I'm sure there are some . . .

. . . who would ridicule it as "faster backwards," but bravo to you for doing what needed to be done so this guy could enjoy cycling.

The stem extensions are at compound angles that put the bar sides parallel and at the same height, but at different reaches.

That was a fun project.

As someone who might be needing one in my old age, I applaud the work on that stem. Fantastic stuff.

Thanks- I really enjoy them. Lots of little details in a tight little package.

The photos in this thread follow me along from a single car garage through a small progression into a couple of industrial spaces. The current Winter Bicycles (HQ) is in a nice little industrial corner. As I build in I sneak out a few photos.

The lasct couple of stems are under wraps until NAHBS, but I have a couple in the pipe line I should be getting to shortly- keep an eye here!

Custom lug, integrated "spacers":

Hi Eric,

Does something like this help someone to raise their bar height with a short steerer tube, or do you require the steerer to go pretty high up inside this stem? Just want to figure out if a bike can be helped without getting a new fork. Thanks.

Generally speaking- that sort of set up runs a long steerer and simply integrates the spacers (as opposed to making up for steerer tube).

Get in touch directly when it's convenient. Knowing some specifics we can discuss some options for you (off board, please).

You must be good at geometry!

I also thought that was a very cool stem, in fact I think they are all very cool and beautiful!

A few more, just back from plating.

One for a CSI with a heavy brushed/ textured finish:


Brushed for an 9/8" steerer:


A nice and long 135mm quill stem:


And an open face plate stem as part of a suite for a Kirk:

Said Kirk suite: open stem for wing bars, and a modular bag support and low rider set up that pack "flat" for travel with the S&S bike.

Yes, sir. Let me know! Still waiting on the panniers to land, but the bar bag looks great!
