    Hmm, yeah... I don't know. It would be The ONLY thing not painted black, blue, yellow, or purple. I have another cool stem that will work. Honestly, I wouldn't want to waste a stem that cool on this bike design. You will understand when it's finished.

    I don't weld, so I used a strip of loctite mounting tape to adhere it to the frame.

    Hmm. I'm not sure I like it. Might look better if it was blue, but I don't think I could match the paint. I might like it better without it. OR, maybe if I ...

    So, a day of riding presented a couple squeaks and groans in the cranks. I guess I could have taken some pics, called it "finished", and then fixed the issues later, but I just couldn't. Put a new bearing cup on the one that was "groaning" and it's back to running smooth and quiet. I also need to adjust the front fender and retune the gearing. Ready for entry.
