And that`s how the ITM looks like in standard trim (pictured is a 120 mm length):
It had that awful golden colour that didn`t match my bikes colours,
so instead of just get it painted I first shaved off all sharp edges and this saved me 5 g in the process.
Here`s the exact same stem of another swiss weight-weenie who inspired me.
He even shaved the bolts...
Here it is, shaved and painted black back on the bike.
I could have had it "kind of anodized" in black,
but that wouldn`t be as durable as the paint.
It would have been about 2 g lighter though...
The 90 mm now weighs just 85 g (was 92 g),the 100 mm now weighs 93 g (was 98 g)
