    Good luck my friend. I've seen quite a few people asking about those. Apparently they used to be available on ebay, but I've not seen them on there... Again good luck!

    Hello eliflap. Where did you get your carbon top cap?? It looks pretty cool and I lost mine yesterday...

    Is there a trick to getting the stock cap to stay on? I lost one and now the replacement is constantly popping out. The new one seems to be a cheaper design - the original from my '08 Rush had a rubber seal and the new one just has some plastic fins that give it a snug fit.

    Why bother with a cap? It doesn't really have a purpose, other than appearance. I just gave up on it when mine fell off.

    If I ever get mine back, I guess I'll try some low strength glue...

    Anyone with any clue of where to buy it? None at eBay...

    If my face or head ever had to meet my stem in an awkward crash, I'd prefer it to have a cap on it.

    Not to hijack this post but how did you accomplish the 1.125 conversion? I've seen a few different sources for obtaining 1.125 steerer but am curious who's or how you did yours.

    5 g on 7600 g is nothing no difference without 5 g

    a hole in a paint is a damage .... a lot of difference with or without a hole ,ask to Leonardo da Vinci why did not do the Gioconda with an hole ....

    hand to touch , mouth to taste , eye to see....

    Thats what I thought. You really don't care about having a light bike, you only care that it looks light.

    did you really think it ?

    the 0,152 % weight of my bike makes it ligth or not ????

    ... your next step suggested : taking off saddle ?

    You can make one yourself. Cut some carbon discs and you can glue it on the stem or simply make a ring with an old pvc tube. Made my cap a couple of months ago:

    Nice job I must say ... where did you get the carbon fiber from?

    Thanks for the post

    Thanks! Bought the carbon sheet from a manufacturer on Fairwheelbike's forum. Can't remember the name though.

    I've made plenty of those discs in different carbon pattern (2x2 twill and plain weave). I don't really use them anymore since i switched from the XC3 to Extralite UL3 stem.

    cheap top cap

    go to lowes to special fasteners. chrome metal hole plug 1 3/8 inch. Spray paint black. Works perfect.
