    Why that's easy. QBP part number is HD9900. It's a pair of aluminum sleeves that reduce your bike's headset from 1 1/4" to 1 1/8". If you care it adds 2mm to headset stack height.

    Quality Bike Parts is wholesale only. Easiest way is to order through a bike shop. The brand name is "Problem Solvers". I don't know if that's enough to help you find an internet source.
