Saw this photo posted on the EEcycleworks Instagram. Thought I'd share since I haven't seen it mentioned, although not sure how exciting an expander plug and top cap can be.

That would go very nicely with my EEs.

I would be interested depending on price and what type of expander it was

Looks nice but it is domed the wrong way. Right now there is a nice depression to pool rain and sweat and funnel it inside the head tube where it can corrode everything inside (bolt, expander, etc.). I have had it happen and it is a big pain.

yes...my absolute black is domed that way...although the cap itself is one piece with bolt...so no leaking into head tube....but pool of sweat on summer days. reminds me to drink more regularly when it fills up.
