A couple of stems

The last month has been kind of busy. What with The Tour to keep me occupied in the evenings there has been no lack of inspiration regarding cycling. Anyway away from the telly I did manage to make a couple of stems. The first one for Tim to decorate the classic road bike that I built for him a couple of years ago. Made from Llewelyn http://www.llewellynbikes.com/stem lugs and polished Tim is still troubled by the desire for a new paint job and exactly what he wants it to look like. So the stem will have to wait for paint untill he makes up his mind

The second one is Fillet Brazed from scratch.Made to suit a threadless steerer and inspired by the beautful work of Robin Mather      http://apracticalguide.wordpress.com/   While it was alot of work I really like it and may build myself one in the future
