Thompson X2 Stem Exposes My Steerer
I just had Thompson X2 130mm +/-17 installed on my Giant TCR Alliance 1.
I had sticked with the original stem for almost five year.
I am happy with the reach and lower riding position.
However, I realized the hollow grip on the steerer is not quite aesthetically pleasant.
It was unpolished aluminum tube.
Also I am worried about corrosion for the exposure.
Does anyone have similar problem?
What do you do about it?
Paint? Or anything I can wrap around it to have a nice look?
