I use VillagePhotos.com, which for a retrogrouch like me is pretty easy to use.

Very nice!!

Only thing I would change is the stem.... Just put in a quill and its perfect (well for me it would be).

Oh yeah. I see that now too. I have a flexstem that mounts on a straight quill.

Actually the stem looks nice. How about making the quill black?

I agree I agree I agree! I actually had a line on a black 1" quill Ringle Zooka with yellow lettering but someone decided to pay way too much for it and I lost the auction. I'm looking for one with a 5-10 degree rise at about 90-110 in length and then will sell this one. This was my alternative as the quill that came with the bike was also not original and required a shim to clamp onto the bars. It wasn't working for me. Let me know if you know where I can locate the stem I mentioned above and I'd swap this one out in a second. Thanks again for the comments!

you want to keep an eye out for an old Salsa stem – suits these perfectly
