I actually sent them a cut off piece of my Urgestalt seatpost about 18 months ago as I kept asking for one to be made.
I'm not expecting to see one for another 18 months. Urgestalt is at the bottom of their list.

I made another little DIY carbon fiber part for the Urgestalt, a headset dust cover.

The weight saving over the stock FSA headset spacer is about 9 grams when considering the weight of the extra spacer needed. :)

Thank you! that would be awesome to be able to do!

The finish on the headset dust cover could be much better. I used a low resolution 3D-printed mould without any post processing. - Next time I will make higher detail mould and smooth it out with filler and sanding, then I should get a high gloss smooth finish.

Here is the 3D-printed prototype for comparison. All the layer lines clearly visible;

you should have a LUCENDI Urgestalt frameset, i am sure it will be 400 grams lighter than the LW version.

I made another seatpost, this time with unidirectional (UD) pre-preg carbon fiber as the outermost layer;

It came in at 105 grams in total, being exactly 100 grams lighter than the original seatpost. :)

Anyone wanting to shave some weight off their original headset dust cover or slam that stem can now download and print this headset dust cover I designed.

Image

Weighing in at about 1,4 grams it can save about 9 grams off of a standard FSA headset cover.

You are welcome!

Did you print and fit one to your bike?

I haven't done that, as I don't have a 3D printer. I just wanted to show appreciation you took the time to post the file, and secondly because it made me realise the idea that its going to become a really cool way for people to do stuff to help each other more in the future.

After a long winter the weather was finally warm enough today to test the seatpost outside! No weird creaks or sounds, it felt really solid.

On my first ride of the season I averaged 33 kmph over a 1 hour ride, which for me on this bike is close to my personal best. Off to a great start! :D
