    I'll join the flock... a sheep in unicorn's clothing here.

    I can't imagine a bike with a better ride than this. It just rips corners and the Faith fork soaks up every bit of chatter. James, Todd, and Paul nailed every detail on this thing and graciously put up with all my phone calls and emails.

    A few build specs:
    16.5-17.5 CS
    70˚ HA
    72˚ SA
    23.5 Eff. TT
    12.5 BB height
    44mm Headtube

    The Faith is set up for me to run fat front and will easily handle a BFL. I will post more picts as soon as I have that wheel built. I can't wait to run this thing with a fatty up front.
    Also big props to the blacksheep crew for tossing in the media etched flask...I guess my old surly would have looked out of place on this rig.

    That is really a slick bike, I freaking love it. Except the cruiser handlebars of course. But, that's just not my style.

    Sheep finally arrived. Built it up rode it around the block and tore it back down. Top tube ended up being 1/2" short and the chanstay length measures between 17.3"-18" with the rockers. Have a brake line just sitting on the frame seeing if it would clear the bikepacking gear and fly rod and it is in the way. Design was to have the cable routed under the downtube or under the stay. Went round and round measuring a Highroller frame as it has been one of the best bikes I've ridden. This one needs a few adjustments.

    Update to mine. Apologies it's a poor quality webcam snap.

    Swapped out the May's for some Ti-Cycles double s-bend Ti bars. Sweep is almost the same, they are a little wider but the reduction in trail noise is awesome.

    Just the seatpost to go now, probably September and I'm thinking a BS Infinite post.

    FWIW James is now on his own (relatively) so I'd expect delays. I sure you'll get a more 1-on-1 experience but I can't foresee how he'd keep up with production until he gets some new talent trained up.

    Just curious on your comment as a huge admirer of BS bikes - he is totally a solo builder now? I just got a Jeff Jones diamond ti with ti truss but thought long and hard about a BS. Just didn't seem like I could lay my hands on one any time in the reasonable future from what I've heard/read about his production. (Nothing bad - just the length of time it takes to get one). Also Adrenaline Bikes no longer offers his frames so that was one less avenue.

    He's solo but hiring new talent from what I heard in Feb. May have changed since. The wait time in the past was due to them not wanting to speed it up as far as I know. Mentality was to make artistic bikes and spend as long as they needed on each one. Hence 18 month wait. If he has revamped his mentality and/or org structure he may be quicker/better but I'm not privy to that.

    The guys that left started their own thing, can't recall the name but I didn't really like their style. Look them up on bikerumor.
