Strength:

strength, compliant ride quality, looks (IMO), loves to be run SS - doesnt really suit gears, custom for my size and needs - so much fun

Weakness:

sticker decals are ugly and at times l dont feel worthy.

I had this built up really strong to handle my size and James has done an amazing job to ensure the strength needed but also to retain to smooth / compliant ride characteristics. It is such a pleasure to ride and l dont find that l get sore or tied on this HT frame. I am a big guy and dont ride gently and this BS handles everything beautifully. It represents an investment l know l will treasure for many years as all my other frames come and go - this Sheep will remain in the flock. The best money l have spent in the past 20 years and James is a master builder/artist/CS

Strength:

With a stable of bikes to choose the Blacksheep High roller is one of the more fun rides in the mix. When out on tight twisty single track or an occasional jump or two the Highroller really shines. The frame was built up custom with an EBB and short CS making the bike really perform. Bike has survived everything I’ve thrown at it and continues to impress with each ride.

Weakness:

Perhaps rear tire clearance, but then again I’m attempting to wedge the largest 29er tire on the market in there.

As Blacksheeps are custom bikes they will all have a unique ride. As for my Highroller I enjoy the bike quite a bit. Over the past 3 years of riding this frame I can honestly say that James can craft one heck of a bike.
