It’s no surprise now, Voodoo is coming back. Under the direction of Joe Murray and Daryl Roberts, the brand is making its comeback and is in the process of ramping up operations. Since Interbike last year, we’ve seen a number of new models pop up which blend vintage Voodoo character with modern designs, and now they’re adding another gravel bike to the mix.

Called the JuJu, the bike is essentially a titanium version of the Rada which allows for 700c x 45mm tire clearance, though the bike will be stocked with 40mm tires.

Running 12 x 100 and 12 x 142mm thru axles front and rear, the frame also sticks with standard post mount brakes instead of flat mount. Additionally, the bottom bracket sticks with the tried and true approach with a 68mm threaded shell. Voodoo says the bike is about a month out and will sell for $1625 for the frame, or $1895 for the frame and carbon fork.

If there is a size that fits me this could be a nice option. I’ve got an RLT now from the first year of their production but I’ve always said when it came time to replace the RLT I was going to go titanium.

I wish it had a ti fork too.

I’ve wondered about ti forks myself. You don’t see many of them, and it seems that cost is the first reason anyone brings up. But hey … ti ride and longevity could make the cost worth it.

Why the post-mount brakes? It’s obsolete out the door.

“Obsolete?” I don’t see why. SRAM sells post-mount road hydraulic disc brakes.

Nothing stopping you from using any post-mount Shimano MTB brake caliper and pairing it with Shimano hydraulic-brake STI levers either. Compatibility already proven.

It’s far from obsolete. I much prefer fine-tuning a caliper with post mount over flat mount.

Flat mount can be used with an adaptor. Even on a flat mount fork you still need an adaptor…

Voodoo had the best logo graphics in the bike biz. I don’t understand why they changed that for such a boring font.

I will always have a soft spot for VooDoo. Great to see Joe Murray giving it another go. This is a nice looking ride.

On a fully loaded bike with toasted pads the post mounts are easier, much easier to access and to replace pads,just pull the pin from the OUTSIDE. Posts are also much easier to center, I have 2 bikes with flat mount and multiple with post, there is a difference all for what? Well the new flat mounts are much sexier, but gotta pull the wheels to get at the pin heads or have a very long wrench to go thru the wheels, pita. Just another stupid standard by shimano that does nothing better technically, just to make someone in the company feel important with an application of their imagination.

No word on where the frame is actually made?

Butted tubes, or straight-guage?
