the 3yo k-force lights developed play on the pedal inserts, so got this and rode this until recently.

Do you think it would be save to strip the Ritchey stem to bare alu and do a little polishing or would that do structural damage? What do you use to stipt the paint off?

Yup, that's what I mean. I'm looking for a bare alu or a polished alu 1 1/4" stem so I wonder if the anodized finish can be removed without doing structural damage to the stem.

havent tried removing anodization.
you can try paintstripping one of those specialized stems with sleeves that comes in white, its not anodized under the paint unlike ritchey.

that slimy liquid on the stem is solvent based paint stripper.
