    I always loved the Voodoos, but never ended up buying one. How about an old Joe Murray Marin Team Issue instead? I'll post a pick when I can

    good news for Voodoo fans

    Voodoo has been resurected. Bicycle supplier BTI (www.bti-usa.com) is bringing them back to market as frames only. Check it. They don't have stock yet, but will be forthcoming for the '04 riding season.

    nice.

    it's a cult...

    with very loyal followers .

    I own two of the, IMO, best riding bikes on the planet. I have a fullrace setup Bokor, with CK, SID SL, XT/ XTR / ESP9.0SL, TUNE spec and a Wanga singlespeed set up with CK, LX, DMR, and the same SID SL.

    I'll post some pics soon (have to resize them, then figure out how to post 'em)

    Nice stable you have there, useyourdagger. Wish I had bought a DJab and a Loa myself, but then I was a youngster with no money when I bought the Bokor.

    I'm considering to get a new Bokor (as in the one on BTI's site) to replace my current one. This one will them be retired, but not sold.

    cheers
    Richard.

    does owning/using/selling his parts count?

    Let's see, not only do I still sell his old JoeMurray designed parts (from his early kona days) including tires and combo-cages, but I use them still myself as well, take the Maximum 2.2 Kevlar tires. Foldable, blackwalls, a real 2.2" width, and a decent all-round tread pattern. I use a pair on my Alpinestars Ti Mega and a lot of my friends use them on their bikes as well. I also used a set of Equilibrium 2.2 Kevlars as the basis for my hybrid studded tire experiment.

    Absoultely! March Availability!

    I had my LBS call BTI, and they said they would have stock on all Voodoo frames in March!

    Here is the BTI link to their Voodoo frames:
    http://www.bti-usa.com/list.asp?clas...e1=F&showme2=V

    Also, they carry derailer hangers as well. Not sure if they have one that will fit my 2001 Bokor, but I will find out.

    Any idea how much the SOBO is going to cost? Though, I am a little depressed because I wanted the much tighter Salmon color from EURObike, not the silver!

    Blah.

    I used to have a Bokor that I got back in jr. high. I wish I still had it but I sold it because I grew out of it. I loved that bike. I am very excited about the new frames. I will have to get one!

    Tange Bizango

    Mosquito, I have a Tange Ultimate Superlight Bizango too. I do know they were made in northern California in-house by Joe Murray's crew, but don't know if they switched to Reynolds 853 in '98 or '99. I'm fairly sure they used the Tange until '97, which is supposedly the year of my bike. Love the build on yours; those blue cranks look great.

    bizango head badge............

    hello,

    the bizango that i purchased in 97' did not come with the head badge and the tange sticker. numbers of emails and phone calls to voodoo cycle did not help for me to obtain the missing parts.

    does anyone have knowlege about either purchase or claim the head badge?

    thanks in advance

    I have a new Bizango and love it.
    http://gallery.mtbr.com/showphoto.ph...cat=507&page=3

    Since that photo I put on the squishy fork, a black Skareb Super, switched over from XT shifters to X.9 and got a new wheelset that matches, black 517s silver spokes and 960 XTR hubs and put the nokia cable sets onto it. I love the way it looks and rides. The color is funky as can be, sometimes green, silver, yellow, depending on the light conditions.

    I'll have more photo's of it up after tomorow's race I am using it in, the Wilderness 101.

    The switch was made in early '98. I interviewed for a job with Voodoo in August of 98. I got the full tour of their Santa Clara facility. The guy I had interviewed with mentioned that they'd made the switch and were selling the Reynolds frames, but that there were a few of the Tange frames being held over for the employees that wanted 'em.

    Didn't get the job. They needed someone full-time and I still had a year and a half of school left. Too bad.

    I'm about to retire my '97 Bokor. I'll probably have to sell it. My wife thinks I already have too many bike mementos.

    Yah, I know, I know. My road bike is painted by Joe Bell, and it's beautiful. However, this time I'm going to try Cycle Fantasy here in OC for the Voodoo. They are closer, and slightly cheaper. The road bike is going back to Joe Bell for a repaint later this year though. Yellow and purple just aren't my colors

    Does anyone know how much difference between the Sobo and the Hoodoo. I demo'd a Hoodoo for a while, and I loved it. Has anyone ridden both that can compare the two? I see that the hoodoo isn't on the list of frames for sale on bti-usa.com.
