Leb dude, think you may have a design problem that a hack saw will not fix. What are you going to saw off?

Not knowing the entire ITM product line. It appears from what you wrote that you have a threaded fork & head set. Unless you mated a very small frame with a fork (with a steerer tube that is butted) barrowed from a bigger bike, there really should not be anything keeping you from inserting the stem properly. Try cleaning the inside of the steerer tube. If however, this is not the problem, PM or AIM.
Problem was that an old quill was jammed at the bottom of the tube. My mechanic at City Bikes used an upside down screwdriver and mallet to get it out.

Thanks for all the suggestions.

Its been decided, Daibutsusan's design will be used on the front of the shirt, send an email to pirateshirt@spud77.com with size/quantity, email your order soon and i'll be able to get a real price quote, as it is i think they will be around 8 bucks, maybe more maybe less.

Damn, I was hoping to meet some of ya that I haven't met the last few Sundays. But alas, life puked in my lap at 5:00 tonight so I couldn't get to CM. Oh well, next time I guess.

Also if anybody wants a lift to the bike swap tomorrow let me know.

I am buying some more Topeak lights like i have on my Fuji (Cha-ruzu) for other bikes and I know a couple of you were thinking of getting some. theyre great, fit any size handlebar, very adjustable and come off super easy to take inside. if anyone else wants one or two, i'm ordering some may as well save on shipping. probably be 11/each including shipping.

seems there's a mutiny afoot!

if you wanna stop the polo bit, or if 7pm is too early, please say so. i was quite excited for my first polo match in a month and was quite disappointed.

ps- you missed pie too. losers.
ps2- happy belated bday again to the spudster.
Where is the polo?
Is this done on grass or pavement?

why am I up at 6 am in the morning? why am I lugging all this **** to the Capitol mall? Oh yeah, the "Cherry blossom parade, oh yeah, the huge Japanese kites we'll be carrying in the parade. Ok, thats a good reason to keep away from swap meets. thank dog for small favors. If you guys are up in the morning, come wave at us at the front of the parade, and then we'll be flying the monster stuff on the washington monument.

polo is played on pavement at the moment, i'd like to play on grass/dirt a few times.
an alleykitten is an alleycat for beginners and out of towners; also the checkpoints usually have fun challenges instead of just getting your manifest stamped/signed. ch0mb0 has been working on v2.0 for a while, it should be pretty good.
