O.K. I'm in the process of building up an 18" Black Jabberwocky. I'd love to see some pictures of anyone out there so I can get some ideas. Thanks so much for any help.

Here's one that didn't used to be black

Now it is after I added a little crotch clearance by moving the cable guides for a smaller rider.

DWD how tall are you? I've been told to order a small. I'm 5'9" but do not like the idea of a long stem to adjust cockpit. I know the site says I should get a small, but I'm leaning toward an 18. Just checking to get your perspective since you own and ride one.
Thanks,
Paulie

Paulie....Hey, Todd emailed me yesterday. wants to know if I want a bike. Hey, I will keep in mind what you had said about the Jabber.....Seriously, If you think you may want to unload it after your tear down of the Badger, I may just hold on for a few months. Those Jabber's look pretty cool...I like the frame geometry.
I'm afraid you may become attached to it and may want to keep it in your quiver!
I think I would lean towards the 18 also. I like the longer TT over a long stem myself.
Stand over shouldn't be a problem.
Road Nisene yesterday, did the usual ST. Felt pretty good!
Tone. :D
