    Folding ahead stem on my BF tikit

    That's an adjustable stem with a quick release instead of the original M7 bolt. I got the idea and details from WK on the Bike Friday Yak.

    Sweet. Where did you find the ahead adjustable stem that swiveled 90 degrees? Your stem looks lighter than the one I'm using.

    The only one I found here is made by Satori sold under the name Genetic. I am happy with the deep teeth of the adjustable stem, however.

    perhaps you mistook the "are you a wizard" image as an insult. it was intended as a compliment.

    come to think of it, now i'm recalling those times you asked me for information and i took time out of my day to be your free internet intern and provide you with data. you never even said thanks. and now you're calling me a dickhead.

    i guess i should hope to live to be as old and grumpy as you.

    Is the quick release firm enough for holding the stem? I thought the joint is heavy-dutied.

    It can hold up a seatpost through friction. With interlocking teeth, I suspect that it is quite a bit more resistant.

    My first thought was to use that type of quick release stem to point the bar up and then use a quick release to lower the adjustable stem mast. But a few measurements convinced me that I wouldn't be able to lower it enough on the tikit with any bar that had forward extension.

    You mistook an internet meme as an insult. You owe this gentleman an apology.
