    pretty nifty. What size do I need to get? I have a 1 1/8" steer tube. What about for a Lefty?
    Is it simple as 1 1/8"?

    i ordered a top cap and spacer from purely custom. the top cap is a lil motivation for me. i started mountain biking about 3 weeks ago at 220#. im now down to 212#. id like to have lost more weight but i think im packing on a bit of leg mussel. my goal is to be at 180# by july 1st. my spacer is simply my name. i couldnt get a good pic of it though.

    TC Looks good Timmy. Here are a few of the last ones that made it out of the machine shop. I don't know if I will continue making them as there have been way to many requests for these then complaints about the cost. Sure they are more expensive than your typical cap, but then again consider the time, technology and materials that go into hand fabricating each one. From here forward these will most likely be by special request or limited edition runs only.

    Simply beautiful, and anyone who complains about the cost doesn't deserve to have that kind of artwork on their ride.
    Those aren't simply head set caps, they're pieces of art that are bolted to your bike.
    Cheap is rarely good, and good is never cheap.

    Springs-
    I did something similar with the beer mugs.

    My riding buddy and I came up with a name for our group:
    The Boise Urban Mountainbike Society (and drinking club)- The BUMS!
    Hence the name with the beer mugs. I had one made for him too.

    Here's the cap:

    Those are truly beautiful - bravo!

    I am sorry to hear that you've had grief over these, at least to me it's obvious these are worth the coin. I'd buy two in a second if I didn't live on the other side of the world from and weren't madly saving for a move back home to a place that's even further away...
    Ride.

    Still have a few left. Shoot me a PM with your email and I'd be glad to forward over what I have. Also working on a few special projects right now similar in nature so throwing a spare top cap into the mix would not be an issue if you have a special request.

    When you like one ...you stick with it

    Had these two for quite a while. When I DO remember to look down, it helps.

    Those look really nice. Love how you are bringing two pieces of wood together. In my experience the edges sometimes peal back thus is why I normally stick with a single inlay of wood and add other little bits. Would like to see your work in person as photos of the small detail in these caps is difficult to capture.

    We all like to add a little bling to our bike now and then. I purchased a YAWYD top cap for $12 so I could add some personality to my new bike. I choose a local brewery since I like their Smokestack Series.

    Dead Cap it was a vest pin, I broke the pin off years ago, glad I saved the body of the pin, a little silicone on the back and now a great head cap, I first seen the Dead on their first tour in 1967 at the Grande Ballroom in Detroit, Michigan, then many Great times after that..
