Hi guys, I've got a bit of a weenie issue. Had some headset spacers laying around and used them for the new bike build. However, you can see it looks awful. Does anybody have any suggestions on what spacers to get that will match the thickness of the Cannondale stem? Every spacers I come across on the web look equally thick to what I have on right now. Thanks!

ive occasionally gone into several local shops and ask if I can dig around in their spare spacer bin.......at one of them I have found a few that were 33 to 34mm outer diameter - very trim appearance. Sorry but I have no idea what brand bike they may have come off of - except to note that the dealer I found these at is primarily a Giant and Felt dealer.

Hi jencvo

Did you ever get this sorted?

I know the problem as I usually run the thinner spacers as they also line up with Kalloy stems

I think the diameter is 32mm like This Deda example shows

But many these days are 34.4-35mm

I am also hunting for a few 5mm stack of these smaller spacers myself :D
