It looks nice. Trek used to make some really classy-looking bikes (color ways). I have a 2015 Verve that's metallic blue and black -- a real smooth operator. I don't ride it much, but I just can't stand to sell it because it's such a good looking bike. Nice work!

Well, I thought I was done. LOL I have decided I don't like the looks of the big honking (120mm) adjustable stem set at 60d. So, I have this coming. It won't be as high but it will be closer. This one is 35d X 70mm

I think that new stem will really clean up that area and make it look a lot nicer.

Thanks! Me too. I tried the adjustable (long and high) so I could sit more upright. But, I think this new one will be just as good being closer. And yeah, look cleaner for sure.

Yeah, I've got 35d stems on all my family's bikes. 70-80mm is a common length for us.

I finally messaged the guy about the stem. First I asked when it might ship. No answer. Then, I asked to cancel order. No answer. Then, I got a shipping notice. Great way to do business. Now, its coming First Class from CA. That'll take a week. So, I found this on Amazon. I'll have it Saturday. When the other one arrives, I'll send it back.

Those are the same ones I use -- the Uno ones from Amazon. They work great for me.

I recently bought a DS3. Love the bike but had some problems with an arthritic elbow. Putting a 60mm 30 deg stem on all but eliminated the pain and I like the look of the shorter stem better than the stock stem. That is a nice looking bike.
