Wondering if anyone knows availability or have any success of making a spacer that seals up the vertical gap that is located on the new Trek Madone SLR ? Do not intend to use the lights on that gap but rather have it blocked off to reduce muck getting in there when riding in the wet. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

There is a rubber "tail" that plugs in to the bottom of the post that Trek makes to cover that up. The part number is W557630.

If you have Dnister black paint in that area find yourself a Frog bike dealer.

They release all their bikes with tape patches to hide scratches.

The stickers with their black bikes give you hard wearing, glossy stickers that are a great match to Dnister. Red may well match Viper Red.

Nicely integrated!
But how exactly? And which light is it?
