    yin-yang cap

    I've got artwork and the CAD file, but apparently there just isn't the demand for the martial arts taiji symbol/ yin yang symbol to get anyone to make one on a headset cap.

    I always figure my taiji skills add a lot to my mtn bike skills....must just be me.....

    Genom--is that a stock design, or did you supply the artwork for it?

    I supplied the image.

    I emailed and asked if they could machine a 45 RPM record adapter into a cap and they said "yes, just send an image".

    A usable image was made by their design department, I approved it, and inside of a week it arrived in my mailbox.

    It cost me a couple of bucks but to me its worth it to have something unique.

    How much was the total cost on that for a custom? I was asking them about a custom and even sent them a CAD model and approved artwork, but oddly, when I asked for price BEFORE actually ordering it, they never replied.

    I am definitely curious about the price.

    It was a little spendy at $24.95. I could have gotten it a little cheaper if I just had the outline of the adapter milled into the cap, but I wanted the complete etch.

    Watch, it will become a stock design (read that inexpensive) in short order.

    This is the one on my Karate Monkey.



    It's from a Gaelic Ale. My favorite beer to drink when I visit Western North Carolina.

    I just ordered one from PurelyCustom for my girlfriend that says "I RIDE LIKE A GIRL".
    I'm going to slip it on her Juliana and wait for her to notice it.

    I just received the one I ordered as a result of reading this thread. (A couple of other bits, too, besides the cap.) Thanks for the idea, everyone!

    The thread was resurrected at a strange time. Thursday is my dad's 60th birthday and I recently saw a picture of a customised headset top cap that Burry tander won when he came 5th at Sea Otter.

    Now we don't have anyone that makes these in South Africa, but we managed to source a black alu topcap and we're having it engraved for my dad for his birthday!

    He's a hardcore rider who still humbles me, and he's earned the nickname 'Superdad' on many stage races with me, so we're engraving it: "Superdad - 60 years strong"

    I hope he likes it!

    T-town has headset caps? How come I didn't get one

    Anyway, Indiefab, that was the one I was going to get. And in the colors I wanted too.

    Thought I'd show you guys what we're talking about.

    The skyline etching is an accurate outline of several of T-Town's (Tulsa's) historic downtown buildings. FYI: This is off a bike bought from there about 10 years ago.

    My sister has had it engraved. She was worried that it is a very 'me' gift and that he wouldn't remember that it was from her as well, so we changed the wording to "60 Years Strong - Michelle and Lynne"

    As soon as I get it tonight, I'll take a photo, and another one when he receives it!

    I've got one of those and a red one too; here's what I'm currently rockin'. Sorry for the blurry pic but the title of the cap makes sense.

    Thanks guys, these composite top caps have become rather interesting to make. Reason I say interesting is that each are unique as they are hand fabricated and even I don't know how they will finally turn out. The conversion from a wooden block to composite changes the character of the wood.

    Quote Originally Posted by crank1979@optusnet.com.au

    The bottom two are the most versions. One with gears was a challenge in having all the teeth line up. You can really see it under a 4x loop. Other two tone is a Walnut and Tamo a Japanese Ash if I recall.

    Quote Originally Posted by in the trees

    The top caps are a subset of custom parts I make in the shop here. Also done headsets (Campy for a fixed gear), spacers for single speeds, wooden composite for WI freewheels, The Ti 17Tooth / redwood burl turned out nice, Wooden tank inserts for retro frames and pretty much anything else one could dream up. By the time the wooden parts are ready for usage on the bike they are fully composite, some have carbon inner shells for complex shapes or added strength and are fully weather resistant.

    Thanks bsieb, Good to see the sunface in use.

    Working the copper on this one was difficult, but really happy with the results. The blue is real turquoise and red is crushed coral. The white is a pigment that woodcrafters use in turning bowls mixed with the resin.

    I get ALOT of compliments on it, gets the mind funk out of my head on those long dreary climbs.

    A local indian jeweler who saw it is thinking of making some to sell to mountain bike tourists.

    I have a stock generic one on each of my bikes, but it got me thinking.... I wonder if they make one that is a watch. How cool would that be?

    I love it. I have that same thing tattooed on my arm along with a crate of records and some turntables. That is awesome.
    I smile because I have no idea what's going on.

    Have any of you guys actually etched your own caps? I have a Dremel Electric Etcher, and I wanted to tackle maybe making my own but I dont know how it will take to anodized aluminum.

    I ordered a suspension post for my Cannondale 1FG from the boys at U.S.E. in the UK. They sent me a present, a custom top cap that says "One ****ing Gear" and has my name also. I quickly found a way to add this to my bike even though the lefty does not use a traditional top cap. Makes me smile every time I read it!

They appear to only have the option to fit that many words on 4 lines, and it looks stupid that way.

    I've always wanted to use one of those links.

    Sorry it didn't help though.

    Too bad you didn't google "If you can read this get off my bike." I did that last night and came up with fast freddy's site: http://www.fast-freddy.com/

    Its not listed on his site, but he has some in stock.
