Can anyone suggest where to source low stack (8mm-11mm) headset cover for RB1K (not THE ONE)? Head tube upper diameter is 52mm. No Cipollini dealers around and the ones I tried to contact in UK didn't bother to reply. I hope to find something as low as on this Cipo (not my bike, found on internets):

Why not email Cipo right away and ask if you can buy it from them?

You are the only rider I know that can slam the stem on a Cipollini RB1K!

Saddle to bar drop doesn´t look to be painfully extreme.
Seems like very good setup.

No, it is not extreme at all. Obviously the frame is ideal for him and this is maybe the frame with the lowest stack to reach in the market.

Yes, that is not too much of a drop actually. I have short legs and long everything else... well, unfortunatelly, almost everything else.. :D
