These are readily available for $22 shipped from ebay. The finish is bare aluminum.

Craftsmanship is so-so, IMO. But the product works well. The finish on the threads seems like it got banged around some (not entirely bad at all...but a little dent/flat areas here and there...possibly from rattling around in a big bag. The 16mm female threads had shavings in it still..overall, not a very polished product but it works.

The Lee's Precision 16mm+ to 14mm- thread adapters look far better. They do cost 1.5x as much and may take a little more time to get to you which is something to consider.

I used 1" diameter black heat shrink tubing instead of painting. Works well, won't chip and provides a good grip surface to tighten down.

The heat shrink is a FANTASTIC idea! Thanks for buying our adapters guys! Cadence and I (FPTC owners) are both on here now so if you have any questions just ask!

BTW, it seems that a lot of people like the bare aluminum look, which always gives the option for paint. We want to know what y'all think though.
