Voodoo Limba

Hello, I'm considering purchasing a Voodoo Limba for winter training and potentially cx racing. Any feedback on this model? Having a tough time finding any reviews online...Thanks.

I just snagged one of the older Scandium ones with the sliding dropouts off Ebay for my wife. Building it up as a single-speed as soon as I get some new brakes for it. Only drawback so far is that the rear spacing is 135mm.

I built mine about 6 weeks ago, and I really enjoy it. The paint does chip off of the drive side stay, because of the chain. Other than that, I have no complaints. I have ridden two practice cross races on it and have also been commuting to work/gym everyday. Go for it.

About the rear spacing.. I do have the same frameset and it's a 130mm rear dropout spacing.

I've had this bike for over a year now and I am very happy with it. You can build it into any configuration that fits your riding needs. My build has went from a multi-geared CX bike with canti brakes to Fixed gear with Canti and now, Single speed with Disc brakes.

Sweet rig. Not sure why they have the different spacing in the rear. I just built the bike up this week and it's actually pretty sweet. The sliding drops, with the wide spacing, make chain adjustment a little finicky as you have the rear under tension so when you back the bolts off on the sliding drops, it gets kinda funky. I'd thought about disc's also. If I find a light set of wheels maybe I'll swap it.

Here's a pix.
