- It's lighter.
- Lance did it.
- A lot of pro crossers do it.
- If you crash you've only got one brifter to f*ck up, not two.

But I'll let 12XU give you his reasons

Awww, jeez. This could take time.

EG Bates track bike

Stoopid Chopper

G/F's Mercian

1940 HR Bates BAR, being built to switch between 4 speed Sturmey Archer FM hub gears, and fixed (this is the before shot. As yet, there is no after). The second photo is of the type of bars I need. Help someone!


Chrome single speed - unknown brand

Falcon SS Urban Assault project - 26" wheels with widish tyres.

Raleigh Royal tourer. Now with saddlebag removed, and a hitch for my trailer in that position instead.

Housemates 1957 BSA 3 Speed

Raleigh Gran Sport, being rebuilt as a fast, good weather Randonneur, with a Wrights leather saddle, saddlebag, and the moustache bars you see here.

Gazelle Trim Trophy road bike. Now with Campy Chorus Look pedals. This is my fast road/training ride

Nigel Dean fixed conversion

Gorgeous old Dawes Galaxy, 90% converted to the prettiest english 3 speed ever. Going to ride this one in a tweed jacket, smoking a pipe.

And finally, my Raleigh 20. I do have a tandem as well, that I don't have a pic of yet.

All, the stem rise on the Basso is here to stay. Despite its funkiness and original position as a joke, it works wonderfully and gives me all day riding comfort and criterium sprintability.

The one DT and STI shifter idea came to me when I realized that in a touring/cross situation I would hardly ever shift in the front. I wanted to go with both downtube shifters and still might if I do more touring than cross. DT or bar-cons are simply a better choice over integrated levers, not to mention less expensive.

Sniks, I guess it's just the attitude that comes along with my perceptions of you California/west coast hyper consumerists. Your (collective) lifestyle is a caricature and it makes me wonder if the hipsters in your state as a whole is on the brink of going bat**** crazy from all of the one-upmanship.

That's all fine and dandy, but the question remains: is that the same Salsa stem I used to own? If so, did you just have a long-ass section of pipe welded on or something?

I totally don't mean this as an attack, but doesn't this kinda mean that a funny bike isn't for you?

It's called a stem riser and is the perfect solution to a too small bike. The existing stem fits into the stem riser which in turn fits into the head tube. No worries, your stem is still intact.


Spud: Good choice. That Raleigh set me back $20. Some guy brought in the complete bike and had no idea what to do with it and was willing to donate it when a silly employee of ours suggested that he sell it on consignment for that pithy amount. Well, when I first walked in, I thought it was a 531 or 753 team bike, but that was quickly allayed by the fact that it had some pretty mediocre componentry. Oh well, I needed a fenderable bike anyway. So, I spent the night stripping it down and building it up with my own goods. For a hi-ten frame (it's actually a replica of the team bikes), it weighs a surprisingly light 22 lbs. I would imagine that if I put all of this on a modern steel frame, it would be under 20. I only have two problems with the bike as it stands. First, the seat tube angle is so incredibly slack that it feels like I'm pedaling a cruiser. Second, the top tube is LONG (57.5 CtC) when compared to the seat tube (54 CtC). This makes for a large saddle to stem drop that I'm going to have to fix with a Technomic stem, although I'm on the hunt for a completely different frame altogether.

Sammy posted some pretty sweet rides, so keep them coming!

Not at all, I love riding down without the riser, but considering some of the weird things people do to their bike set-ups on this forum alone, adding a stem riser is hardly one of the most flagrant marks. Most people would think that a Technomic stem with its healthy amount of exposed quill is indicative of a poor fit, but others will tell you quite the opposite, rather that slamming your stem down to the top of the head tube is frivilous and done for some misguided appeal to the aerodynamic aesthetic. I would say that pursuit bikes should never be ridden on the street, but I'm a sucker for inexpensive frames built with high end steel and who doesn't want to be unique?

well I don't live in California or the west coast so............
one uping hhhmmmmm maybe. but part of the fun and I ride all of my bikes for different moods, but mostly the fixed now. its alot like bmx only I'm an adult and not a broke kid with a broke a$$ mom, so now I buy whatever I want no hold bar.

see you pass judgment and assumed I was from california and you were wrong, I think that ever jacob is from texas( they just want everything bigger)

why bother calling us ***** and passing judgement on us? we don't do it to you. all the people you named build bikes because they love them and have a blast doing it.
and I have never heard them (the people you named) really talk bad about or judge anyone unless defending themselves.

so really who's in the wrong here?
us because we build alot of ridiculous bike(even though you have more bikes)
or you for judging how we spend our cash?

ps my bike can be up your bikes
