Stokage! Looks nice, man. The only things I'd change right off the bat are swapping out for some quality pedals and a shorter stem.

what bturman said. i'd also convert to chainguide and a 2 speed set up in the front there. but she's looking really nice, i'm sure she rides well!!

Out of curiosity, how does a shorter stem affect the performance of the bike?

Shorter stems make the bike feel less "twitchy" and really go a long way toward improving bike control. Personally, I never run anything longer than a 60mm stem, even on my trail bike. 50mm on my DH and DJ rigs.
