    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.

    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?

    BfE/Ventana owners (maybe I should post to the Ventana board) - one question. Do you find the rear triangle a bit tight when inserting the rear wheel? It's a bit of fight getting it in there, and I was wondering if this was normal with Ventana rear ends. Funnily enough, a mate of mine has just got an IF Ti Deluxe and he was saying the same thing.

    FYI - HA 71 degrees, SA 74. TT 22 inches. BB height 13.25 inches, heat tube length 3 1/4 inches.

    IBIKEAZ - I want some hi res pictures of your DD, please.

    Yes, that is normal. Tolerances are tight at the dropouts.

    Good job! It's built to the tilt

    Sorry for the crappy pics, way too early for me...
    I should have stuck around to watch Mark test ride it without the saddle, which is at Jason's house...
    It's a big bike, use Marky for contrast.

    Pushin' through at the bone factory

    Thanks for the pics Dawg. That should help me push through the rest of my work day. That pic of Mark steping through the front triangle......too funny.

    Hey, are we doing a night ride? I've got all of my gear in the car, Let me know.

    Now that's my kinda frame... At 6' 5" myself, I'm curious what the dimensions are - particularly the standover. I've got a Curtlo/Ventana FS 29er coming soon (I hope).

    Shiggy- I make most people look small......

    Klyde-
    I will let you know about the standover as soon as I take some measurements. I have a 38" inseam, so my standover will most likely be more than yours. I was thinking of going Curtlo (can't beat the price), but I met with Jay Sycip in Bend over the new year. Being that Jay is married to a friend of a friend I decided to go with the Sycip.....No complaints.

    All built up!

    This is not a great picture, but the bike is together, and it runs great. Pinsneedles and I took a little night ride to see how the new steed would run. We did about a 15mile out and back ride with a bit of single track, frozen double track and a little asphalt. This bike will take some getting use to, but with a couple of minor tweeks the DD will fit like a glove.

    Big thanks to the Sycip brothers for the sweet-sweet frame, and to the Webcyclery crew (especially my mechanic) for getting me what I wanted and building it up so dang fast, from box to built in < 24 hours.

    I will have better pictures with in the next few days. I need to figure out how to use my camera. Some of you guys make the picture taking look so easy.

    Nice bike:)

    The bike builder you had is a really good wrench. Ask him if he remembers a girl named "Frankie" that he rode with when he lived in Philly.
    Good luck with the bike. I love the 29er thing!!!

    Truth be told he is a good mechanic.
    If only he had a personality
    I lived in Philly back in the early eighties, didn't know him then but we went to rival H.S.s

    Set @ 80mm

    Soup-
    yes, the fork is set to 80mm. No, that is not the way I designed the bike, but I thought I would try it out at 80 right now, then switch it up after a number of hours. I have been riding a 26" wheel steel hard tail (Fat Chance: Yo Eddy) for the past 6.5 years. I need to adjust to only a few changes at a time as to not over load my mental to physical capacity

    Frankie-
    I dated a girl name Frankie once, but she wasn't from Philly and didn't ride bikes. I will certainly let Mark know you recognived him in the pictures , and like Pinsneedles said, you should come to the west coast and ride some day. We have fun here

    Here are a coulple of pics to go with the post. I think I need to either drink less coffee, or purchase a tripod to capture the pictures I am looking for
