Looking good, Brian. The stock Voodoo paint seemed to be good stuff. Yeah, mine is silver & pretty buggered up. ;) I ran a 2.5" WTB up front at lower psi & with good gloves/grips & didn't miss that stock Deception fork at all. Would have stuck with it but started doing more rocks & boulders in the mountains & decided some air springs up front would be better. Do miss the extra/crisp control the Voodoo gave the bike.

How much do a few paint chips really matter anyhow....???


With me, chips in the paint matter wayyyyy to much, lol! I'll admit I'm a fanatic about how my bikes look.

Starting to look like a bike.

I have some concerns with how close the rotor is to the frame. Should I be concerned?

As long as other riders have already converted this frame over to disks, I wouldn't worry. It looks close, but as long as your adaptor gets the caliper properly lined up, it should work.

Yeah...That is what I thought but I was worrying about a little flex on the trail. I may wrap some tube around it like a chain slap guard just in case.

Man I guess its just the design of the frame but yeah mine was pretty close too. I don't recall if it ever did touch under flex or not, I'll double check the frame out for any marks.

Looking pretty sharp !!!!!

Thanks.

Did you use the a2z adapter for your rear disc?

Boomer, I just checked the frame it does have marks from it rubbing on it also keep in mind my wheel was out of true by 3/4. Yes I used the A2Z adapter.

Getting close. Took it for a spin around the block and this bike is fun. Can't wait to hit the trails. The bike feels pretty light. Need to weigh it.

Only thing left is to figure out if want to get the a2z or do something like Wicked did to his with another type of bracket for the back brakes.
