    Red ano stem?

    I'm looking for a red ano stem for my Fuji Track. Something that's 1 1/8" threadless, 100+/- mm long, with a 31.8mm clamp, and little or no stupid logos on it. Does such a thing exist? I'm having no luck finding one. Loaded Precision is the closest I've come, but I dislike their logo down the side of it.

    Any help?

    You could wire brush your current stem then spray it with red paint. That looks real good ... Don't you remember that?

    Ahhh, Nick, way to bring back the memories. He def. made that bike look like s.

    Srive- I know Loaded has one, I referenced it, but I dislike their logo. As for Hope's, I believe their red is different than the rest of the industry's.

    I was hoping to find something clean and simple looking, but perhaps I'm out of luck.

    I have to go back and reread what I thought I saw at toronto cycles.I think you can send parts to them & they will ano them for you. Would be nice if they do. I got some stuff for them. I'm trying to locate a reasonable price place that powdercoats/anodizes rims & frames.I thought I saw a place on Ebay like that.Gotta check for more info.

    OK.
    Check torontocycles.com. Look under aluminum anodizing. They do titainium also I think.

    Any logo that's painted onto an anodized finish can be easily removed with aircraft stripper, available at your hardware store. It does not affect the anodizing. I have liberated many stems, seatposts, bars, etc. from gaudy brandings this way.

    You sir win a free beer if you are ever in Portland, Maine. I'm going to have to try this.

    I don't mind harsh logos on my mountain bike, but my track bike is classy. It doesn't need to be covered in agro b.s.

    I'll let you all know how this goes.
