I'm not actively blogging here anymore. But if you got here because you were searching for something about bikes, you might want to check out my latest project, Vermont Goldsprints. In summer of 2014, I bought a used goldsprints racing setup and have made it a mission to get more bikes in more people's faces by putting on fun races in unexpected places. Come join me!
The Spacers of Adjustment and the Stem of Indecision
I mentioned yesterday that I hadn't finanlized my handlebar height yet- here's what I mean. I may flip one more 3mm spacer below the stem before making the final cut, but this is pretty close. I'm not looking forward to driving the star nut deeper into the steerer, though. I don't own a start nut setterand instead rely on screwing a sacrificial bolt into the start nut and hammering it home carefully so as to keep it straight.
