Paint-matching the TMAT stem switch

The TMAT stem switch was designed to look great on a classic bike. Its knurled edge and polished cover complement bikes with silver alloy parts and polished details. But it can also look great on a modern build with black components. I’ve been running an early prototype of the TMAT stem switch on my daily rider, a Bike Friday Haul-a-Day. It’s a long-tail cargo bike with 20″ wheels and mostly black utilitarian components, so I painted the cover to match. For black, it’s easy since most any black paint will do. I used a matte black spray paint:

If you’re having a custom bike built or having your bike repainted, you can ask the painter to paint match the cover to the bike!
