    Oh great! Can't you just see the sociopath serial cyclist maniac with a wall of 'trophies'?

    I'd rather mount the whole faithful retired bike. I can make a plaque and and engraved brass plate.

    70 Pounds: I didn`t notice the price, but that does sound awfully steep for what you get.

    The whole bike would need a really big wall to hang from, but I agree the stem and bars only lack something (especially for the track bike). Maybe start at the headtube? If it has a headbadge, even better.

    headbadge pounded flat instead of the plaque, might be a bit more classy.

    Might also be very difficult to do without damaging the badge through removal/flattening.

    odd that the only ones he has pics of have quill stems. that's too easy to mount. Let's see what he can do with a threadless stem.

    agreed that it would look better if he cut the head tube off or used the head badge.

    Need clearance to wall to get by pedals and bar with this wall display. Maybe over the couch and spuses dead body?

    In some parts of the world "SPECIALIZED" is spelt incorrectly.

    Easy enough to rig something like this in the workshop. Awesome idea, and a great place to hang gear to let it "air out"...hmmmmm. Got me a weekend project in line behind about fifty honey-dos.

    My camo drop bars would look sweet like that if the Ogre ever dies
