    Question Voodoo Limba

    Just wondering if anybody knows if the new Voodoo Limba is disc compatible? I've seen places where they list it as canti or disc ready, but I'm not spotting any disc brake tabs in any of the photos I've seen. I've emailed Voodoo twice with no response, and can't seem to find a phone number.

    Anybody know for sure or know of a local dealer in the Denver area?

    Thanks

    Thanks, but I'm pretty sure that's last year's model?
    The new ones are white and have standard dropouts instead of the sliding DOs.

    thats a tough one. these guys list it as being disc compatible, maybe call them and see if they've got one in stock they could look at.

    For anyone who might be interested

    Here's part of the reply from Voodoo about the Limba...
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    No it does not have disc mounts on the frame,
    but we are still spec'ing a fork with disc tabs.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------

    Thought I had my perfect commuter/all-purpose roadie frame there for a minute. Scandium, room for fenders and fat tires, and disc tabs...no wait, scratch that.

    I'll keep looking around. The only other thing I've found that's close is the Cannondale Cyclocross disc, just having trouble finding one in stock and on sale.

    Well seeing that most braking comes from the front why not get the fork they offer in disc and use canti's on the back? I would be surprised that in what ever weather you commute in you would need more braking power than this setup.... but I might be wrong.

    I just have a thing for disc brakes. But you're right, and I'm not counting the Limba out yet. It seems like a really nice frame for the money.

    After a little more digging, I've found the Salsa Las Cruces (a bit pricey for me right now) and apparently Lemond has a disc-equipped steel bike (Proprad?) that looks sweet. Haven't found a price yet.

    Maybe I can talk the wife into a Las Cruces as a Father's Day present??
    (but honey, gas is $3.25 a gallon, and if I ride to work everyday...)

    The search continues»»»

    the 06 Redline comes with disc tabs also,I'm not sure about the 07, but judging by the other bikes your looking at it might not fit the bill

    Thanks guys. Both the Norco and the Redline look like they could fit the bill.

    Brodie had two or three models with disc brakes as well.

    Hi

    I just received my 2006 Voodoo Limba, which is in a metallic mint green. I can confirm it does come with sliding, disk compatible drop-outs. These are still being listed on E-Bay, although the sizes available are limited.

    The frame/color is beautiful, and I'm going to build it up as a single-speed. It also strikes me as a cross frame made by a MTB company, as the sloping top-tube is more extreme, the headtube is shorter, and it is reinforced with a gusset.

    You might also want to consider the Kona Major Major, which is a 20007 full Scandium frame with a disc tab and 130mm spacing. Details are at:

    http://www.konaworld.com/frames_main.htm

    And they are for sale here:

    Good luck with your decision.
