It now sits flush with the shoulder that will hold the bearing cone.

It is nice and snug, I don't have any fear of separation when fully assembled. But just in case, I can anchor with a quill post or stem (if I do underslung bars).

I'm digging the reverse mullet stance. Business in the back - Party in the front. :D
 
I am starting with the underslung setup, as that was my initial vision for this project.

I needed a stem that would sit nice and tight beneath the triple tree plate, so I am going with this no-neck (almost vertical) Rollfast stem.
