So I kept looking into what bases would fit on an Ice and talked myself into one.
I got a blue hose. Neal chatted with me for a while and ended up getting me the exact KM stem I wanted to go with that base without me even mentioning it- I thought that was pretty cool. Got it 15% off with free shipping and a bunch of goodies- ended up being around $120. Pretty sweet considering that stem with a cheap base is going for $130 right now and that base is $35 at cost. I'm anxious to see the end product under the tree.
