Cheers guys :D

al-onestare, I know what you mean, a Kona always looks better with p2's, but as this is a special frame I wanted something a bit more exotic, hence the Black Sheep.

BobCatMax, I've still got the p2's, they're back in the spares pile, i.e. the loft, but they were off a smaller frame so the steerer was always about 15mm short.

I agree. It's nice to see a change of pace rather than the, dare I say, "cookie cutter" builds of P2's and XTR M95x. Black Sheep does wonderful work with Ti and that frame is certainly worthy. Maybe throw on a (slightly shorter) Black Sheep stem to tie the front end together? BS handlebars too? None the less, it's a great build you have there.

A couple of recent-ish pics. I have a shorter stem waiting to go on. I'm toying with the idea of changing the wheels to m950/grey 517s, and the USE ti seatpost to a Moots instead.
