    You can use other manufacturer's spacers...though the more precise the better (which I'm sure Hope spacers are the equal of King)

    I run fly racing carbon spacers with mine.No problems
    Ignore them till they go away.It's corporate policy.

    advantage: weight

    Wonder if I can get a carbon fiber tube from McMaster and cut it to length for my spacers...
