As most of you know I sell new Campagnolo engraved chainsets recently a customer asked me if I was able to add slots to add colour in a retro kinda way. Like this stem:

After much experimentation we came up with this:

Just need to add the colour now. Italian colours would have been cool imo but he wants a colour to complement his build.

I like it too, wasn't too sure when it was first suggested but the mock ups looked promising and now in the flesh I am impressed. If I ever get a build finished this should be on it.....

Colours will be orange, blue and black.

How many cranks did you kill with the trial and error bit first.

I'm impressed!

It's nice to see someone with the cajones to try something new rather than slavishly blueprinting everything.

Ha!

Actually your drawers are legendary, but if you can't take a compliment...
