parts check. all systems go? check again.

This is a good time of year to go through your bikes, clean em up and do a detailed parts check. The other day I was just messing around and put this stem on a bike and realized the faceplate was cracked in two spots. This is an overbuilt mtb stem built to take abuse. However, this stem has never even seen airtime. So, goes to show that anything can break whether it is due to fatigue or abuse.

So, check your bikes over before spring.

Yeah, bike inspection and cleaning. It's a good dental plan for sure!
