    SyCip Javaboy....

    The ride is incredible! Nice and comfy on the climbs and smooth on the flats. As soon as you start pedaling it you realize how fast the bike is. The frame is a custom. It can be built for 700c or 26", staright tubing or bent, disc or Canti, whatever you want. I wanted 700c so I can throw some drops on and use it as a cyclocross bike.

    Here is a spec list:

    56cm SyCip Javaboy frame and fork
    Black Phil Wood low flange, flip flop track hubs
    Mavic Open Pro rims (minus stickers)
    Schwalbe Marathon 700X38c tires
    Cook Brothers E-cranks with 42t chainring
    XT BB (107mm)
    KMC BMX chain
    16t Shimano freewheel
    Grafton Speedtrap pedals (minus clipless hardware)
    Mango 1 1/8 Chris King headset
    Ritchey 120mm 15 degree stem
    SyCip "Singles Bar"
    Kooka Racha levers
    Easton EC70 post (haven't decided on which seatpost is going on)
    Brooks Swift Titanium saddle
    Paul stoplight cantilever brakes with moon unit hangers

    Thanks for looking!

    WOW. That color is awesome.

    Nice bike, too.

    Man. I wonder what that would look like with a straight blade fork... Intense.

    Lucky you.

    That is my next bike.

    But with some green Michelin cross tires. (yeah, I am a dork)
    It ain't easy being human.

    It's as great to ride as it is to look at.

    Super Nice....

    I bow to your Java supremacy.....so... if you lock up the brakes and leave a skid mark.... is that Java Script???

    Truly a cool mo-chine, my compliments.

    It's great to have a bike I can ride to lunch on, coffee, farmer's market, etc. Riding the Double Dribble (SyCip FS) didn't seem appropriate. The Diesel is not a good choice because of the gear ratio.

    Thanks guys!

    Good job!

    Right arm. I think it would be perfect for Diedrich's runs, followed by Saturday afternoon bikini inspections on the Laguna boardwalk and at Doheny/Capo beaches by the sand volleyball courts.

    Oh, I'm sure I could find somewhere to ride it!

    Dude...that bike is sweet.

    I want one. Looks like it would be a really nice commuter.

    Great bike...you should get some of those wood fenders if they will fit (and if you need them where you live.)
