  8. To be honest alex deserves all the credit he did the hard work!
  9. Not sure if i am going to get into bother or this topic should be somewhere else (maybe new products) but i apologize in advance. A while back i posted a topic about the possibility of running a gusset headlock in a sloping top cap system. I have never had much luck with star nuts and have always preferred to use this headlock system on previous builds. But i am now the owner of a sloping stem and the tocaps currently on the market do not allow me to run my previously preferred setup. The main issue has been that the gusset system uses a size 6 bolt with quite a significant head on the bolt. All sloping top caps i had come into contact with were too small to run the bolt. The option of drilling out the topcap to fit the bolt was a long shot because the sloping top cap material is so sparse. So i got in touch with alex dark through the forum. He has previously made me some echo spacers for my hub due to them not being readily available and the lad seems up for a challenge. Below is a pic of the axle spacers he previously made for me After a number of messages back and forth i and a basic drawing done on ms publisher (see image below) he said he would have a crack on something. Saturday it arrived!!!! I have to say i am more than chuffed with what he has done. It works a treat and doesnt look homegrown bodge either. I know this may sound like a "yeah so what" post but i just wanted to share with everyone what a great job he has done. I know star nuts are the tried and test method generally for headsets but i cant help but think there is a gap in the market especially with inspired doing something very similar but for a flat top cap. Its made my weekend anyway Thanks Tom
