Dig the way the silver rims look with the chrome fork, seat and chain stays. Think you've done a great job mixing modern and classic.
majklnajt, I agree...but then, which stem can you get now that is 6 degrees, 31.6 and thinner? dedas are 8, and bulkier, thomson, 10 and also bulky...maybe tune, or extradite? have never seen those....any suggestions?
Rims are laced to chorus 32 hubs. Probably 1600 grs or so.

Willy, I think the dark color of the stem is what makes it appear to be larger in this case (since it stands out more against all the white and chrome). If the same stem was polished, it would probably look smaller. Having said that, I do appreciate the unusual color choice. I'm also wondering who makes a thinner 31.8 stem. At the moment, I'm eagerly waiting for Deda to release the Superleggero (if they decide to ship the damn thing this year) and judging by the photos, it just might work for your bike. I plan on polishing only the face plates for my bike. I think the same set up would work nicely for your Master as well assuming the Superleggero is no thicker than your current stem. The polished face plates would pick up the chrome lugs nicely and the black stem body would match the group and the seatpost. Perhaps a fully polished stem is a safer bet, but I think your bike is already one of the best Masters I've ever seen.
and yes, as above, the bar tape is terrible...unless youre thomas voeckler during those special few days.

Sadly, I do agree with the two others before this post: the yellow clashes a bit.
Thankfully Deda comes in a green to match your frame!
