Hey Rooney,

I don't have pictures close at hand and that bike is on loan for a while so I can't easily snap new ones. The good thing is that there are lots of discussions on "chainstay dimpling"...

Great looking rides Hi_C! How do you like the 1by setups? I assume the simplicity is nice.

Nice looking ride! Looks like a great all-purpose touring and road pounding rig.

Sweet Gunnar!

I've done this multiple times and start by getting the right bar on the bike then play with the stem, angles, etc. until it feels just right. There is very little chance that you'll...
