The Shed Project // The log bike rack is ready

Here is the latest "upgrade" at The Shed. I picked up a massive 120 kg log at the local lumber yard (well, they actually got it delivered to my house) to create a useful and natural looking rack that will help when I wash the bike and it will also be handy in front of the building just to seat down a bit. 

So, lets see the project step-by-step:

A nice piece of wood

Measure it twice, cut it once

Chainsaw...perfect for the job

Need to cut deep enough though

The unit is ready

Nice & simple

Holds the rear wheel on the left side and the cut off end will be handy to hold the cleaning stuff

Yep, just the was I planned it! :)

Operation Stem Slam // Inverted 17 degrees

I just finished my latest project in The Shed a few minutes ago. I have been searching for a -17 degrees stem for a while and luckily I managed to get my hands on this lovely piece recently. It is not a very common size the least to say, so I am pretty damn happy to see this beauty on the bike. 

Nice & low... just the way I like it :)

So, I fired up the good 'aul woodburner and put on some savage metal music. Oh, and got the stem fitted on the Niner without wasting a single minute!! :) 

Looks the business alright and I can't wait to go for a test ride with the new setup. I'm not sure when that's gonna happen but I'm sure I'll love the agressive low front!
