How To Make Your Own Stem Pad

Tired of banging your knees on the back of your stem?  Follow these instructions to make your own custom stem pad.  (NOTE: This design will work even if you have both front and back brakes and a gyro.) 

All you'll need is

1) a computer mouse pad;
2) a thin velcro strap;
3) a pair of scissors to cut the mouse pad; and
4) a sharp-tipped knife to cut small slots into the mouse pad material.

Watch the video below for assembly instructions:

The colors and/or graphics of your stem pad are limited only by what you can find on a computer mouse pad.

Enjoy!  Your knees will thank you.
