    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.

    Thanks! Love your double dribble. That fillet brazing and white on white looks sooo nice.
