Have you tried MAVIC? If recent reports are true, they'll probably FedEx you a whole new groupset!

Although they're moulded, they do look a lot like some dipped coatings.

You could try a few coats of PlastiDip.
Or failing that, hand mould with Sugru or Versimold.

All the best,

Hand mould! With my skills it would end up looking like a used johnny hanging off it. I'll see what a search throws up first I think but thanks for the idea.

The Plasti dip is pretty basic, like thick paint, but both Sugru and Versimold are a bit like Plasticine and can be smoothed and cut easily.
Sugru takes around an hour before it's starting to set, full 24 hours to cure.
Versimold only sets when it's heated in an oven, so plenty of chance to get it looking right.

All the best,

Am not sure of the exact dimensions , but could the foam “fingers” used to cover the last generation Pace forks lock out lever be re-purposed for this. Now these maybe equally rare hard to find, but just an other idea to broaden search
