Just finished a little stem build for Mike Wurster, a buddy of mine I met through a frame build a couple of years ago, and thought I'd show a few pics of it. Sometimes finding enough stuff to blog about can be difficult so I use what I can. Talking about a stem build is probably pretty boring stuff but actually building a stem isn't that bad. I enjoy doing it and they look pretty nice. I get these components through Paragon Machine Works, top-shelf stuff.
A little custom engraving by Mark from Mainline Awards here in Mountain Home and I'll be putting some paint on it in a day or two.
This stem should be around long after I'm gone, although I'm hoping to be around another 40-50 years. You're looking at this stem a little differently now aren't you. Yeahhhhhh, that's what I thought. Check back to see it after I dip it in chocolate. Man, I ate a whole bucket of chocolate ice cream in two nights. Don't even ask me about the Double Stuff Oreos I made disappear. I'm just thankful that I'm not addicted to anything illegal, not that one addiction is any better than another. I should leave now. chao.
