Whose The Black Sheep?

A rap group from the early 1990's called the Black Sheep posed a challenge through a song they wrote. The challenge was this "You can get with this or you can get with that" to hear this song (it is clean) click on the link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GlEy3og5smsw.youtube.com/watch?v=GlEy3og5sms

I ran across a bicycle company here in Colorado that goes by the same name- Black Sheep Bikes- http://www.blacksheepbikes.com/. Readers, yall know that I know some funk in bicycle design when I see it and I am here to let yall know that I am not particularly wild about the above design but Black Sheep's use of color is great. Yes, I would have done alot more color coordinating because putting color on the frame would really have made this bicycle pop, but they did well! The rap group said it and I pose the same challenge to you all, "You can get with this (Black Sheep Bikes) or you can get that (another company in there price point)" I'm gettin' with these cats!

Check out the front of this bike. Dang, I have to say what the cartoon character used to say when I look at this "I thought I saw a puddy tat". What I appreciate most about this, is that is it absolutely the 'Cleanest' design I have ever seen, color would have made it stand out, but this is nice. Remember in an earlier post I waxed philosophical on the value of clean design? I just believe all the gadgets take away from the bike.

Black Sheep also have a cargo bicycle (not pictured her-I couldn't find a good pic to post) design on their website that I think yall should check out because I believe Webster's Dictionary should redefine the definition of 'Freak Show' after I saw the cargo design! Dictionary publishers..be down and put that cargo design picture in your dictionary under 'Freak Show'!

I am going to shut up now. To Black Sheep Bikes...keep bringin' it to the marketplace...somebody got to hold down the fort until I get out there :)
