Strengths:    This frame and fork easily allows Kenda SB8 2.35" tires. The front end is lightning quick using a 100mm fork. The carbon rear end is unbelievably comfortable. The red finish is stunning. The 17" size weighs 1535 gms. You can use disc or V brakes with the removable posts. Its a real Voodoo!

Weaknesses:    None so far

Bottom Line:   
This review is for a Voodoo Sobo scandium hardtail frame.
Since it wasn't listed I decided to put it here anyway.

This is the best hardtail frame I have owned. The Trek OCLV was nice, but not as comfortable and I was paranoid about breaking the BB shell. I ride this metal bike with confidence. The 100mm front end with the new Sid actually goes where its pointed. I have a comfy hardtail with real MTB parts and big phat tires that weighs well under 22lbs. I regularly ride 40 miles and even with the WTB rocket V saddle have yet to experience any butt pain. If you can afford the extra thousand for full carbon have at it by all means, but for the price I paid I would pick this and not worry about riding an eggshell.
