    1996 VooDoo Bantu Frame Value

    Question,
    Interested in an old 1996 26" large VooDoo Bantu bare frame, but don't know what I should pay. Does anyone have an opinion on what the value of one of these is?
    Thanks,
    Steve

    A bit weird right now since pricing is all over the place for used stuff since covid. But personally, $150 would be pushing it IMO. They're decent frames but they aren't highly desirable and don't retain much value like the voodoo steel and ti frames. If you're talking a bare frame with literally nothing, no BB, no headset, no seatpost, etc., I'd be aiming for more like $75 - $100. I've seen these as a complete bike with a very usable drivetrain and fork and decent wheels go for like $200 - $300 and they did not sell quickly.

    Steel ones like the Hoodoo or Bizango would be more like $200 - $400, depending on the frame and the djab something like $500 - $700.

    Thanks jestep.
    I thought this might be high, but he won't come down so the search continues. I have XT M737 derailleurs, M752 hubs, LX m5XXX 9 speed shifters, Avid V-brakes & a Cook Bros crank waiting on a decent mid-late 90 frame.

    Look for something earlier: late 80s, early 90s. Rigid stumpjumpers are great riding frames. Look for something w/ tange prestige tubing. Fat Wickeds used to be great deals. Maybe they still are. Anything that does not need a suspension corrected fork is better.
    Klein rascals or pinnacles are also excellent frames. Not to mention Salsa ala Carte, Ibis SS... Those are more expensive but worth spending on.

    I'll check some of those out. Thanks!
