[Yak] Stem packing hint

Having just packed my Friday for the first time in several
years, I came to a nice realization.
I used to pack my stem in a bag and then try to place the bag
inside a wheel to minimize the amount of "flying around" it
would do inside the case. Today I realized that I had
specified a 28.6 diameter seatpost which is exactly the same
as the outside-diameter of my stem. So after folding down my
seat mast, I slipped my stem in and re-clamped it. Now my
stem is safe and secure and can't cause any shipping dings :)
I was a little worried about my suitcase weight, but with
everything in except my pump, gloves and helmet it comes in
at only 37 pounds/17 kilos. So I'm in well under the limit.
