Anyone know a good source (for a UK buyer) of light conical carbon headset spacers - the ones that go just above the headset and start off wide then taper to normal spacer width? I need to have a reasonable amount of steerer showing on a bike and want ti to look better than just having those thin spacers all the way upto the stem.
I know Campag do a nice TTC headset but this bike has a Cane Creek compatible headset.

I know Ritchey do some alloy ones like that but I've not seen any carbon ones like that.

I dug this thread out, cos my question/search is exactly the same, almost...
I'm after carbon tapered/conical headset spacer for FSA Orbit which has OD 45mm.
You can find these kind of spacers with variety of heights (mainly on the ebay) but they come with OD 46-47mm.
I'd like to replace original FSA 16mm 20g spacer.

Hi,

Pretty certain I must have one of those in a box somewhere. Made by PRO.
It fits the FSA Orbit as that's what I bought it for. The spacer is in mint condition.
PM me and I'll dig it up for you. 8)

Ciao, ;)
