Vassago JabberWocky

Vassago JabberWocky

Compared to its namesake, the Vassago JabberWocky is about as down-to-earth as one can get. It’s a high quality 4130 steel Utah-designed 29er frame. Vassago has been producing the JabberWocky since 2005, so they’re obviously doing something right. Chris Ronan was attracted to this frame for the same reason I was: it’s a perfect mix between the bikes from the good ol’ days of mountain biking with all of today’s refinements.

Chris was finding cycling a difficult addiction to give up and, after a 15 year hiatus from the racing scene, was astounded by the technological progression bikes have undergone. “My goal with this bike was to build a bike that strongly celebrated the old school of dirt riding but with the core features I would have killed for back in the day,” Chris says. “While suspended bikes are awesome and provide a smooth ride with the ability to go hard over the bumps, my goal was to build a bike made to ride hard and that would make me feel like I was riding my Bridgestone MB2 from years past.” Sounds like the ultimate dirty fun bike. Special thanks to Chris for the fantastic photography.

    Looks like some kind of crazy fun.

    Looks like a seriously fun machine! It really is hard to beat one speed, nice tubing, and wagon wheels. I have to say, though, that the EBB on my Niner (and its vertical dropouts) remove the challenge of setting up your rear brake caliper, readjusting for chain stretch, etc. 
    I love that fork crown design.

    Nice, but… plastic cable ties? Come on…. are we on “thereifixedit”?

  • Chris Ronan

    Good point on the plastic cables. I will replace those immediately.

      Heh, maybe my post could look a little rude, but it was a pity to ruin a nice bike like this with plastic things…
      Good work! :-)
