Strengths:    Solid, smooth ride. Quick through tight corners and stable over baby heads.

Weaknesses:    I've hammered this bike and not experienced any slippage with the drops. The recommendation of loctite is good but you might also check the torque spec (14 to 16nm).

Bottom Line:   
A single track rider will not be disappointed. This bike delivers a quick, agile and stable ride.

Strengths:    Lightweight for steel. Responsive yet forgiving. Rock-solid construction. Versatile: having the option to set the bike up single speed with rim brakes was a strong seller for me! I'm a sucker for a clean and detailed paint job, too, which this bike (being a VooDoo) invariably represents.

Weaknesses:    I've heard that folks have issues with the sliding dropouts moving. If set up correctly (read: apply Loctite liberally) this should not be an issue. I'm a lightweight rider at 140 lbs., but I've been known to huck my meat off five to six foot drops with no unwanted sliding. In the three months I have had to test this bike, I've found no weaknesses.

Bottom Line:   
The VooDoo Soukri, as was intended by the designers, is a very versatile steed that I would recommend to any of my friends. The majority of my riding is on steep terrain. The frame geometry caters well to my preferred riding style: climb, climb, climb (preferably in rock gardens) until you can't see straight then lower saddle and drop in for a fast decent through swoopy, bermed single-track with some stunts thrown in for added value. The steep headtube angle does keep a fellow on his toes for really steep descents. I have the bike set up with a 100mm travel fork though. Step up to 120mm and I think it would be a more comfortable descender as well. If you want a one bike quiver, the Soukri is a great choice.

Strengths:    **FRAME ONLY**The geometry on the frame is excellent. The rear dropouts are easily adjustable and love the fact that they move with the calipers, so no more tweaking the calipers every time you have to tighten the chain. The steel has no flex to it and it climbs well. I love the paint job.

Weaknesses:    Rear droputs tend to move.

Bottom Line:   
My SE stout was my entry bike and I love it but it was heavy. Decided on the voodo based on a friends recommendation and what a difference. The bike is responsive, the geometry is almost identical to the SE stout so the transition was easy. Although I'm running better components on the voodo the feel of the frame is much nicer probably cause the frame is a lot lighter and tubes are smaller in diameter. I highly recommend the frame, the rear triangle is short allowing you to stand up on steep climbs without skipping.

Frame/fork combo question - Voodoo Soukri/Salsa Maxle Rigid fork

I am looking into the Voodoo Soukri frame to run rigid. My existing wheels use a Maxle up front, so I was hoping to use the Salsa Maxle Rigid fork. Fork length is 468mm. I am worried about the handling and pedal strikes - it is rooty and rocky where I ride. Please let me know your thoughts, an ... Read More »

Opinions please...Soukri vs. El Mariachi

Anyone riding either one of these that can give some insight to their performance characteristics would be appreciated. I've pretty much narrowed my search to these two bikes...my criteria are 29 (of course), steel, mid-range gruppo, $1500-$1700 complete. Rigid or suspension fork, doesn't matter ... Read More »

Voodoo Soukri.....Who's got one?

If you have one of these how do you like it? It replaces the Dambala I believe. There are no reviews on this frame so I thought I'd throw the question out there. I'm contemplating buying one this spring.Read More »
