Would a white stem work on a black bike, with white bar tape?

Well, my bike has a white section on the top tube that takes up a little more than 1/3 of the space in the middle.

And there's gray on my bike too.

I'm thinking it'd either be a real hit, or look totally crappy.

Here's the picture.

Don't know until you put it on and decide for yourself if you like it.

Post pics when you do. I think it would look okay.

Black and white contrast always works.

Cool, I guess I'll pull the trigger on it then.

I need a new stem for my TT ride (swapping it out from the stock 90mm they gave) so I figure I'd use the road stem on that and the new one on the roadie.

You've go to be kidding? There is absolutely, positively no way that should even be considered. You are a kompleat moreon.


Actually, on second thought, it will probably look great.

It'd be cool, but NEVER, EVER wear a yellow jersey anywhere near a white stem. That is, inless you want a band of cyclists to debone you like a cornish game hen.

I've worn the TdF yellow jersey many, many times when I ride. I don't give a hoot what people say since I like it. The stem, well, I just wonder if it matches well or wouldn't work well since I do care about the aesthetics of my bike in a way.
