102.5x10 mm? Is this an entirely new hub standard?!!

Payment is negotiable, name your price and experience level

Ps. Can't pay a whole lot but I am queer and open minded

I was looking for spencer-related side jobs and found this. apparently this guy will blow you if you install his spencer motor engine.

This could have been such a nice spencer, and it can still be rescued, but why the fuck are you going to go out of the way to kludge a quill on that spencer?!

(that being said, I'd trade frame-for-frame this spencer for my grando anyday.)

Oh god a whole group of geezers went and kludged quills onto those bikes because they're old riv-cult idiots.

They should have gotten grandos if they wanted quill stems, whereas I actually wanted a stag, but ended up with a grando because there weren't any stags available.

Not that there is anything wrong with the grando, it's a great fopchariot, rides very well, is pretty, and makes me happy (except for the quill). This whole "quill stem shoved into a threadless steerer" thing really pisses me off though.

OH! DONT FORGET THE GUYS THAT DIDNT CUT THE STEERER!

Local rando has a stag with a berthoud on a 0setback thompson and 2 fists of steerer with a 90mm Thompson

I tried to take a discreet photo but I couldnt

Did you guys ever see how long the Stag's steerer was when it arrived?

basically that was the nordavinden, too. I had about enough to fill it with bbs and use it as a nazi greeter.

That's every frame, though. One of the great things about threadless for manufacturers is that they only have to put one size of steerer tube on the fork.

Ah, good to know. This was my first ever new spencer so I had never before seen such a long, hard, uncut tube. I remember blushing as I unwrapped it.

'cept for 5" drops to flat with quill pedals, of course

We have assembled an international voltron of geometry, marketing and metallurgy experts working around the clock and have determined that your spencer sucks
