I was really hoping to be able to ridicule ya but I can't, those bikes are hot!!!! I'm glad to see that you have finally become a weight weenie though, those cable housings on the voodoo look extremely light. The pedals and chain are a weight weenies dream as well!

Nice garage door as well. Have you considered some titanium hardware for it? Could lighten it up a few ounces.

I have no idea how you saw that. Have you been creeping around my garage?

BTW, it's not really a scratch, the protective tape got torn.

do you use soap when you take a shower?

gosh those things are filthy!! try a little soap next time

ummm...what else. your grips are silly. i think you should route your front brake hose motocross style. unless there is some permanent mounting feature on the backside of that left leg.

Thanks for the props everyone. I oughtta have the Voodoo finished up here in a few weeks. I think I'm gonna go bmx style, rear brake only. I was going to put my old 66R on it, but the bike is so heavy already - the frame alone is around 7 lbs That's a big reason why I decided against pedals, chain, and cable housing.

mx, what's moto style hose routing? Between the stanchions (like on the SX)? There is a little hanger on the fork, but I can use it either way.

mcoine, yep, it's an old supereight, still running strong (and loud).

And Mael, no point in painting that garage door rootbeer, it's too flexy already.

Okay.

66, I haven't decided which I'll bring yet. The new fork lowered the front of the SX by 20mm (while adding an additional 20mm of travel), and it corners like a rat with sneakers now. It climbs better too. If I can get myself in decent shape by then, I may bring it instead.

whats the deal with rootbeer? I've had my bike's color, which is "cameleon fire" described as rootbeer, which is actually what it looks like most of the time.

Are those sliding drops I see on the Voodoo?

Be prepared for them to look like hell in 2 months. Always check them each time before you go out on it.

Its an old joke that came to mind. For a long time that was THE (and I mean the ULTIMATE) paint colour to get your Santa Cruz bikes. It was all the rave.

I'm getting my cowan redone in rootbeer.

Also you're using a V brake on a D321? Those are not exactly v-brake compatible.

It's a D521 Ceramic. It was designed specifically for V brakes.
