Searched and searched for pictures of this combination, but couldn't find any. So this goes out to the ones still searching. Initially I bought the LTD version of the bar but it looked horrible on the bike with that large grey panel. I made my own semi-stealth version of the ARX Team stem. Bar tape is black Fizik Microtex.

Weight of the bar is 213g in size 44 and stem (110mm) is 129g.

Looks good. I have the same exact stem and just this weekend actually took off all the decals.

Just take them all off :) Trust me... 3T won't be too mad at you for not being a rolling advertisement for their brand.

Hej Anders,

How did you remove the graphics on the stem? Sorry missed the title I guess acetone is all it took.

I got the same bar and the stealth stem coming hopefully next week. How do you like it without tape on the top flat part of the bar?

Takker!

And you need to do it a few times as the colour needs to come up from the rough surface if that makes sense. I don't think the short bar tape was that good, as you can feel the cables on the bottom side. This is how it looks now which I find more comfortable and better looking. I can recommend the Arundel bar tape.

Looks great I think I do not need to remove anything as I ended up getting the stealth stem and the matte and shiny combo matches my frame which also has a matte and shiny black combo.

I am also thinking of sanding down a
World Cup series white 3T seatpost, but afraid that there will be slipping issue, because of its white paint which seems thick. Any recommendation?
