off topic, perhaps. but i ran into this problem a few weeks ago, and thought i'd bring it up.

we were organizing our storage unit(s), and a lot of our bikes had been flattened in this manner. which is awesome. anyway, whoever did the loosening of the stem bolts forgot to tighten them back when after flattening them. so when we'd go to pull the bike out of the pile, the bars would come out, leaving the rest of the bike in the pile, but still connected via cables, etc. royal pain.

don't forget to tighten the stem bolts once the bars are turned!

that's it...
