    Post Pix of Your Headset Top Caps!

    You know what Im talking about, put up pictures of your headset top caps if you have a cool saying or picture on it. I dont have a digital camera but mine says "All work and no play is no good at all."

    "all work and no play is no good at...(repeat)"

    Interesting. A Gary Fisher Paragon (old 26" HT version) I bought years ago also had the same top cap inscribed with "all work and no play is no good at..." in a circular, repeating pattern.

    Was this a stock GF part on their MTBs? I always thought the bike shop put it on the bike during assembly.

    That was a stock Fisher part for a couple of years, way back when Gary still had some creative input on what went on his bikes.

    My Headset Top Caps

    He's showing off the Avid SAAGO (Stiff As All Get Out) stem (yes, Avid made a stem). Collet-style with bolts on top instead of on the back and no top cap.

    Used mine all last season. Works great as long as you have a lumberjack friend who can twist on the bars hard enough to pop it off whenever you need it taken off. That thing clamps down harder than a bear trap. Physically impossible to remove the stem without having a handlebar clamped in place.

    How do you change your headset cap (I am a total wrenching newb if you couldn't tell)? Is it as simple as unscrewing the old one and putting the new one on? I know there are bearings in there so i don't want to screw something up but i really want to personalize my bike a bit.

    Thanks!

    Just unscrew the top cap bolt, remove the old cap, put the new one on, and screw the bolt back on tightly. Voila! You're finished and you've just personalized your bike.

    The only time you'll have issues with the headset bearings is if you loosen the bolts that hold the stem to the steerer tube after removing the top cap. Leave the stem bolts alone and remove only the top cap bolt, and you'll be fine.

    As the OP said, you're not changing the pressure on the bearings if the stem is already locked in. Anyway just make it tight enough to hold. Cane Creek makes their top caps of material that will break before there's enough pressure to damage the bearings.

    thats cool, I was just curious. I know when I put my stem back on I use to loosen the stem & top cap screw to get it straight. Now I now I can just loosen the stem bolts rather then the top cap & stem bolts & when I get the new cap & try go to put it on I know I can just loosen the top cap screw rather then the stem bolts aswell.

    I guess I was under the impression that the top cap bolt was what puts pressure on the bearings, not the stem bolts?

    The top cap just pre-loads the bearings, after the stem is locked you can ride without a top cap.

    Never new that. So basically the top cap serves no purpose once the stem is locked in place & straight.

    Thanks

    100% true. Unless you're paranoid like me and can't bear to stare into the abyss that is an open steerer tube.

    Just a boring old CK topcap, but I liked how the pic turned out.

    Nothing to see here.

    here is the top cap, I just got it from Fast Freds & installed it today. I like how it is flush to the stem.

    You know, I think we eventually have to decide on a winner.

    Add a poll to the thread

    Since you started the thread, choose a handful that you think are worthy of consideration, and start a poll. Just be sure to include pics. As for what to give the winner, I'm at a loss as it seems as though a custom top cap would be kinda moot.

    Maybe a 20 mm spacer from the stock choices at Purely Custom?

    or possibly some mtbr swag?

    One bike valued at 500$ or more from each of the posters on this forum except me. . Because I would win. JK, I think the winners is one of the ones with the beer cap.
    I wish I didn't know now what I didn't know then.

    I think you have a good idea here. The MTBR swag is cool. As is the spacer idea.

    You should pick your top 5-10 caps post a poll like CALL ME CLYDE said & let everyone vote. There are a lot of caps to cut it down, so check out all the replies & choose some good/original ones.

    Dont' forget to check mine out.



    call me clyde Is the swag curtious of MTBR? I can only assume someone would have to fork out $$ for the spacers but I am not sure about the swag. Only reason I ask is because if the swag is cheap/free then we could even do a 1st, 2nd & 3rd place thing. Might be kind of fun to do?

    To make a poll thread go to the bottom of the new thread selection screen, all of the way down there is a spot to make this thread a poll. Then if I am not mistaken you only have to cut the pictures of the best caps you like & paste the URL's into thepost image tab on the thread. If that doesn't make since maybe I can try to clear it up or someone else can jump in?

    I am giving the SS a slight makeover so I am awaiting a new fork. I had planned on putting the King cap on, but this thread had me looking through my Box-o-Parts and I found another familiar headset cap. It was actually the original one that came on this now coverted SS. Can anyone tell me:

    1st what the symbol is?
    2nd what bike it is?
