    Bianchi Proto new stem

    Hello I just wanted to make a quick post for all of you who maligned the stem on my other georgeous and spectacular '90 Bianchi Proto. I finally found something that I not only like but fits my sizing criteria and to top it off it is a good match for one on my 2000 Mega Ti Pro.

    looking good! I happen to think the Salsa quill stem is one of the perfect tools for the job, when you need some "up angle" but still to maintain a somewhat C&V look...perfectly fine on a '90s machine.

    The stem colour usually rubs off easy if you want a more "classic look". Work it gentle with a fine-made sandpaper (and rinse!). But black looks cool.

    Hello Bianchigirl! Right, now the Proto looks much better, the sleeker Salsa stem melts in better with the other componentry as far as I am concerned.
    I must say that you have a good-looking MegaTi frame there too, very similar actually to my own Mega Pro Lite in Dedacciai Zero Uno custom tubing. Here´s a pic from when I was building it up, does´nt look precisely like that today.

    The Ergo cable routing and the cross section of the stem compliment each other quite well.
