Been polishing the Xizang today and double checking my stem thats come through the post today, needing a repaint and new decal then its ready for fitting.

Stem is 10mm shorter and 1.1/8th as the one on the xizang is 135mm 1" inch stem with 1" inch Rockshox crown steer, so fingers x the new stem with the correct decals and showen in all the original racing photos will be much better and the one for this replica 8)

Also added Rockshox Mag21 black stem top cap that they used as well, so im happy :D
