Bontrager Race Lite 110mm 26.0 stem, 7 degree rise, £15 posted, Paypal ideally. Main body of the stem was machine polished as was the Bontrager logo but the cap was left black to create a contrast when used with a polished bar.

Prices are firm on the polished stems as they had shot-peened finishes which had to be smoothed out by hand before I could even think about polishing them. A ton of work was involved and my elbow is ruined.
:cry:

Lol. I have thrown my polishing gear in the shed and it won't be coming out until Summer 2013 at the earliest. :oops:

In a satisfied customer type bump stylee...I got the polished Pro stem and it is a little work of art...mirror bright finish that, courtesy of the odd dab of Autosol, shows no sign of fading
