I have now added the leather stem protector to the web shop and also to my eBay list. It is fitted to the stem with velcro, and is cut to fit around the fold latch and the curve of the stem. The idea is to stop the cable runs from damaging the paint on the stem which is a well known problem. It will also stop front-mounted luggage from rubbing in a similar way. A bit of road testing has established that the front brake cable may need loostening a bit at the caliper in order to prevent the brakes binding, but this is the work of seconds. Due to the thickness of the leather, this product will initially only be available in the contemporary colours.
