    Voodo Wanga Reynolds 631 or Black Magic

    Hi
    Recently i purchased a Voodoo Wanga 19" advertised as Reynolds 631from 3bay. Having received the frame I'm not sure if it is the older Reynolds 631 model as advertised or the later Black Magic Cromoly - there's no label. Is there a difference between the two and how do i go about telling one from the other. Is it nothing to worry about and will i experience the same ride and build quality the Wanga is said to give.The 3bay item number is 230646883632
    Any advice would be appreciated.
    Thanks

    Why does it matter.....just ride the thing.......if it makes you feel any better just get some 853 stickers for it!

    Hi
    Thanks for your advice!
    I was under the impression that it did matter because many reviews of the later Black Magic version stated that the paint work chips very easily and of warranty issues with the manufacturer. I was also informed that this was not so on the older 631 version. Having a certain badge or sticker, Reynolds or otherwise was not important. However a poor paint finish that chip very easily and issues with warranty was. I purchased the frame advertised as Reynolds 631 for that reason only. I basically surmised from all that i had read that maybe the Reynolds 631 would be the better option for all the reasons mentioned above.

    You'd probably have better luck in a Voodoo-specific fan club or owners group or something.
