    Post on their Fabook wall, instagram thread, and Twitter. They have 1000+ followers, are active on detailing new builds, and will respond.

    I dont believe that they have a Facebook account since Todd left.
    If they do, I cannot find it.
    They have 1 post on their Instagram account from about 2 years ago and the Blacksheepbikes on Twitter does not appear to be them either.

    African Sheep

    Think it's time to post mine.

    First and only Black Sheep on the African continent. A very long wait, but oh so worth it. Hard to be objective having dropped this kind of money on a bike, but I really do love the ride.

    I'm too soft for rigid fork to suspended it will stay. Build:
    RS Revelation 120mm, Middleburn Uno crank, Chris King cog, BB and headset, Chromag Trailmaster Ltd saddle, Carver 730mm ti bar, Spank stem (ugly as sin, will change to Thomson) Ergon Bioleder grips, Hope X2 Tech 3 brakes, Spank Oozy Trail 295 rims on Hope hubs.

    Pics from Mankele Bike Park, South Africa...of the finest trails in the country!

    Finally got mine back after Todd from Moonmen went and visited James on my behalf.
    I know someone else who has basically given up on ever seeing his bike again after James has had it for almost 3 years with zero communication.

    If mine breaks again it will go to the scrapyard and become landfill.

    That's crazy. I know a guy who just had his worked on by James, had it back in 2 weeks. I was hoping things had changed for him but sadly it still sounds like he can't manage the business side.

    Listen! Black Sheep Highlight - California

    Was able to work with Ryan and Todd of Moonmen. The nicest ti bars I ever done seen. Shortly thereafter, completed a transaction with wyoracerx to acquire his ol' SS highlight frameset. Assembled to my specs and have been riding it in the foothills of Mt Diablo to great pleasure. A few weeks ago, said hello to James and son, Black Sheep at NAHBS Sacramento. Last weekend, hit the local Nifty Ten Fifty 15-24% pitches - on the SS, and in Birkenstocks. The kitted out spandex pseudo pro, shiny legs and all, grunting and heaving with a full plastic bike 1x11 pizza pan 42T beat me to the top by a dozen seconds. He can have -whatever it is- first =) Deuces.

    got my luna vista a while back, and was well worth the wait & money! James got my bike to me ahead of schedule and returned all of my calls and e-mails in a prompt professional manor. i wouldn't hesitate doing business with black sheep, and could see another bike in my future .

    Thanks, James!
    Nice! I'm anxiously, eagerly and impatiently waiting on my Sheep. Hybrid between a Stellar and a High Roller - twin top tube with a tank tube. 29+, Eagle drivetrain, I9 BC 450 wheels and Maxxis DHF/DHR 3.0 tires and a bunch of Porcelain Rocket attached to it w/ hidden bosses. Will have a second 'fat' wheelset at some point soon.

    It's been awesome working with James and he's put up with my back and forth ideas and numerous changes. Tons of emails and then a few phone calls to dial it all in.

    Can't wait!

    I had an issue with a Blacksheep dropout. Emailed Blacksheep stating the bike was older and I bought it used. They said, "no problem." Not only did they fix the problem for FREE but polished the frame and sent it back within 2 or 3 weeks ...don't recall exact timeframe.

    Yep, if you are local or lucky that happens.
    I know someone down here in Australia that James has basically completely forgotten about and that the owner has given up ever seeing his frame ever again.
    James was not willing to fix it for free a second time and so this guy was going to pay for a new frame, but just cant be bothered dealing with Jame's sh1t.This guy's wife's Blacksheep also broke and is now hanging in their shed.
    If mine ever breaks again it will become landfill.

    Pretty much how my story went down. After it came back from break #2 with a chunk of Ti plate welded over the crack, I sold it to someone in Italy. I believe that they just wanted to put it in their bike shop as a museum piece. Probably best.

    So good. Waiting on finished frame bags and a dropper and we're ready to roll! The build had it's up's and downs and that's all part of getting a hand made frame. I wouldn't have it any other way. Huge thanks to James, Corbin, and Tarryn!

    I had trouble with James a long time ago just for a ti seat post order. I would never deal with him again.

    Such a bummer. You usually think ti is as a long term investment. Sorry to hear about your crack.
