Slammed Stem

(closed)
I'm trying to slam my stem on my road bike and need a viable option for a headset cover. I also want a high quality item made with the best materials. To be frank, I'm not looking for a cheapo just to get the job done. I'm in the process of modifying my setup and it's very important to me. My aim is to get as close to the headset as possible (anything between 3mm-5mm would work just fine). Please let me know if you have any suggestions.


Thanks!

what kind of bike and headset? every cover is different. also, they're usually just a piece of aluminum or carbon, quality is less of an option than finding one that actually fits your bike well, in most cases.

Only losers use headset top covers that aren't top quality.

Call me a loser at the finish line with my stock FSA Pig cap, will ya? I paid a whopping 30 bucks new for the whole headset. I had better things to do with the buck twenty I saved over a C K. And I could buy four more. A fool and his money. Wonder what the most expensive valve stem caps are?
