Is there any problem running a Carbon-Ti top cab and expander plug on a Colnago C59 instead of the big old expander/top cap assembly provided by Colnago? I'm sure I saw someone running one in the gallery...

Second part of the question..Can the Carbon-Ti logo on the topcap be removed with acetone?

(I just like the flat topcap. Bonus is with the expander it saves a little weight and it will allow me me to lower the stack on top of the stem a little, 1 mm)

This expander is suitable for 21,2 - 25,0 mm steerer tubes. Measure yours and thats it.
