    Looks like yours is almost as high as his, but it might be a few mm shorter...

    .Pit Steelers. that is a smokin' little package deal you got yourself there for the price! diggin' the S&M colors on the headtube.
    ...that is one super chub short stem though, wow, and your bars are even pulled back a bit too!



    crazy stuff about that guy snapping his steerer... bad combo of alu. steerer and too much leverage I guess.... Maybe he needs some 5" rise cruiser bars so he can keep trying turn-downs!

    Great build for $600. I agree on the lowering of the stem a bit. Maybe get some Bada Bing 3" bars when you get the funds to get the bars back up to your prefered height.

    Crazy about those pics on spokejunkies - one of the reasons I like low stems and high bars - although I think his situation is pretty rare. And to think those are 3" rise bars - I think you are right Satori - he might have to get some 5" cruiser bars. I don't want to derail this thread too much but here is a pic from way back in 2000 or 2001 of a BMW I had w/ 4" Big Cheese risers bars and a S&M Redneck stem.

    Thanks for the comments, yeah iv'e decided im gonna take the steer down a bit and at some point get a little higher rise bars. Yeah the stem is small it's a 30mm SIC,. Why? Dans comp is the best quick shipping and good prices. Iv'e got a question regarding the fork, well i could not find a pipe that fit over the steer tube so i banged the race on with a hammer. In the procces is put nicks into the steer tube not deep or anything but is this something to be worried about?
