Union Jack, Lion of Flanders, Alpe d'Huez, pretty pink and more available; pre-orders open today...

So, you've got your Thomson Team GB seatpost and your Flandria decals but there's still not enough Union Jack on your bike? You could be in luck, thanks to new Swedish brand ennello. They're doing a limited run of stems with a choice of 11 different face plates, of which the Union Jack is one.

Or if you're not from round these parts you might fancy a Swedish, Danish, Norwegian, French or Italian flag, or the Lion of Flanders. There's also Thor's hammer and World Championship stripes (make sure you can live up to that one, eh) or a yellow Alpe d'Huez one with a nice graphic of the climb. There's a pink one too, and also black, although that kind of misses the point of having a fancy custom stem...

The ennello stems have been worked on by Erik Nohlin. Remember him? He was the guy that drew up those excellent Cinelli/Look mash-up bike designs not so long ago and the stem's a classy beast too. You can have one in 90, 100, 110 or 120mm lengths with a seven-degree rise, and it'll set you back between £84.22 and £103.04 at today's exchange rate.

If you fancy one then pre-orders start today for the first run of 500 stems on ennello's website - order early to get your favourite design and they'll be shipping the first batch around the end of March, ready for fitting to your posh bike just as the early summer arrives...
