anywhere to buy shorter stack dust caps for road bikes?

Hi I wanted lower the spacers on my road bike, but I have a taller cane creek dust cap which is equivalent to four 5mm spacers, I was wondering if there is anywhere to buy shorter stack dust caps? Or would I have to buy a whole new headset?

I think you just need to look around at some of the bike parts websites. but do you need to cut the fork also?

I do need to get the fork cut, which got me thinking if I could get a smaller stack dust cap. I know FSA has different stack height dust caps, but I can't seem to find somewhere to buy them.

Let me guess, you're talking about the giant piece here:



Campy 45/45 integrated headsets came with two different stack height "dust caps", like the ones pictured above. You need to tell us exactly which cane creek model you have.

I can't find the exact one I have on the website. But it basically looks like that without the carbon fiber weave

If you have the headset operator is referring to, this headset (you only need the top piece) will remove a lot of stack height: http://www.universalcycles.com/shopp...&category=2813
