    Hope My new Voodoo

    A few weeks back, i asked around for some reviews of the Voodoo Bokor 29er... there didnt seem to be many responses out there, but the few were good. I just wanted something different and build this up for super cheap, so here it is.
    I've only ridden it around the block since i built it up yesterday. I thought it would be lighter but oh well, 22.8 lbs isnt terrible. I will trail test/review it later.

    18" Bokor One 29er
    Rock Shox Reba RLT fork
    Bontrager RXL wheels (not that light)
    Bontrager 29-2 Team TLR tirs
    M596 Deore brakes (kinda heavy)
    Truvativ FireX 1.1 crank (heavy)
    RXL seatpost, RL stem, RL handlebar, Cane Creek headset, and Rogue grips

    Pictures! (added better ones)

    Nice job. Now add to the ride reports of the others and confirm how good it is!

    Nice, I have a 26" one I'm building at the moment. Initially 26" as I have spare wheels, but maybe 650b later.

    Looks badass with the white spokes. Don't fret the weight, <23 lbs is pretty good.

    That's a sharp looking bike. And significantly lighter than my Nashbar special (27lb 15oz).

    I'm about a 1/2 pound heavier than that with my Bokor 26er setup with 650B wheels in SS mode. I'd take 22.8 lbs on a 29er in a heartbeat!

    Nice bike BTW.

    Hopefully Tuesday, i can get out on the cold trails. I work everyday until then.

    The weight is more than acceptable, with a couple more dollars next year, im sure it can get pretty light. But more importantly, i enjoy the overall quality of the build.

    Im hoping the tensioners/sliding dropouts work out well. Cant be any worse than a Rig! But i will definitely let you know, as that was my biggest concern.
