    Black Sheep Photo Thread - Bring the flock together.

    After a few Mooto-X, a Jones spaceframe, and an Indy Fab, I have ended up with my second Black Sheep. With my upcoming travels, the S&S couplers will be much appreciated.

    Let's see some other Black Sheep. I know that they are out there.

    i agree, plus, a Mones has no such nice touch, though if your posing requires looking like everybody else while riding around town, the Mones is a better choice

    You think Jones invented the blade as well?

    Interesting side chatter about the Jones/Mones/MoneSSheep. Is JJ on to something with his geometry? I owned a Woldhound with the same numbers, so obviously Fred endorsed that.

    Is JJ on to something with the truss fork and sweeping tubes? Some would argue that the sweeping tubes are just for show, and frankly, I am now preferring the evolving renditions by James. Each one continues to be custom.

    If we believe the hype, then of course other custom makers, and eventually the mass produced will follow this trend either in geometry and/or tube shaping.

    I must say that for the type of riding that I use this Sheep for, I prefer it over my old Jones. I was looking for a race-paced SS that was forgiving enough for extended use. In my old age (29), I am enjoying the compliance of the non-truss fork. Would I take it off of 4+ foot drops like JJ does with truss forks? Hell no. I just found a form that fits my function better.

    Interestingly, my Jones was the exact same build; the only thing that has changed is the frameset:

    Squeak, let us know how you like the handlebar.

    Mine did not work for me, but that's my own opinion. They're just garage filler now.

    The bike looks awesome.

    I liked it when I demo'd it. Will let you know when I have more trail time. He's going to make me a one piece bar/stem when I have the reach/sweep/height where I want it. The current setup is a temp.

    Did you discuss it with James? I bet he'd reshape it for you. He's very accommodating about such things.

    I did not discuss it with James. I did what I usually do: I sulked around for a bit then bought something else.

    Now I'm hoping someone just out-of-the-blue asks to buy it from me.

    Here is my other sheep in original form. I have yet to build the frameset up, but I am running through ideas.
