    new Sycip SS 29er 120

    I don't get on here much but wanted to share my experience with Jeremy Sycip, the builder of my new SS 29er 120. I came to him wanting an AM style SS to ride when it's too wet for the linkages of my Ibis Mojo. I also wanted to finally build a 29er. I knew I wanted as much travel as made sense, the shortest chain stay length and generally a stout bike to handle the technical ascents and steep downhill that I enjoy riding.

    What he delivered blew my mind! After hours of discussions, he patiently took my ideas and thoughts and made them into something more than I had expected was possible. Perhaps I'll go into the details of the geometry and complimenting component selection later but I wanted to throw a huge thanks to Sycip for accommodating my demanding wishes and handing me one truly badass bike that I'll enjoy for many years to come.

    Thanks!

    44mm headtube, dropper post, chain guide, and Nobby Nic tires. Yep, that is a great AM singlespeed!

    Nice ride, but I don't get the point of a chainguide on a singlespeed specific rig.

    The chain guide is so I can run 1x9 later. I left it on for the initial first ride chain stretch and will put it on a shelf until I'm too slow to pull SS. I'll leave the bash guard on to save the chain in the gnar.

    I don't single or 1 x anything but if I did it would be on something like that, stay dirty my friend.
    This may be a total waste of time but I can't help but think that you might amount to something someday.

    Cool bike! I've been considering a Sycip and this moves me one step closer.

    Nice Sycip! I was looking up information on the Diesel and came across your post. Any updates on your bike?
