one that looks the same (made of Al though).

    Here's my Allmountain hardtail entry into this fun. Its a 2007 Mountain Cycle Rumble that i build from scratch. I've had a lot of different setups on this bike and this is bye far the most fun you can have with your close on. It climbs like a billy goat and motors over anything. Build is full XT drivetrain, Hayes nine brakes and Marzocchi Drop off triple fork. Enjoy!!!

    yep, 24 rear, soon to have a shorter fork, more dj oriented than anything, but it shreds the local trails. As soon as i get a camera and some time new pics will be up, that was a phone pic.

    '05 rockhopper pro disc - pretty much stock But a blast to ride as is.





    Plans are upgrading both shifters and derailleurs to sram x-9. Hydro brakes, not sure which ones yet. Then a fork, one with adjustable height, external rebound adj., compression/preload dampening, and lockout. Looking at rockshox for now.

    Banshee Viento. Want cheaper.... the new Transition Vagrant with 1 1/8" headtube, also one pound lighter than the former onepointfive version.

    The Van 32 is 140mm whether is RLC or not. It would be a very nice match with the Viento as an agrressive trail/xc bike. Since a Van can bare a little more than that, the Vagrant is also a nice option and better if you wanna try also some tricks and maneuvers.

    ah yes...
    RLC = 32...
    got it mixed up with the 36, which i've been doing not but thinking of....
    at almost 700gm lighter then what i have now (55R), its exactly what i want...
    though i can't fault the 55R which rolls over anything i have guts to try...
