    My son's Riddik

    I built a Sette Riddik MTB for my son a few months ago and thought I would share. He loves it. Here is a quick run down.

    Rock Shox Dart 2 100mm travel fork
    Manitou Swinger 4 way
    Shimano Deore group rear/front derailleur and shifters
    Truvativ Isoflo cranks
    Ritchey Headset
    Pivit handle bars
    Pivit Stem
    Pivit seat post
    Weinmann rims w/Pivot hubs
    WTB Speed V seat
    Tektro mechanical brakes

    Can we get a update on how the Riddik is doing, and how he still likes it?

    He hasn't put to much time on either bike. He has ridden it two, maybe three times. He suffered a pretty bad crash back in June where he broke his femur in two places. He just had the rod removed a week before Christmas and was released last Monday.
    I have taken it out a few times and it rides very well. I think the forks will need to be upgraded but for a 13 year old they will do for now.

    Glad he is doing a bit better, and it didn't scare him away from his bike.

    Thanks.
    He is doing much better. He was released last week and we headed to AL for a race this past weekend. His leg didn't bother him at all and had two top 5 finishes out of 3 races. We had a "moment" when he crashed when his motor locked up on him just before a turn. He got up right after the crash but kept bending over in pain... ends up when you slap your hand on the pavement at high speeds in 38 degree weather it hurts like HELL!

    Here is a pic of him

    Anyone know what size the seat post is on the Riddik? PricePoint doesn't have any info on it anymore. Thanks.

    According to the info I have the Riddik originally came with a shim which allowed the owner to use a 27.2 seat post. With out the shim it takes a 30.0 seat post.

    I just ordered a new Race Face Evolve XC seat post and at first ordered it in 27.2 but figured the larger size would be stiffer. The only info I could find was the 27.2 marked on the post it self. I think it's funny that PricePoint doesn't have an archive of the older Sette frames. Thanks for the help. I called PricePoint before they shipped out the seat post and got it in 30.0.

    It's not all that uncommon, Kona uses the size as well. In fact Jenson had closeouts on 243 two bolts a few months ago and now have single bolt EA30 in 30.0 for $7.50. See:

    So after writing PricePoint on Sunday, I finally heard back from them and they said I actually need a 30.9mm seat post. GREAT! I already ordered the 30.0 and will get it tomorrow. Maybe it will fit.

    Let me know how that works out. The information I have on the Riddik states that it is a 30.0 seat post.

    Got the seat post last Thursday. It was the right size. I think I might have to cut the post down by a half an inch though. It might be just a little long and the Riddik frame has that funky bend in the seat tube.

    Glad my info was correct. Make sure if you cut it down that you measure and remark the minimum insertion line.
