    Sycip Double Dribble?

    Hey any DD owners out there? If so, pics and build specs would be most appreciated as well as riding impressions.

    Been contemplating for some time getting one built up and just need a little nudge over the edge....

    Thanks!

    Sorry I should have clarified...not the build spec's on the frame but wondering how owners have elected to build the frame using select components.

    Nice ride!

    components will always be a personal choice...

    depending on what components you choose can also determine how light your bike will be.

    we just chose a straight up XT gruppo, you can order them as a complete kit, the only thing it does not come with are fork & pedals.

    you can also order different type of gruppos (LX, XT, XTR, Sram) or hand pick the super light components.

    I did this many years ago to my Sycip steel hardtail frame, I hand picked the lightest possible parts, it was pricey but ended up with a 20.4lbs MTB bike with front shocks.... It was fun to ride...

    good luck with your choice of bike... you can not go wrong with a DD , very well made and built my only one person, attention to detail, alignment, powder coated paint job, and a ventana rear end are great = an awesome ride.

    Hope this helps

    My DD Review

    I have had my DD for a year and I love it!
    It climbs and descends like a true 4 bar linkage bike should. I opted for the Quad bearing option in my 5" travel frame. Sure it increased the weight but makes the rear end very stable.
    I use it primarily as a All mountain bike, occasional jump and drop, rock garden whatever.
    This bike has handled what ever I have dished out and no complains.
    As far as the parts I chose; I went for durability and preference not light weight. I think my DD tips the scale at 29lbs with DH tires.
    Componet list includes:
    Marzocchi All mountain1, Fox RP3 rear shock, CK headset, Kore seatpost, bar, stem and pedals, Hayes 6" disc brakes, Selle italia saddle, SRAM Xray 8spd shifters (old but my favorite) X9 rear shifter and Shimano XT front. Race Face XC cranks and Ritchey Wheel set along with MIchelin Wild grippers(2.25) with the DH casing.
    I hope this helps you decide to buy one. I have a Sycip Ti hard tail as well and I love them both.
