My New Rig - Voodoo!
« on: October 13, 2019, 01:34:52 PM »
So I bought this frame on bmxmuseum. It looks like it has never been rocked. Immaculate. In fact, most stuff I've bought new from shops have had more damage from shelf wear than this frame has.


I spent all day building it up so I could immediately start riding it..
I still need to tweak the rear wheel. Basically, I need to remove one more chain link and slam the crap out of it.

I'll be taking better pics in the daylight. Can't wait to beat the crap out of this thing.

basically just a rough draft.**

Thanks, guys. Here are some better pics.


I've already changed some parts on it. I ditched the Odyssey Intact seat post. They work awesome on my other Ten frames but I needed the seat a little closer for hang Fives. I used a  Colony pivotal post with no offset and an Odyssey Convertible seat gut kit. I'm still waiting on a Colony Exon II stem so the Exon I can go back on my 18.8 Ten. I also think I'm going to ditch the Trackmark tires and go with the KHE Mac 1's that I have...They are so much lighter that it makes a noticeable difference on each end of whatever bike they are on. The Trackmarks are great tires..but since this frame is a little longer, I think I should remove a little weight in the rear. The Trackmarks will work well on the 17.9 Ten.

Nice one!
Have you used an Impurity Gyro before? I find it interesting but did not buy one yet.
What it the weight of the bike?

Yes, I have been using the Impurity Gyro for a while now on the recommendation of another Global-Flat member. I feel zero difference between the Impurity and the Gyro GTX-R. And I'm running both at the same time. One on each bike. The Impurity is excellent...and it cost 44.00 and something like $5.00 shipping. It was a really good deal. I spent too much time trying to hunt down another GTX-R because I like the built in knarps.


Funny you ask. I just weighed it. Right now, it's at 23 lbs 4.6 oz. ...If I switched to my other set of wheels with the KHE Mac 1's, I would shave another 1 lb or maybe a little over that with the difference in wheels as well. So, if I do that, it will be right around 22 pounds...which isn't bad when you're talking full brakes / levers / gyro / etc.


EDIT - I should also state that the quality and feel of the rubber on the S&M tires is absolutely superior than the KHE Mac 1's or even my Odyssey Frequency G's (Special Edition v2 1.75")...But the KHE's are noticeably lighter when you have them on a bike. Literally noticeable. The Odyssey Frequency G's on a digital scale, in reality, weigh 1 lb 2.3 oz (18.3 oz)...where the KHE Mac 1's I have are LITERALLY 9 oz. ..Not advertised...actually weighed by me. I have a thing with weighing all my parts to see if they are actually what they are advertised as. But weight aside, if you still scuff in any way, the Trackmark tire is superior.


Also, while I'm ranting on these tires...Neither the Mac 1 or the Frequency G is a true 1.75" tire. However, the Trackmark is 1.75"...so it feels like you're using a wider tire at first even though you're just using a real 1.75" tire.

Thanks, man.
I've already made some changes. I will update it after I do some more parts swapping this weekend. It's really shaping up. I've had to change a couple things to accomodate the longer top tube.


Still not used to having a white bike...this is my first white frame EVER.

Hi Voodoo,
this is interesting what you say about the tires! Actually I was wandering why KHE sells the MAC 1 as 1.6" which it is...To be honest I never wanted to use a tire which is noticeable heavier than the KHE because I really like it when the wheels are light, so I did not try the S&M yet. DOM tires are the other option for me. I consider them pretty similar to the KHEs and they blow out less often...
Did you ever have any problems with the built-in knarps of the Gyros you have used? I have the old Odyssey steel version with knarps and they hold the cables in place even when you pull really strong. This is what I need because for decades I pull really hard.Did this work out for the Impurity Gyro?
