    It is the angle at which the picture was taken. Here is another for you.

    Nice ride. From where are you getting the red stem and chainring bolts?

    No, I agree, not uniformly curved, but maybe it was supposed to be that way. Uniformly curved would have probably been quite a bit harder and probably more $$$

    Lovely bike, but that seat tilt makes my back boys scream! The seat is pointing like a foot over your handlebars! I have a huge bar-seat drop, but the seat points only up to 3" above my bars. Interdsting anatomy you must have...super flexible back?

    Actually, if you put a level on the middle of the grips and run a stright line to the middle of the saddle, they are the same exact height. The also measure the same distance from the floor. As for the my saddle position, it is a single speed and I am a masher. If I touch the saddle I am damn happy that I am getting a small rest, before having my next mash session.

    If you are talking about the continuity of the bends from the top tube to the seat stays, they will vary with every bike. The riders size will determine the flow of the bends. I am short, so the bends have to be lower making less of a perfect flow or arch.

    Thanks. I would love to get some action shots but we just had a large Winter storm and now we have a buch of snow. It had all been melted and the riding was great for 3 weeks, so I got in some good riding before I had to put it on hold again.

    Love it!

    Jen Green is wicked cool. I agree that a custom badge is the perfect finishing touch. Love the curved tubes.

    Jen made me this badge for finish off my Strong last fall:

    Yes, measured from the ground there's little saddle-bar drop on your bike, but the seat itself is not level with the ground at all. If I tilt my seat like that, no way my back let alone groin are going to allow me to sit down. Most roadies and even mtb'ers I know use a level to adjust their seats perfectly parallel to the ground and think I'm weird for keeping it point down. I've only seen it point up as much as on your's on BMX and DH type bikes where the bars are waaaay above the seat, and effectively the whole rider is tilted abck over.
    Everyone's different, I like how my forward tilted seat allows my back to totally relax, while working the pedals hard.

    Yep, I see what you are saying, I thought you were talking about my saddle-bar drop. I feel like I slide forward off the nose of the saddle when the saddle is closer to parralel. Everyone I know coments on that, but it is the only position where I feel comfortable. You should see the saddle position on my urban/jump bike.

    That is a great idea. I really like Carl's frames as well. I used to have one, hence my screen name.

    I also slide forward a bit, but that's all pedal pressure I don't have to come up with myself :-)
    I just hold on to the bar and stay clipped in, life is good.

    Nice bike! Would love to have a sheep myself...

    But your front QR looks very dangerous, really easy to hook into something when you have it pointed forward, then you have a great risk of your wheel falling of...

    I seriously love your bike.

    Looking at all your builds helped me pick and choose parts for my new bike. I love the way that one came together, and I bet its just heaven to ride. I want to get Jen Green to craft me a badge, but its for a souldcraft, and the souldcraft s wouldn't make for much of a head badge.

    pretty bike

    Blacksheep is on my short list for my future 29. One question, no water bottle mounts?

    Your 29 is very close to what I have pictured in my head for my future 29. Nicely done.

    Cool. What kind of adhesive did you use to stick it on?

    James recently retrofitted some S&S couplers onto my Seven Ti road/touring bike for a great price, and the worksmanship is top notch. If I ever decide to get a custom Ti bike, Blacksheep will be at the top of my list.

    JB Weld.

    I have used alloy bolts for about a year now, I figure it is unlikely that all four will fail at the same exact time, but if they do, you can say I told you so.

    I don't use water bottles, camelbak only and I like the clean look.

    Your 29 is very close to what I have pictured in my head for my future 29. Nicely done.

    Thanks

    HoSS That's hot, nice build.

    And thanks, It was a pleasure to build and ride. Although it is not complete, I have a set of Industry Nine wheels on order. Red hubs and spokes laced to black Stan's ZTR Olympic rims. I think the wheelset will finish it off, but it seems that something always pops up.
