    I have a monty 26" bar you can use until you get a new stem. If nobody has a shim.

    thanks Mike, but I really hate riding with "narrow" bars. It feels awful IMO. I will figure something out...

    nice, I didn't even know you could buy them. I was going to call a machinist friend in Dallas to see if he as any extras laying around. He made some for me a couple years ago.

    what is your shop Kevin? Bicycle Werx in denver?

    Hey patrick I dont know if you got my message but I picked up a shim from blane for you. It was only $4 so its not a big deal if you already got one. Maybe we can catch up at a group ride in denver or something this week.
