    16 inches?

    make sure you have room for grips, brakes, and a stem in there. it might get cramped.

    You could just attach a suicide knob to the steerertube It might be a bit twitchy and fast technical descents

    In retrospect, I wonder why he didn't just carry a hacksaw instead of a 2x4.
