    Noo Voodoo Hoodoo (x-post to 29er board)

    No ride impressions yet, but its certainly green.. This is the 29er frame. The dropouts are the same as on the Wanga One though.

    WOW! Mmmmmmmm, green. That's a beauty Wooglin. Is it going to be a SS or a 1 X 7?

    Eric, web site is here, but there's not too much to it. Navigate through to BTI for frame specs etc.

    Lou, first build will be a single. Later I'll get the parts to make it a 1x8 convertible as well.

    Cool-blue Rhythm

    Very nice. I'd love to add one of those and a Wanga One to my quiver, but the 2000 Bizango might get jealous.

    Well, I rode it and nothing fell off, so I call it a successful build. Still need to do some tweaking, but I was pretty happy. Too tired for a real review (and I've only got 1.5 hours on the bike), but steering is quick and positive, so it worked well in the tight sections, while the big wheels rolled beautifully as advertised. Confidence inspiring on the downs, even with the KM fork. Speaking of which, I don't think that thing has any give to it at all. I need a bigger front tire. Didn't do much climbing, but I think it will shine most of all there even with the added rotational weight. Its harder to lift the front end than it would be on a 26" bike, so laying down the power while climbing should be a piece of cake.

    The only downside thus far is that there's not a lot of tire clearance at the chainstays. I've got to slide the dropouts all the way back to run my gear (32-20) and keep from buzzing the stays. Maybe once the chain stretches I'll be able to take out a link. I'm also going to trim down the knobs a little bit.

    All in all, I can definitely see the 29er buzz.

    Some pics, taken at 7 this morning so they're a little fuzzy.....

    Nice build, and I love the color. I am sure glad there is new voodoo on the trails. The old voodoo was getting scarce, and I think the spells were wearing off.

    Thanks, but let me screw around with tire pressure some first. And WTB's coming out with a 2.25 pretty soon as well so I may hold out for that. I've had good luck with their product.
