    Calling Voodoo owners!

    I have not seen much of them in this forum but i know that there are some. How about posting your Voodoo bikes here. Certainly will be nice to see some old and new Voodoo bikes posted in the same thread.

    Cheers

    It's not built up, but I have a voodoo djab, ti hardtail. I bought it in 1997 before disk brakes took off, and by the time they did voodoo had gone on hiatus. So I sent it to Dekerf up in Canada and had them weld a disk tab on and remove the canti bosses. They did a beautiful job with it, and kept all of the decals intact. I'll photograph the frame if anyone is interested in seeing it. It hangs on my shop wall like art right now, I will build it up again someday.

    cheers

    here's my wanga yesterday in the woods:


    the rear brake was leaking, so i mounted a v-brake until the problem is fixed. so normally, there's a black rim and a disc brake on the rear too.

    Frame geometry made for 100mm suspension fork in ' 94 was quite visionary, wasn't it?

    thanks man. yes those are mary bars but no middleburn cranks
    just old lx (fc-m570) but i like them.
    there have been some changes on the setup lately. the rear disc brake is back and theres a new set of wheels (hope pro2 ss) with some slightly fatter tires. there will be one more change soon and then i consider the ride 'finished'. i will show some fresh images then

    yep, M960's. gear ratio is currently 32:16, alright all rounder but i've out grown it. i've ordered a 15 just to mix things up a bit.

Just finished building up a voodoo bizango with my girlfriend (will post here asap). our plans are for touring later with it also. i love seeing MTBs being toured; done so throughout many countries. always ready for any beautiful, unbeaten track, or rough, "lonely" roads.

    Canzo 29er

    Felt like trying out some big wheeled squish... Very happy so far!

    I actually haven't gotten this bike out for a fun ride yet. The inaugural ride was an XC race the day after it was built... then an XC race two weeks later, then a big endurance training ride, then another race. Tomorrow, the true test: Vision Quest.

    I chose the Canzo over my Dos (which was about 6lbs lighter) due to less fatigue and it having a granny gear for the steep climbs and long day in the saddle. I think I'll like the last descent and the fire road out to the finish line a little more. But, the 1.8mi HAB up 2200ft is gonna be rough.







    Oh! I lied.. I did take it on one fun ride. No pics of me riding it, though

    Great bike, even though it is a tad too small for me.

    my apologies for the extremely poor, rushed photo...





    The build is not complete, i just threw on some of my junky parts on so i could get it dirty over the weekend. i'm waiting on a set of reba WC (in white, they'll be hawt), alligator wind cutters (7"/6"), WCS controls (bar, stem, post), a selle italia SLR ti and some nice rennen drive train parts (freehub spacers, 18T rear cog to replace the 16T that is smashing my knees and a nice 32T ring).

    once all that is done i'll make the effort to clean it lovingly (it's already filthy) and then take some much nicer shots to do it justice...

    Good job! I took mine to the races...

    At the 2008 TLBF SS XC race in Subic Bay

    Finished 3rd, behind 2 26er riders.

    I loved how the Dambala handled the tight, twisty singletrack. According to the photographer, quite a number of riders dabbed in this section. I just let the bike flow...

    Two more VooDoos...

    Here are a few more VooDoos from over here...

    2006 VooDoo Sobo 15"
    This one had the full scandium frame, without the carbon seat stays...apologies for the crappy phone cam snap



    Original owner sold the frame to a shop mech/racer (so it's in good hands now), and upgraded to a Bizango, sized 17"


    I've got photos of another HooDoo and a Wanga at home. Will upload those as soon as...

    I just finished a Sobo myself. '08 Sid Race, Daves wheelset <1550gms, Xt drivetrain with 12-27 cassette. Under 21 lbs on a digital scale. 17" frame is exactly 1540gms, not 3lbs!
    No big deal as most bike manafoofoos have little white scales.

    As soon as I podium with the bike I figure its worth posting pics. For now I will say that it is a huge improvement over the Giant aluminum hardtail I was using and with 4 inches of front travel I can finally ride my loop as fast as I did 9 years ago on a tricked out Trek 9.8.
    I was a strong young 41 when I had the Trek. The Sobo is one fast ride!

    Today I rode it over 35 miles with > 5000 ft climbing and those carbon stays are a HUGE improvement in the comfort department. Won't be long till I post those pics. . .

    Hey Gang,

    Thought I would post a couple of photos of a new model we are considering for next year. It is actually an SS road bike, but for my commuter riding here in Flagstaff I wanted to try it with a bigger front tire and dirt drops. So I put an Agwe fork on with a WTB Vulpine 29" tire and Origin 8 dirt drops. I even used the new Stan's CX rim strips and made them tubeless! The O8 bars are sweet because they have a very shallow drop to them and a good flare to the side. Anyway, this won't be produced like this but thought you might like a look anyway... I'll post production photos when I rebuild it properly (after I get my new Agwe built up!).

    the markings are for sag measurement not U-turn and that is a standard QR. RS just beefed up the dropouts so it looks bigger.

    here is my Voodoo Ogun. I have it setup as my heavy duty trail/FR bike.









    she has been a great bike so far, it rolls over whatever gets thrown in front of it.

    blast from the past...

    I finaly found an old picture of my d-jab.



    I suppose its quite retro now.

    Syncros crank arms and ti- bb, syncros ti post, Marzocchi atom bomb (z2). I did lots of races on it, this race was a local one that i won.

    Loved that bike!

    I am thinking of building up a Zaka for racing but can`t find a norwegian distributer?

    It's the 2009 SID, 100mm travel.

    No U-turn, just markings on the stanchions to help out with the travel measurements/adjustments.

    No Maxle on this one, just standard quick releases.

    Great fork, had it for about 2 months. Easy to setup, plush and tracks the hits well.

    actual weight of 1477g (steered tube uncut) is pretty WW too.

    You don't honestly believe that your Voodoo was designed to accommodate a 100mm fork do you. I mean seriously, in 1994 the longest travel fork was 60, maybe 70mm with an A2C of perhaps 430mm at most. Any 100mm fork is going to have what, like 40 or 50mm longer A2C, meaning your going to change the geometry by a couple of degrees if you go one way or the other. It may work out alright for you and the way you ride, but I really doubt your bike was intentionally designed in 1994 to use a 100mm fork.

    D'Jab

    I'm planning on getting a D'Jab....what a beautiful frame.
    There are 2 options on the D'Jab. A sliding dropout and a std vertical dropout. The sliding dropout looks very finicky and with all the plates and such it concerns me.
    I dont know if i will ever go the way of single speed but its always nice to have that option. The SS bug might bite me one day, we never know.
    But if its gonna give me trouble, then I rather go with the std dropouts.

    My concern is how strong are the sliding dropouts? Will I face issues of the dropouts moving out of position if i do drops and such? afterall the new frame is designed for forks up to 130mm and therefore its going to be pushed on the trails. I'm sure JM has done his homework but i would like to get feedback from users.

    Thanks.

    If you have doubts about sliding dropouts then forget it. If the SS bug gets you, then you can always buy an ENO hub. Granted not the cheapest solution but buying a frameset design that you're not sure about could be even more expensive. That being said I love my Bizango riding that orange piece of steel since 1995!

    Acording to Voodoo cycles the north american market only gets the sliding drop out frame. Where as the European market gets the standard dropout. I emailed to ask them how I could acquire one.

    I don't know if this would be useful, but I got an email from [email protected] saying that even a 140mm Fox Van RLC wouldn't be a problem for the frame.

    That's interesting. Anybody who has a 140mm fork on their D'Jab-'08 care to pitch in?

    10 year anniversary

    Here's my 1998 Djab. Been my main ride all this time. GREAT bike, but I think it's time to dismantle it and put the frame aside. I just posted about it in passion: http://forums.mtbr.com/showthread.php?t=454250

    Hey agu, what is the weight of the Dambala with this build? My 19" frame is in the 25 lb range and I'm always curious about what others come in at. Mine is build up as a single speed, carbon fork, Avid mechanical discs, stock wheels & tires but converted tubeless. I've got some lighter tires to put on but I'm waiting until next spring to mount them.

    Hi!

    According to my friend this build comes in at 24.5lbs.

    I'll be slapping on an ex-Niner OEM Reba SL 29 on my Damabala tonight and will weight it. I expect it to be around 25lbs or so.

    Hello, this is my first message. These are my two bicycles, a Voodoo Bizango and Voodoo Sobo.

    I like the bicycles designed for Joe Murray.

    Nice bikes! I like the white bizango. Is the 853 compliant or on the stiff side?

    here's the latest incarnation of my VooDoo Dambala. After 'redesigning' the front-end geometry of my old frame, I replaced it with another and slapped on a RS Reba SL UT and a Syntace Vector Low Riser bar.

    lots of nice rides here - I especially like the white Bizango. In fact, I may be repainting my Dambala soon!

    now updated wih a Salsa Moto Ace flat bar and Salsa Delgado Race rims...

    I got a Voodoo with the same frame redesign. I also destroyed a carbon fiber rigid fork in the process.

    Yes, the bike has been replaced the same as before. I was hoping for a more generous crash replacement offer, but I guess one can't expect free replacements for non-mfg failures.

    The Biz is/was a great-riding frame! I see a Dambala, Aizan or a Zaka in your future

    does anybody hoodoo?

    no one out there has a hoodoo? oh well. it is pretty wild to see this cult-like following of the voodoo variety. when i first moved to vermont from arizona, the local bike shop dude was ecstatic to see a voodoo 'this side of the mississippi'...

    here's a pic of mine. a well-loved hoodoo i've ridden everywhere from flagstaff to east burke (the kingdom trails rock). lately it's been serving me as a commuter bike (i know, i know, too heavy and too many accessories!). can't afford the road bike right now.

    i'm moving out of the country really, really, really soon and it is outrageously pricey to ship bikes so i am actually parting with my jovial yellow friend of 10 years .
    look for it in the classifieds...

    we ordered a few jerseys direct from VooDoo HQ in Taiwan - should be coming in soon. (we're the Philippine distributor for VooDoo). I dig last year's jersey - it had Drunk Cyclist and Live Wrong logos on it hehe.

    Nice Canzo, Birial. Now go get it dirty!

    SUCH a fun bike! Originally had a noodle of a fork on there (SID XC), and although it was super light, the bike didn't really shine until I slapped on a Fox F80. Man, that bike could carve up the turns up or down hill!

    Unfortunately, will have to post it up for sale Check out the MTBR classifieds if you're interested.

    Z is for Zaka

    Swapped over all my parts from the Dambala to a Zaka, so...here she is!

    Will be riding it for a while so I'll try to post comparisons to the Dambala.

    My Humble Wanga..... AKA Orange and Black Monster

    OK Guys... I dunno what happened to my initial post... so I'm posting this again...

    Here's my humble Orange and Black (MOSTLY) Voodoo Wanga

    The frame's a medium Wanga thats actually a bit too big for my 1.72m height.. I've got short arms....

    So I decided to bring the bars closer to me by using a short stem and a FSA DH300 zero setback seatpost.... worked wonders really...

    This build was done with no regard to weight at all... just based on budget and proven parts, hence the SLX crankset and the BB7 brakes, completed with XT rear D and SLX front D, RS Tora 318 Solo Air fork, Mavic EN321 rims, WTB Velociraptor tires, WTB Weirwolf grips and Specialized Rival 143 saddle, handlebar is Azonic World Force Pro with 2" rise..

    As a result of this, it has also turned out to be a 15 kg monster...

    Enjoy and let me know what you think...












    The gold Salsa seat clamp was my bike shop mechanic's idea of bling...

    posted this on the 29er forum...

    initial impressions...
    <hr style="color: rgb(183, 183, 183);" size="1"> <!-- / icon and title --> <!-- message --> there's a local trail here that has a nice series of whoop-de-dos. When I last rode it with the Dambala, I could feel the dips and peaks as the rear wheel did the whoops.

    On the Zaka, those same dips and peaks seem less pronounced. So I guess there is a bit more vertical compliance when compared to the Dambala.

    However, the Zaka seems to be stiffer laterally, as the same trail also has a series of swooping turns and tight off-camber harpins. The Zaka seems more agile when entering corners. For some strange reason it appears to have quicker steering (yet geo numbers say the same). On a related note, I had to use a 2.5mm spacer underneath my stem to match the setup I had on the Dambala. The Dambala had a 5mm spacer underneath.

    Weight-wise, my Dambala came out at 24.75lbs. after swapping all the parts over to the Zaka, and using the same shop scale, the Zaka comes in at 23.8lbs.

    It's an old but good fork. Plenty stiff, simple and easy to work on (rebound and compression adjustment with lockout). I got it from eBay a few years back. The model is XC.4
    They're built in Grand Junction, CO and WB's Customer Service is some of the best in the industry...

    here are the jerseys...

    Shown are the regular jerseys in a pale gold/black combo, and the team jerseys in blue (showing the rear coz you got the front already shown, above).

    A caveat: the team jerseys run a size small, so while I wear a medium in the regular jersey, I wear a large in the race kit.

    Is there any Voodoo hardtail frame that can take a 120 - 140 mm travel fork or any way I can modify a Wanga... like weld steel plates to reinforce or thicken the headtube area such that I can run a 130mm fork??

    Sorry, pero mejor escribo en español, no te parece.

    Voodoo no vende su pegatas, no obstante manda un email a John Benson que es uno de los socios de Voodoo, junto a Joe Murray, tal vez él te diga si se pueden conseguir de alguna manera, aunque dudo que se pueda. Su email es [email protected].

    Como último recurso puedes encargar que te las hagan en vinilo. En ForoMTB hay algún forero que las hace.

    Por cierto, en ForoMTB hay un hilo de la marca donde te podremos ayudar en un futuro.

    Saludos.

    PD.: Estaremos encantados de ver tu cuadro de titanio en el censo.

    Any of you guys have any experience with buying a VooDoo frame from Ebay's "Shoppio Shop"? I've been thinking about starting a steel mtb project and was looking at a Bizango frame, and was wondering how legit that store was..

    Nice Canzo David 315 I have an 07 just like it ... I have an XC600 120mm fork on it now but I was looking at putting a SID wc 100mm fork on it soon

    I got my frame on ebay from mile wide sports out in Flagstaff, AZ

    and now that the 09 Canzo 29r is Black I'm looking at building one up ... does anyone else have a Canzo 26 and a Canzo 29
    I used to ride to Win ... Now I ride to Grin

    While my guitar gently weeps, my bike sits there mocking me

    I'm going to cheat and post old pictures from what will probably always be my favorite bike. It weighed in at a whopping 20.5 lbs. For some foolish reason I sold it. I think donkekus was the person that bought it so hopefully he got a lot of good miles out of it!

    Hi guys new here!

    Love the Voodoo builds I've see here......didn't even know they existed till a week or so ago.
    I have been working on a Mongoose Blackcomb full suspension (What was I thinking?)
    Currently at 43lbs it's too much of a beast for a 44yr old Guy to hontestly hoof up and down our hills here.
    I can't afford a wad for a Bike so I recently scored a Hoodoo CHEAP enough to combine a few things from my Goose to it and make a NICE light weight bike. (Under 30lbs hopefully)
    Disk brakes are one swap I'm making along with my Alex DP17 rims and WTB Velociraptors.
    Love to have a light weight full suspension but just way outta my range.
    A light weight hard tail will work for me.

    I was originally on the hunt for a Rock Shox Tora to replace the crappy RST CAPA T8 74mm off my Goose.
    My Brick Goose is posted here https://forums.mtbr.com/showthread.p...69#post5850969
    Then I found a whole Hoodoo with that fork for the price of the fork alone.
    This includes the Pop Loc and Pump no less!
    Titec XC flat bar with Titec Lil-Al neck....Titec seat post among other plus items in the deal!

    From what I'm seeing with my research the Voodoo Bikes are really decent quality?
    What are the near equal to? Diamondback....Iron Horse?....GT???
    Nobody in my area sells Voodoo or even heard of em!
    From what I see of Google searching gotta guard em pretty close....seem to be a prime theft item!!!

    Comments welcome....Please chime in esp to further educate me about these bikes.

    I start my build of my Hoodoo tomorrow after Mr UPS delivers it.

    good find on the HooDoo!

    don't forget to post photos once it hops off the brown truck!

    VooDoos are designed by Joe Murray (MTB Hall of Fame member) and the combination of materials used and geometry/design make for one sweet ride!

    Those are actually pics from my rides every week; I am lucky to live where I get this kind of beauty, even if I have to climb a few thousand feet to get it. I like by bike, but I love where it takes me and what it shows me!

    Missing the chain and the left Truvativ GXP FireX 175mm Crank arm.
    Guy lost it in a move.....dunno if I can get just the arm new or hafta get the whole set?
    The Fork is a RS Tora 318 Solo Air with pop-lock and pump.

    left (non drive side) should be easy to replace if it has a square taper bottom bracket. Probably does on an older Hoodoo. I replaced my stock left crank arm from the local shop and it was about $17. Sounds like a great deal on your new bike!

    How can I tell for sure what year it is?
    The Tora fork came with Owners manual with a date of 2005 and I had to take one of the SRAM shifters apart to fix it and it had a date of 2006.
    Guy I got it from THOUGHT it was a 2007 model.

    Truvativ GXP crank is external bearing. The "spindle" is attached to the drive side crank arm and the non-drive side has a splined interface. You should be able to find just the crank arm without much trouble. What a steal at the price!

    I guess I just made an assumption on the age since i didn't think Voodoo had made the Hoodoo in quite a few years. I don't ever remember seeing it on their website, but I first looked at the end of 2007 when my Dambala came my way

    Oh yeah, there it is. I've just always over looked it I guess. Nice bike, great deal! I think your BB sounds like pretty standard stuff, so the crank arm should not be too much trouble to replace.

    Ok Slo....this what I found out.
    Local store can't get me a arm till the end of July....then it's $50!
    Hell with that I wanna get it done soon so I can use it.
    So I'm better off watching the bay or here for one to turn up.
    I think on evilbay I can get the whole shibang for $75 shipped.

    **** UPDATE ****

    Scored a Truvativ Firex crankset W/ Giga X Pipe BB 175MM off the bay for $49.95!
    I had a $25 reward voucher via paypal to use so I got it for $24.95.
    I take it if I hafta install the new crank BB it's not a big deal?

    Bike assembly is coming along.....
    Got the SRAM Gear shifts and brake levers installed.
    Bought a set of Bontrager Big Earl Lock On Grips today.
    NICE can remove and reinstall if needed without soap or cutting!
    Got the disc calipers transferd from my old bike.
    Just gotta cable and and adjust....oh and wait for the crank set.
    BTW: Bike is a Factory Dark Brown Metalic.....odd normal dark color for Hoodoo is Maroon.

    New Voodoo Canzo

    Got a new Canzo built up about a week ago. I have about 5 rides on it so far. Waiting till the shock is broken in and I have the suspension dialed to give a ride report. Build quality looks good. Fit is good. It doesn't seem to have an abundance of standover compared to some other bikes out there, but I can't even think of the last time I did a dismount to the top tube, been quite a few years. Pivots look to be in about the same place as a TNT Turner, not bushings obviously, and I'm not saying the performance is in the same league as I haven't ridden a Turner, but at least they're in a tried and tested position. I'm coming from riding a Transition Preston for the past three years as my only bike, also 5" travel, but way plusher. Climbed well enough, but at 40lbs it was a chore on XC. The Voodoo climbs quite a bit nicer. Besides the obvious weight difference, it's also more firm to pedal, much less bob. It's taking me a while to get used to the far different geometry, going from ~66.5deg HA to about 69.5 deg, and from a 160mm Wotan to the 120mm Reba. I started getting a good feel for it tonight though and was ripping pretty fast, now I'm able to slice and dice around bigger rocks instead of just cruising over them. I'm looking forward to a lot of epic rides on this beast. Flagstaff in a few weeks. It came in at 28lbs on the Park digital scale in the shop, that was without the grips and barends, so I would estimate 28.25lbs now. Not bad for 5 and 5. Ok, here are the pics.

    Fall is here. Woo-hoo!
