I'm in Australia and am after a headset bearing dust cover, similar to the STS style. Now that STS have made it harder to purchase the dust cover OS, I'm wondering if there are any others available online? eBay and Google isn't showing much... Any suggestions guys?

Out of stock/doesn't make them no more/not a nice guy to deal with

Any others?

Depending on what you ride, Pinarello have one. DeGrandi's fitted it with my Graal.

Give them a call. I'd say they'll have some unbranded ones too.

Cobb cycling offers a 5mm topcap.

Can be bought here, and a small write-up can be found here.

Ciao.

FSA do one. They hooked me up with this when I was sponsored by them.

I got a 8mm carbon one on eBay that weights 5g. You have to search for "conical headset spacer".

If it's for a CAAD10 (Cannot verify fitment with anything else), any BMX Campy spec headset dust cover should fit.

I got a complete BMX headset that included a 15mm and 5mm dust cover for about $20 USD on eBay.
Didn't weigh it, but it feels substantially lighter than the 25mm Tange dust cover that came with my CAAD10.

I'd love one of these too, as low as possible. It looked like the sts ones were only like 1-2mm. I see a lot of bikes now with the stem right on the bearing, with maybe a few micro spacers in there.

Thanks for the tip with zodiac cup. 44mm that is what I'm looking for.
But 24$ for shipping puts me in the search mode again.
