Voodoo Bokor - Updated 17/4/13

Postby DanDax1990 » Sun Jul 01, 2012 19:15 pm

As the title says... This is my fairly new Voodoo Bokor

Frame size is 20" and pretty much everything is standard apart from a few new parts and a few more new parts to come including a FSA SL-240 Carbon seatpost and an FSA OS115 stem with carbon faceplate. I like carbon btw haha.

I bought the bike second hand from a guy who had previously bought it new from Halfords and rode it twice before selling it to me for a bargain price which I was uber happy with.

Criticize? Let's see

Nope. Sorry. Maybe the saddle bag and lights? I'm guessing your using it to commute. I like it. Very nice

Yeah I use it to commute aswell, Only just got back into my biking so for now 1 bike is enough and the saddle bag is there just for my battery pack for my front light :)

Really want to get more on the trails though but I live in Bradford and trails are hard to come by unless if I'm just not looking in the right areas lol.

P.S The guy I bought it from sold me it for £350 (Meant to be £600 new) and he had only rode it twice (On roads) and included in the sale a brand new Giro Hex helemt which fits me perfectly, 2 spare inner tubes, 2 cans of GT85 and a Magnum Plus mini shackle and cable lock set. Bargain.

Since then I got the lights from my brother for free, I bought the saddle bag and charge spoon saddle. I bought the FSA K-Force handle bars from the classifieds on here for a bargain too, the clark lock-on grips as the old white ones looked naff and the KCNC top cap, valve caps and seat clamp to tarten it up a bit and match the red decals. Got some 26 x 1.95 Schwalbe City Jets for comuting too.

Liking the colour.. I tried to steer away from the red :P

How are you finding it so far? The Bokor is my first bike so to be honest, I have nothing to compare it too.

Thereis more red on the way, Jockey wheels and bolts, rotor bolts, crank bolts, bottle cage bolts and inner gear cables and a few more tartys bits after that.

It's also my first bike for a long time, Really enjoying it and to me its also a pleasure to look at. I'm just getting to that stage where I'm not so bothered about it getting a bit mucky lol.

It's a great bike for the price. It's handled everything I've thrown at it so far and can't see me pushing it beyond its limits for a long time.

The previous seatpost was just the standard non-branded post mate. I was going to go for a carbon FSA 350mm but would have been a little bit too short.

Hi mate the voodoo looks good. Quick question about your mucky nuts fenders. I have never seen them on the rear before which model of fender are they? Think they look good. How good a job do they do at actually do at keeping you dry though? I currently have a big crud catcher as I use my bike everyday rain or shine for work and wouldn't want to change it for something that gives little or no protection

I'm sure its the 2.0 mate but the 2.1 fits the same too and they do a great job for what I got them for, Front for keeping my face clear and rear for keeping my front mech clear.

I didn't get the rear for keeping ud off my ar*e/back cause I just wipe it off lol and same for water, I'm gonna get wet with or without a big mudguard lol. The rear keeps a lot of dirt from getting to the front mech which is what I wanted.

I put an extra crud catcher on the front if I know I'm gonna be riding in really bad conditions though but yeah, Not bothered about mud/water up my back.

looking good mate. not that it matters but you have put the c-guide on the wrong way round. the bolt should be at the back.
