    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."

    Come on now riding a sailor isn't too weird these days, but you just had to through in Greek to put it a notch higher. That is very sophomoric of you.

    Mine says ALL work and no play is no good at ALL. You know, like all the way around the cap? It uses one 'ALL' twice!

    "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



    Finally, here is the all work and no play top cap pic (yea I, know its bad quality) It came stock on my '03 tass.



    It has a lizard on it, that's why I like it.

    haha! Love the temp gauge.

    Mine all have King headsets, nothing to report there. We considered getting custom caps made at Sea Otter last year, but I've yet to come up with anything creative!
