Hi All
I am on the verge of purchasing a Voodoo Rada 2000 road Bike. Was wondering if anyone has has any experience with them or know anything about them. I will be buying it new, the LBS claims it was lost in the warehouse the past two years. I am wondering where the frame was made and what type of quality they were known for. The Frame is Reynolds 831 and it has a full ultegra gruppo. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

my GF has a ti Voodoo CX frame that she got used this spring and LOVES it. The welds are very nice and it looks like care was taken in the frame build (breezer dropouts, etc.) She has a spare set of wheels and uses it on the road too.

Give it a ride and see! If it fits and rides nice, I would definately consider it. As a plus, its always fun (IMO) to have something that is not a C-dale, Trek, Giant, etc. (not to say that they aren't worthy rides)

good luck!

Voodoo was a botique (sp?) builder that went under the other year..yes, they are quality bikes....they were more into mtbikes as the owner of voodoo was one of the original mtb guys....I would buy without hesitation. Supergo closed out all those Rada's when Voodoo went under...

They had a great reputation in the mountain biking world. Joe Murray, one of the original Kona guys, was the designer. I think they may have overextended themselves in the lower-end mtb market. I'd buy the bike, but tell the LBS that the "lost in the warehouse" story is bunk. Ordinarily, I'd say stay away from "orphan" bikes, but Voodoo is an exception, I think. Since it's a steel frame, you'll be able to get it repaired if it breaks.
