    My original plan for seat mounts didn’t work out.. but this stem in the seattube will work as a mounting point for the seat and a good spot to mount the shifter.. it will all make since soon.

    Love the use of stem for the seat mount. Have you looked into a SoftRide stem for some suspension action?

    The Miller is perfect for this bike but my fav is the Newman livery.
