    Clearly they were trying to extract the last of the toothpaste from this Crest Cannondale.
    Good thing they didn’t roll or squeeze the tubes.

    what sort of repair would prompt someone to do this???
    that being said/asked… i’ve done some various ghetto-ass repairs in my day… and while this COULD resemble a needle bearing for a headshok… umm… just “NO!!!” comes to mind.

      Best guess: trying to raise the stem by jamming stuff between the stem and the wedge nut.

      Custy brought the bike in because the bars wouldn’t stop spinning.
