Looks fast! The stem does look a bit out of place. IMHO it would look much nicer without the logo's on the stem.

I have a darker one but at 110. May use that one once I'm fitted.

Very nice build. You can just acetone those logos right off, stem doesn't need to be changed.

Hello,

Great bike! I commend you for using Campagnolo. I just recently got my EMX-7 in the Quickstep Edition and couldn't be more pleased. Smooth ride, stable, stiff in the bb, stiff headtube/fork, beautiful shape. My question to you: what tool did you use to trim the ISP? Park Tool? Thanks!

I had an EMX-7 and used the FSA tool for the seatpost trim ... as corresponds to the ISP cap used on the bike and seatpost tube shape:
