its a shame the shipping for the zodiac cap is so ridiculous, they're proper quality pieces.

maybe try emailing him and see if he can work out some more affordable shipping

Nice! Do you have a thread for that in the introduction?

Popped some shots up in the TT gallery thread, no one seemed interested...

I'll get an Intro happening.

Yes you are right, there is a quite good choice of low conical spacers out there. The only problem is all of them come in bigger diameters than I need and the lowest one 7mm will add about 6mm to the hight I have now.
There is absolutely no issues with runnig upper bearings without any cover, it's just the matter of aesthetics.

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

Any others?


Production was halted to retool. Now instead of finishing the items by hand, I have a CNC machine do that part. It's more accurate and much less time consuming. Now instead of being able to produce tens per week, I can produce hundreds. The Standard Dust Shield is available again in Plain Weave and Unidirectional carbon. Numerous people have asked for the CAAD10 unit, so that is the next specially shaped dust shield that I will reintroduce. Soon after that I'll reintroduce the Top Cap in an updated shape.

What's wrong with the old shape?


I was considering offering both the original Top Cap and a flatter version. 3 people has asked for a flatter top cap from me some time ago.
The original shape is extramely light weight however....the lightest possible really. The new flatter version I am working on will be a very small amount heavier...probably less than a gram.....but this is Weight Weenies...so every gram counts.

Shipping is extremely expensive nowadays. I used to ship and item to Europe for less than $4. Now the absolute minimum is $9.45..!
I'm not sure if it's entirely due to increased fuel costs. The postal worker unions might be part of the problem. As of a year ago, the U.S. postal service was in debt by 9 billion dollars..!

What are the dimensions of Cervelo S5 cup?

Or maybe somebody knows, if S5 dust cup would fit R5 (external diameter 45mm)?

I've got a Veloflyte one on my Super Acciaio because I had to drop my seat about 5mm after a knee injury. It wasn't hard to deal with at all and service was fully reasonable for the size of his operation. I'm happy enough with it that I'm ordering an other one for my track bike.
