    Looks like an adjustable stem from a stationary bike used for fittings. Kind of clever when you think about it if you're playing around with your cockpit setup.

    Make sure to ignore the sticker that says "Do Not Ride"

    Best commuter trolling bike I've seen on VS by far. I'm very glad you posted that. Way more interesting than some bored rich mans 15K Winter beater.

    On the other hand, why bother riding a beater when you can ride the nicest one in the first place ? I'm in the life is too short to ride shitty bike camp. I just don't aim at potholes on purpose. The only good thing with a beater: when you ride back the nicer bike it feels like you have better legs.

    Cool little company out of Portland. I didn't know exactly what I was looking for until I saw this and immediately knew I found it.

    Salza Size-o-matic fitting stem. trying this bike on the trainer to see what feels comfy with workwear that I am more flexible than. Cockpit form is pretty important and I cant replicate the same position as my bike that im using technical fabrics for. jeans dont all stretch properly.

    funny story, not sure why but the fork clamp portion of this stem doesn't really tighten that much. didn't even get out of the driveway.

    thanks. Not sure I get the trolling reference. breaking it all down... I bought the wheels second hand, I had the crankset in my parts bin, fenders/seatpost/chain/cassette/cables new and everything else was free. The saddle probably has to go, that tear will eat my fancy pants.

    I dont want to feel bad locking a $5k frame in a community bike rack. free bike will get me past that anxiety since its already full of scratches.

    FWIW, the frame didn't have a derailleur mount so I welded whatever steel one the lbs had to the frame... that's the level that is a commuter bike imo.
    Next welding will be a front rack so when it gets warmer out I dont have a sweaty shirt from carrying my backpack.

    I like to think of doing this as my favor to the community!

    Ive done the nice car thing before.

    Your favor to community just ends up with your nice ownings being dented, scratched and neglected by those who don't really care.
    (think of the guy on an ebike with a cigarette butt hanging out of his mouth as he pulls up to the liquor store. that guy really doesn't care if he rams his 100lb mess into your ultrabike.)

    I just usually don't park my bike outside but I understand what you are saying. I still have a beater I use once every other month when I'm sure I won't be able to park the bike inside, typically concerts, exhibitions but usually I don't go by bike if there is a slight chance I might drink alcohol before going home. Yet I wouldn't want to ride it every day.

    The hardest part about custom frames is the wait. But it's all worth it starting with the day you see this.

    What have you been doing the past 10 days that you can't unwrap a frame? I can't say I have that sort of patience.

    Don't forget to fix ball bearings into all the bolt heads to make it a true lockable commuter bike. The trolling part referred to expecting someone on a fancy new bike to blow the doors off commuters. It is much more rewarding to dash expectations by riding away from fancy bikes on a vintage parts bike. Cat 6 racing is a serious sport. ;)

    Hate to say this but I'm lacking some motivation and time these days. Lost my brother just before Christmas so I've been spending time sorting out all his estate stuff. ��

    My sons birthday present arrived. A 24" Commencal hardtail. And I already have some other bits enroute to lighten it up some. Can't wait to give it to him!

    UPS arrived late so barely had enough time to unpack, snap a photo in the dwindling light, and spray the inside with frame saver.

    Understandable. Sorry to hear about the loss of your brother. Makes lots of things more difficult I am sure.
