Enve stems look tits when matched with everything else they do. Thomson road stems are gross, need a 4 bolt one with a decent shape.

I just think they look a bit bulbous on steel frames, the clamp areas look well blobby. That and the fact they only come in one rise, if they did -11 or -17 that would be sweet.

Cross bike / 1x1 bar-beater:






The crosser still needs a matching Thomson stem, and eventually a carbon fork when I can afford it.

The cross bike looks so nice, I've always wanted a raw and black road bike like that.

Fitted black superstar riser bars. I think if the fork lowers were black it would look alright.

Yeah, I don't mind the forks at all, was mainly the bars, looking good now.

yes it is. I have a jtek shiftmate so i can run campy 10sp brifters x shimano 10sp everything else. http://jtekengineering.com/?page_id=18

did it because campy ergonomics are way better, and surprisingly, campy brifters are significantly cheaper than their shimano counterparts. they're also rebuildable (generally speaking)

you can also run campy levers with one more gear than your shimano shifters if you route the cable differently, or two less routed normally. as in, 11sp campy brifters will shift 10sp shimano kit with alternate cable routing or 9sp shimano with normal cable routing. same thing with 10sp brifters like i have. 9speed with alternate routing, or 8 clamped normally. this is great for a cheap cx bike coz u can use old (hella cheap) 8 & 9 sp mtb cassettes. my winter/beater bike has campy10 to shimano9 with hubbub routing and it works mint.

info if you're gonna do any of that:
