    VooDoo Wanga Chile (slight return)

    here's a shot of the new VooDoo Wanga w/sliding dropouts. The first pic is horrible; the angles look all funky, but it's a pretty normal 72/72 on my 20" frame. The second shows the dropouts. Initila impressions are pretty boss. Two major shakedown rides in Fruita last week with no problems. I'll try to post more shots once I decompress after this weekend's Bike Swap.

    Good job! Nice Ride Bro!

    Nice!

    Hope Fruita was good, saw Simon in some pics on Pete Fagerlin's site.

    McGruff is still pretty much MIA.

    No why did you have to

    go and post that pic? Now that Voodoo's are available again I'm already very tempted to pick up a Wanga One to replace my Haro and seeing one in somebodies hands makes me even more tempted!!!

    You said your angles were 72/72, so did Voodoo abandon their 71 degree headtube, 74 degree seattube from before their departure?

    Sweet ride...

    ...but didn't I see that crank/ring set up for sale recently in classifieds? Maybe you bought em.

    Looking forward to the bike swap.

    same-same, but different

    Nope, these are not them. Also note the smooth-running White Industries Eno disc hubs (non-eccentric rear). Super nice build-up, roll forever.

    Depends on size. 20"=72/72, 18"=73/71, 17"=74/71.

    Specs (albeit limited) are here:

    Nice ride!
    Excuse my ignorance..but I've seen a few nice rigs w/ the sliding horizontal/quick-release set-up....that are using bolt on rear ends...

    Why wouldn't you opt for a Q/R on that vertical dropout? It seems to be that you take away half of the ease of using that great system...having to carry a big wrench w/ you.

    Please enlighten...

    Swanky Hurl.

    I might be able to make the swap. Depends on what me & the preggy one are up to. We were talking about heading up for Art-a-whirl, and hitting the swap for a bit at the same time. Or we might be having a baby. I'd like to see that rig in person though. Looks nice.

    Think of it this way Marty, what is the better story. I went into labor sitting around in La Seuer, or I went into labor at the Strongarm bike swap while my husband was dominating in the relay race.

    HA! yeah...I don't think Lisa'd let a bike anywhere near the car for fear of the actually happening! Last thing she needs is a busted up husband and a baby trying to get out in the same day...

    QR vs. Michael Bolton

    The hubs came stock with some pretty sweet 6mm capped dropout bolts. In fact, on these White Ind. hubs, it's the cap that forms the the "lip" to fit into the dropout. I haven't even sighted down the hubs to see if they're hollow to accept a QR. But more than that, I don't think I've ever gone on a ride where that "big, honkin'" 6mm allen wrench has ever been a hindrance. I will be building a pair of wheels around the Surly QR disc hubs, and will give them a shot, too.

    Ah, c'mon ~martini~, you gotta get out on the bike for sanity sake. I was out on a lunch ride heading back to the office when a co-worker pulled up alongside in his car and said my wife called and her water broke and to meet her at the hospital after I finished my ride and showered. She's a keeper.
