I donít love the stem but it does make the small frame useable. It looks goofy in my opinion, which is only magnified by the high sitting bar bag. I would like to get the fenders figured out. Iím weighing the options of leaving them as is, paint, powder coating, or another option could be using 3M vinyl wrap that has reflective qualityís which could also have multiple colors or patterns like paint and also could be redone where paint would be a bit more work. I bought some samples and while the color is close it doesnít match to my liking.

Close but the flakes are smaller and reflective qualities are much different. It looks darker in the dark and lighter in the light, matching perfectly or even close may not be an option but I could use the silver that the bike is accented with. Maybe Iíll give it a shot anyway. Itís not terribly off.
22 1/2 is my size! Lucky find.

Hopefully it fits well, otherwise I’ll be shopping a 24 and they seem a little harder to come by. I’m excited to get one done and dialed though. Riddle and Golden in this thread have really done some beautiful work, and there’s a few others that are outstanding.
