Weaknesses:    welds

Bottom Line:   
I was all ready to give this bike a great review. After many different setups, I had it dialed. Although it was a small bike, it worked great for general freeride activities. However, all that changed when the frame cracked and ripped at the seatstay/shockmount. So much for that. Anyway, it was free, and it rode nicely while it lasted, but I wouldn't buy one.

Date Reviewed: January 10, 2001

Strengths:    This bike is not strong?

Weaknesses:    Tubes, travel, shock

Bottom Line:   
After my 2nd warrantied frame I recived due to snaping the headubes off(I don't use a triple crown!)I was puting the 3rd frame on my stand and the toptube bent becauce of the squeezing of the clamp. How can these frames be so heavy and still brake or bend? Don't buy it. It is not xc bike and it isn't freeride what can you use it for?

Bottom Line:   
Became an even better bike after i replaced the RS super deluxe with a Cane Creek AD10,it transformed the ride.Its good uphill(I'm not) its great downhill and on very technical steep singletrack(my favourite)and it allows me to drag me battered 30 year old body on longer and longer rides.Buy one buy two just buy one.

Submitted by TJ a Weekend Warrior from Mesa, AZ

Date Reviewed: August 4, 2000

Strengths:    Quite active for a unified design. Stiff front triangle. Excellent value for "custom" bike. Don't see three at every trailhead!

Weaknesses:    REAR SHOCK!!!! Rock Shox SuerDeluxe is absolute piece of garbage! I'm on my 2nd or 3rd shock and 5th (?) overall rebuild. Listen me and the mags, these shocks are time bombs waiting to blow...their seals that is. BTW, I'm only 155lbs and ride well within the limits of what a $2500, 4" bike should be able to do. Also, flexy rear triangle ("seatstays" bend when sqeeze brakes) and cheap Titec seatpost (also bent). No seat post QR.

Bottom Line:   
A great bike for all-around riding...from rolly singletrack to tight & technical to urban stair-bombing. This thing came to life with the 4" Bomber (replaced 2.5" Z2), shorter/higher rise stem and some decent tires. Even geared toward the "freeride" side of the spectrum, mine weighs about 30-31 lbs. Not the most active or long travel bike out there, but certainly would carry my recommendation, with exception of the rear shock. When my Canzo gets relieved from full time duty later this year (hello Titus Quasimoto!), it won't be put up for sale. If Voodoo would sh!t-can the Rock Shox this bike would rate higher, but that hunk of crap has to be factored into the value rating :(

Date Reviewed: June 28, 2000

Strengths:    Climbs very well for a FS, and rockets downhill, handling exceptionally well on tight turns and any kind of terrain.

Weaknesses:    None found so far

Bottom Line:   
If you've got the money - and you ride enough to justify spending it (be honest) - this bike deserves a serious look. I got a killer deal on a showroom model, but it's well worth the MSR and then some. I just put it through its paces in the Sierras, and it shredded everything those mountains could dish out.

Submitted by BIG LOU a Cross Country Rider from Wayne (Philly) PA

Date Reviewed: June 26, 2000

Strengths:    This bike is close to my Yamaha YZ-125 Motocross machine!! When I'm not roosting my YZ, I take this VooDoo and thrash it hard and it takes it like a man. I have broken 2 swing-arms and a 1997 CanzoAL Frame, but I ride HARD. VooDoo replaced everything no-questions-asked after thrashing for 2 years. They are a first class company that builds the best bikes out there. Forget about the money, you only live once and ride a few times a week! The 1999 Canzo is sweet looking and better than my 1997. They keep making them better!

Weaknesses:    VooDoo doesn't pat me to ride so I actually have to work!

Bottom Line:   
If you ever rode motocross, this bike is the closest thing to a motocross bike and is just as fun to ride. Buy one without thinking twice.
