Jericho Frame???

Does anyone know anything about Jericho bike frames? I picked one up a while back but I don't know that much about it. Any info appreciated!

Josh Ogle. Started building in OR, then moved and kept building in CA somewhere. I think the Ogle to Jericho name change happened when he changed locations. Don't think he's been building for a couple years now. Was doing some really sweet stuff for a while. Started messing around with belt drive stuff well before Spot, Trek, and the couple other companies playing with it now ever did.

Looks like someone has that built up as more of a jump or DS ride. You scored a really nice steel frame super, super cheaply.

if you haven't already, i'd pull it apart and check for rust and rebuild with a fresh coat of frame saver or somesuch inside the tubes.

nice score! leaving it as is, or swapping parts for other stuff?

(i grew up and lived around eugene up until 2000)

the rear derailure was broken so I replaced it with an xt, but most of my extra parts are for road bikes, so I will probably leave the rest as is. it's got nice xtr brakes, but the wheels are no good. i might build something nicer.

it looks to me to be setup more for DS, but the geometry would tell. so long as it's comfy for you and how you want to ride, rock on with the thing!

get to a hardware place and get some rust inhibitor spray. clean into the frame openings as much as you can, then spray liberally inside the tubes, slosh things around a bunch, let drain and dry. the idea is to coat the tube insides with the stuff. don't do it anywhere you'd not want the stuff to drip out onto.
