I continue to present you my current bikes...

At the time I started to write this topic, the bike isn't finished yet... Crankarms, saddle and chain are missing...


Following the topic name and the forum rules :mrgreen: , you can imagine I'm not talking about The Prodigy's song. This is about a small bike brand created by a legend and one of our gurus 8-) 8-) 8-)


Mr Joe Murray of course !!!

I already own a Canzo Ti, but I wanted to find his little bro, the D-Jab :roll: :roll: :roll:

I found a frame in the US in 2009. It is a frame from 1995 and close to NOS condition. That's cool!!! The price was correct and shipment costs to France too. Let's go!!!


Image


The frame arrived and I don't know exactly why... but wanted it as a single with green parts :lol: :lol: :lol:
Anyway, I had other project to finish first, I let it in my appartment's office for a while!

To build it, I've been thinking at a Judy XC fork because of the champagne color not to far away of the titanium color :roll: :roll: :roll: also because it's from 1995... And some green parts then, but not too much!


Ok, when you say VOODOO, you think TITEC. I need Titec titanium for bar, stem and post then! For now, the post is still missing!!!

Concerning the headset, of course a King in green!!!


Image


and Grafton brake levers in green too 8-) 8-) 8-).

In september last year, I founded a NIB Judy XC in the US but with a short and threaded steerer tube. I had to get a long and not threaded one, founded in Germany.


Image
Image


To build it as a single and as the frame as standard dropouts, I must find White ENO excentric hub. Just because I don't like the vision of a chain tensioner :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: . It's awefull!!!


But a friend was selling a set in france built with Mavic Ceramic rims... Perfect!!!

Ditto. Always had a soft spot for Voodoo. I can't wait to see this built.

That is going to be lovely once it's finished. It's lovely already.

PIMP!

Looks great - always liked the voodoo with the Joe Murray design. I would say loose the black boots on the forks or pop on some clear/see-through ones to complete that slick look 8)

Love it I have a modern Voodoo D-Jab, but with gold bits. They are great bikes, the best thing is Joe Murray replies to your queries when you email 8)

The eno is also a great bit of kit for a clean single speed look.

You're not going for a chain tensioner but I'm interested to see what you will do with the mech hanger?

cut it :lol:

jokes aside, its a very lovely frame and I'm very interested to see how it will turn out. Have the same frame and no idea what the build is going to be, so I need some inspiration :)
