First one

First post under the new name calls for another first-my first stem!

I decided it's about time I made one.

This next bike I'm doing will be a fixed gear with a blued finish. The finish will allow you to see the brass fillets in the joints, so I thought a matching stem would look appropriately bitchin.

I still need to narrow the bar clamp a bit, but it's done otherwise.

Now to go see if I can bring all the old posts over here....this may take awhile.

Late edit: so far, so bad...can't bring in the old posts yet. In the meantime, I've added a link to them on the sidebar.


  1. Sweet! Congrats on a great, new name!
    The bike you made for me is parked inside right now, where I can see it. What a great, freaking bike!


  2. Alright...when I come to my senses...and want a mountain bike...your the guy...I need the "I graduated high school with your wife" discount though.;-)

  3. Thanks John!

    OK Dave, we can work that out. The "LLHS" discount is in full effect- of course, there might be an "ultra-marathoner" upcharge cuz we all know you guys are bit off-center! ;)

  4. Looks great, can't wait to see the final frame blued.
    Is there a "I sold you the bike that you broke and then started building your own frames" discount, or does that mean I pay extra? =)
