What's better than art? Art one can ride! The entrants just keep getting better. Subtle beauty and inovation. Congradulations on an outstsanding build.

Ideas all over that bike. I really like how they come together. Great color choice.

I really like the upside down stem. I hope you show us how you did it! :shock:

The handlebar mounting is easy enough to explain: at first I just cut a handlebar stem short enough to clear the tire and used the fender mounting threaded hole in the bottom of the fork that normally holds the fender, and bolted to that but it kept moving when I steered the handlebars so I ended up just welding it to the bottom of the fork. just make sure you cut it short enough to clear the tire you are using. Some forks I looked at were hollow and you could insert the whole stem from the bottom with a little bit of grinding on the inside of the hole. Hopes it helps and I made it clear.
