I acquired a Thomson Elite X2 stem to try out ( http://www.lhthomson.com/elite_x2.htm ), and while it's obvious now, I didn't realize this would happen just by looking at its picture. My ugly, unfinished aluminum steerer tube shows right through the voids in the side of the tube clamp on the stem. I guess they were assuming I'd have a pretty carbon steerer. Anyway, any good solutions to this? Electrical tape, magic marker?

Thanks.

Find some stickers or decals with an interesting logo of the right size and shape and stick them on the steerer to show through the windows. Eons ago we used to put banana stickers on our stems, maybe you could start a similar tradition.

I spray painted the steerer tube matte black, doesn't look too bad with the anodized stem.

MY 3T stem is the same way...I used a black magic marker. You can't even notice it now
