    i was thinking, that it would look better when it oxodises, it would stand out a lot more.
    that is why i was thinking of the reverse. so the whole stem will be polished except for the blasted cutouts.
    just my thoughts mind........

    The thing is the polished part will dull down if I let it oxidise, as well as the blasted bits, so it might end up standing out less... but yes I agree it would look good the opposite too, I can always do another one to see.

    @celadon, that looks pretty damn good.
    might be better reversed, because the blasted bits will oxodise in time.

    Cheers, yeah I was gonna do it the other way around, but that required more polishing, and I couldn't be bothered, especially getting in all the 'crooks and nannies' with a huge polishing wheel. I'm gonna try rattle can clear coating it, hopefully that will lock in the surface so it doesn't oxidise and dull... maybe.

    that looks great dude. must have taken u ages to cut out the masking tho?

    took an hour or two, quite fiddly, plus I'd had a pint... of baileys

    I done made my stem all purdy...

    I was a bit bored, so I did this as an experiment, polished up the stem a bit, cut some masks out with a stanley knife from masking tape, bead blasted the stem, then peeled it off... et voila, rococo FTW

    Bad phone pics FTL

    These may be a little OTT, but man they're tasty...

    I done made some powergrip-alikes

    I'll have a proper go with them tomorrow, though a run up and down the road felt promising. Bag-strap material, doubled over (lengthways), machine stitched and bolted on.
    I've got a feeling I might have to add a quill to my pedals so I can flim em over

    maybe just cut your foot in two!
    might need to be a tad thicker, spread the pressure

    I recently Knocked these up, haven't had a chance to test them out yet, but they certainly won't cut your foot in two, they're hella beefy. Just need some washers yet to strengthen the holes a little, although it's pretty damn strong seat belt with holes melted through to seal the fibres.

    also, maybe to do with the choice of lockring and or sprocket, not butting up against each other properly, from what I gather, thats not the place to save money. I heard someone else on here say their sprocket kept slipping, then they forked out for a better quality lockring and it was fine after that.

    I recently used the example of a spirograph to explain epicyclic motion / precession to someone.
    It explains why each pedal threads in an opposite direction but not how you might expect...
    They also looked suitably bored.

    Aaah that's why.

    twasn't that boring... I would say more humdrum... make that lackluster... no no no errr make it something else out of a thesaurus.

    Dibs on anything hippy ever offers, because thats the only thing he hasn't dibsed, unless his dibs counts for that aswell, but then he'll never be able to sell anything thing because it would be a paradox which will destroy the time space continuum.
