One of the best bikes on the WW forum. Just love the simple black - only the stem must be black/white ;)

Nice bikes and photos!
Needs an all black or B&W stem.

great bike and picture quality! wheelset a little to deep for my taste (one of my team mates rides his serum with mavic rsys, which fits perfect in my opinion)
optical illusion, or is there a shorter stem on the outdoor-picture?
regards,
sorry vor mai bed englisch!

Interesting how many people dislike the stems color.

The Problem is with 3t that the stems are painted red and I'm not sure whether theres a way to properly paint again over it.


@Krull Stem is the same.
I have a pair of Campy Shamals as well but they look a tad bit "standard". I prefer to have classic steelframes with low Rims.

Alessandro, I'm pretty sure you can remove the paint easily with some acetone.

locktopus, could be - i'm just wondering what it will turn into? Bare Aluminium won't look good either.

I've seen others here have done it and it has just gone down to the black below.
