Default Got lemons? Make lemonade!

Sometimes with a new pen kit (to me) it takes me at least one batch to get it right. The Stratus click was such an experience as I trimmed the blanks a bit too much. The cartridge was proud when retracted and I thought it was a total loss. I looked at the kit with its black trim ring and thought O ring. I inserted an O ring between the nub and the coupler and all looks good.

Whew!

That is one way to solve it. I hadn't heard of this one. Good job.

It seems never an issue with people who own a certain bike.

In wood working, fixing your mistakes, is half the battle. In this case, you did an excellent job that no one will ever detect. It looks fantastic.
