Voodoo’s well received Bizango has seen a bit of an overhaul for 2022 seeing in a host of new kit and a fresh frame. While it has received a bit of a price hike, its balanced geometry and very well considered build makes for a perfect companion to begin your MTB journey.
This year, Voodoo has made a handful of changes to the flagship Bizango’s geometry in order to make the bike more capable but retain everything we know and love about the bike. As such, the bike gets a slightly stretched and slackened geometry but there are a few bigger updates that help futureproof the bike for any budding riders.
Kicking off with that frame, it’s completely new for 2022. This one is triple-butted, comes with a tapered head tube and the top tube gets a larger cross-section to increase torsional stiffness. It now also gets a dropped seat stay bridge and a new chainstay to make the rear end slightly more compliant and offer a bit more space for a fatter tyre; good if you end up looking for an upgrade later on.
Another really smart feature is that the frame is routed for a dropper post, even though it’s not fitted with one out of the box. This is a seriously considerate thought as if you catch the MTB bug after some time aboard the Bizango (which I’m certain you will) you can take full advantage of the plethora of stealth dropper posts on the market.
