    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.

    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.

    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 always knew that you would eventually find a "niche" crux. It took you a while, but you got a real talent there! Bill, that's a nice lookin' top cap!

    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.

    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.

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