Hi,

I was wondering if any ww out there had sourced other headset bearing dust covers for pre 2011 giant bikes, with a lower stack height. The original ones are around 15mm and are quite tall

Has anyone used a slam that stem bearing cover on the Giants?

Thanks

Giant makes a headset that has a relatively short headset cover. It's labelled as FSA, but it comes straight from Giant. I'll see if I can get a part number tomorrow.
Here's a picture of mine on my TCR SLR.

Thanks, that's exactly what I'm looking for, did it come stock on your TCR or did you buy it?

I have the same on my 2009 TCR, it is marked FSA 45 degree ACB. It came from my 2005 TCR.
