Just a quick update:
The first covers have been send to godzuki to use on his awesome projects, I hope he will like them.
I also made a little cover for sanglier's pinarello f12 as he wanted to use a regular stem, this cover allows for cables to be routed internally. this cover is now printed but it's possible to make it out of carbon in the future if others want it as well.

I have not made a lot of covers at this moment as I had a lot of exams the last couple of weeks which I spent most of my time on.
There are a more molds being made which will be recieved after a little training camp in Spain, after polishing these I can make a lot of covers in a week. That way I can both work way more efficient as quite a lot of time is needed to get everything ready and get everyone their covers sooner!
Some of these molds are made for 48mm covers so these are on their way too!

Weight wise we're around 1 gram for the 3k twill and regular 3k finish. the UD version is a bit heavier at around 1.30, but I'm pretty sure we can get that down by quite a bit

The covers are available in 46 and 48mm outerdiameter for 1 1/8 inch steerer tubes.
Finish wise 3K, Ud and twill are available.

Do you happen to have a photo of the F12 dust cover installed on the bike? I had previously discounted the F12 due to the bananas 20mm spacer needed to use it with regular bars.

If more people are interested I could make a F12 cover out of carbon fiber, but for this I would need to make some new moulds.

It's been quiet here. How are the covers doing? Did anyone manage to buy one recently?

I've spoken to Job a few times over the last 3-4 weeks.
As his Uni was on lockdown he couldn't make any but he was supposed to send me a 3k one which he had laying around, but I've had silence for 2 weeks now.
Not sure what is going on.

Thanks for the heads up. Sent email, I shall see.
The other thing is, I need 44mm cover (Cervelos) so I might be barking up the wrong tree, as Jobvisser may not have one at all (?)
I still have one from Veloflyte, perfect fit for the Cervelo head tube.
