A Longer Stem

The finished product
I drilled and tapped for a couple of M5x0.8 screws to fit this water bottle cage. (Coffee on the way to work...). I made the stem a little longer than I needed, so it's down about 3/4" from its highest position. This project was a great success; between this stem and the telescoping seatpost, the bike is a perfect fit.

I forgot to note, since the original wedge and bolt are removed, I drilled and tapped for an M10 stainless button head screw to plug the hole. You could also get a cap from your local home or hardware store.

Actually not, the welding and added part is all in the part inside the fork. If I put it all the way up, a tiny corner unchromed shows, but it's filed off and greased so it isn't obvious.

And then you had the whole thing re-chromed? Looks very good.
