Yesterday I did a little custom stem build for Mike's road frame. I used Paragon's stem building supplies because they're top shelf components and make it super-easy, not to mention they make a great looking stem. I basically just have to tack it together, check to make sure its straight, and then braze it up. This one is good to go.
Fresh outta the oven. That face-plate is gonna get a little custom engraving before long.
This dog is beefy. Not as lightweight as these newer aluminum and carbon stems but most definitely built to last a lifetime. Everything is finished now except I'm fixing to go braze a seat lug on and clean that up and then maybe have some photos later this afternoon of the whole thing. Its about time to warm up the paint booth. I don't think thats gonna be too difficult. See ya in a bit.
