    New Sycip Unleaded

    So, it's finally here after months of waiting. And it's soooo sweet. Jeremy did an absolutely amazing job. He really is an artist. It's almost too beautiful to ride. Almost. Tomorrow is the maiden voyage hopefully. But, at least today I determined that I sure do look cool riding it around the block.

    I just need to get the bar height and seat position dialed. Then I'll get the extra large spacer stack situated.

    Anyway on to the photo dump.

    Wow!

    It just doesn't get any more Sycipian than that!

    Congrats!

    You've got some miles to go in order to do that bike some justice!

    Hope to see some photos of that bike on some epic rides.

    Thanks for posting!

    Thanks guys! It really turned out as good or better than I had hoped. The orange looks amazing when the sunlight hits it. The sparkles in the clear coat light right up.

    Chaffer, I definitely need to put some miles in on this bad boy. But, I don't think that will be a problem. I plan on keeping this bike around a long time.

    HardTail29er, I'm hoping the Hope brakes are as nice as everyone says. I'll be figuring that out soon, I guess. I can say just from riding around to bed the brakes in I'm glad I got the M4 / X2 combo, as the M4 has loads of power. I don't think the X2 on both ends would be enough for most people.

    And, in case anyone cares or is wondering, I weighed it this evening and it comes in at a very nice 23 pounds.

    Really nice build!
    Digging that you put real tires on it. Can't stand when people put on XC racing tires with no grip for everyday rides.

    Traction definitely trumps weight savings.

    No, but that would have been a good idea. Jeremy's psychic ability did come close though. Only one year off. It is my wife's birth year, however.

    Hey, thanks TiEndo! I had definitely been drooling over them for awhile. Divorce and castration may not be so bad for the right bike. Besides, you have that swanky Lynskey crusier to make everyone jealous.

    Very nice. Love their new dropouts. How are your shifters mounted? Is there some do hickey you can buy to match SRAM shifters w/ Hope levers?

    Avid/Jagwire Tube-Tops. Come with their cable kits (Ripcords, Hyper, etc).

    Can also be purchased separately.

    Check your LBS, they probably have a bunch.

    Thanks! Hope makes shifter mounts for their brake levers that you can buy separately. I think they were around $25.

    What FKMTB07 said. They're jagwire tube tops. They come in brake line and shifter cable sizes. I think I bought them at Universal Cycles, but I imagine they'd be pretty easy to find anywhere online.

    Nice!!!

    Celluoid Hero, that's one sweet-looking Orange SyCip. I really like the rear dropouts. I spoke to Jeremy at Sycip about a month ago and he said that he can custom make me a frame that can handle a 100mm suspension fork.

    my buddy just got those brakes- were you suprised by their size? The resivior and rest of the lever hardware is surely machined beautifully. But they are pretty beefy in real time.

    comments?

    THREAD RESURRECTION!

    Thanks, Rootsandrocks! I think Jeremy should be able to do a 100 mm corrected frame without a problem. Mine is corrected for 80 mm, should I ever get the itch to put a suspension fork on it. He is usually way overloaded, but still faster than most builders at getting you your bike.

    Yeah, I love the dropouts and all the little details that he puts into his frames.

    Get your name on the list and order one up! I think you'll love it. I've certainly enjoyed mine.

    The Hope reservoirs are for sure a bit big, but I don't really notice it. With the matchmaker clamps my X.O shifters tuck neatly under them and give a really clean look on the bar. What I notice most is the lever feel and lever shape. Very comfy and solid feeling. I even got rid of the Magura Louises off of my other bike to replace them with M4s. They are most certainly pretty and work very well.

    SPARTICUS: Thanks! I was trying to keep it clean and simple.

    URBIKSUX: Jeremy sure has a good eye for things.

    MCSTUMPY: Yep, the pennys are definitely one of my favorite little touches Jeremy adds.

    Thanks! Yeah, Jeremy does a segmented fork. I think it's a couple hundred more than the unicrown version.
