    Sycip Double Dribble 29er

    Thank you BROWN!

    My new Sycip Double Dribble two-niner showed up in cardboard today. After a quick showing at the Hand Built Bike Show last week, I was sent my custom frame. As soon as I got off work today I took the frame and headed down to Webcyclery to get it ready for the build. Mark down at web seemed almost as excited as I am as he took the frame, ran a wire brush down the seat tube, installed the seat post, stuck the bike in the stand and slapped on the rear wheel so I could see it spin.

    I did have Mark weigh the frame before any parts were installed and it came in at 7lbs. Before all you weight whinnies start telling me how heavy my frame is please understand that this is not an average size frame. I am 6'6" and 210lbs. The bike is being built tomorrow, I'm hoping pinsneedles makes his way down to Webcyclery while Mark builds up the bike so I can have some "while being built pictures." Here is the only picture I got of the frame, as it was late and the boys at Web were ready to call it a day. Hope you like.

    I'll have to see how well I can ride a wheelie with these big ol' wheels. That's always a nice action shot

    7 lbs aint bad at all. My Large X5 weighs 6.8 lbs with an air shock so 7 lbs is quite good for that bad boy.

    I cannot ride a wheelie on my 29er. I haven't really tried all that hard though. There's nothing like falling on your arse, still clipped in... arhg!

    Brakes are a wonder tool and a defiance to gravitational pull....I see the challenge as finding the center of that fat wheel and then ridin' it out.

    Agreed... I, however, like to keep both wheels either on the ground or off the ground... yes, I fall down alot.

    Great weight, about the same as my Alu VooDoo FS, built much smaller.

    About the Webcyclery shop in that pic...check out the selection brake pads and SS cogs, oh my that's as nice as the frame that will be built there...

    I got mine here in the UK a couple of weeks ago. Sorry it's not a 29er but I thought you'd like to see it anyway. I'll post some more pics in its currently fully built state shortly. It came in at a shade over 6lb, but then it is a 12 1/2 inch frame, 4" travel, colour - split pea.

    Very interesting coming off a 5" travel Titus Motolite. The ML would swallow everything; this doesn't, but as I'm using it for racing now, it's doesn't matter in the slightest. The ML bobbed when putting the power down, but the DD stays rock solid even when standing.

    Like the colour BfE. What is it?

    Dude...that's gorgeous! Can't wait to see build pics. There's a seriously strong SSer around these parts that rides a full rigid Sycip in the same color. Simply gorgeous.
    Why would I need more than one gear?

    Steve-
    The bike took about 10 weeks to receive....not bad

    Yes, 4" of travel

    The color? Well, I call it steel gray metallic. It was a custom color chosen between two different shades of gray, with a metallic top coat.

    thanks for all the posts. I'm stoked to have this bike.

    Quite the contrast in frame sizes between the two frames posted in this thread.

    I realize that one is a 26er but still look at the difference in space between the rocker arms and the top tube on the grey one vs. the greenish one!

    Sweet!! I'm still loving mine (I have the orange Sycip DD29er). I have found that it rides really well when the RP3 is in the fully open position. It matches the plushness of the Reba. I never weighed the frame, but I have mine built to 26.8 lbs, which I think is plenty light (in the recent MB action the Specialized Carbon 7100.00 wonderbike 26er was 26.2 lbs). What geometry did they arrive at for you? Post the complete build please.

    dude, that color is the shizzle! I ALMOST went with that color for my bike currently being built....it was a really tough call. I love it! Can I have it?
