I'd take the Voodoo personally.

FYI they only have Medium sizes in stock at Wiggle.

ive said it before to others and il say it again :)

if you go for the voodoo as they are halfords only, if you join british cycling on the basic 1 year membership costing about £12 you can get 10% off any bike at halfords even stuff thats in the sale. so you would save almost £50 on a voodoo

the money you save will get you a good helmet or camelbak or bike tools

My nephew has the latest GT Avalanche 1.0 and whilst it's a great little bike, it's also a bit on the heavy side. I can't speak for the Voodoo Hoodoo directly but I've seen it get good reviews all over the place.

If I was buying now I'd probably go for the Voodoo.

What does the GT Avalanche 1.0 2012 weigh?

The Voodoo Hoodoo is 13.7kg

Link for SS :)

Drive train is better on the GT but I would say the fork on the hoodoo is better and I would rather have a better fork.
