Aaack! Good Golly Melvin, a FLEXSTEM!!!

Oh my dear boy, where did you lose the way???? :?

You know in your heart that the Hothead belongs on that build. Say it with me now...step away from the mushy stem, step away from the mushy stem. :D

The Hothead is made of moderately thinner tubing, however, it is heat treated to increase the strength and fatigue resistance of the metal...nice unit...belongs on an equally nice frame (BIG HINT!!!).

Looking spiffy...keep us updated.

cheers,

rody

Rody, you very well know what I have in my heart :mrgreen:

No Flexstems for me

The Hothead is indeed an awesome part ...and matching in colour! If it wasn't for that, I had fitted it anyway as the extreme rise required leaves not much room for alternatives. At least, if one doesn't want to go the riserbar route ...and I don't want - of course :mrgreen:

@agrove
This Hammerhead => http://cgi.ebay.com/Vintage-Grove-Innov ... dZViewItem ...ended not long ago :( It wasn't in blue like your HC, but neutral black wouldn't have been bad either - imo.

I think I am going to either have my dad build up a new stem with a little steeper angle, or a hammerhead bar combo...
