Purely Custom

Has anyone purchased any bike bling from Purely Custom, such as these spacers?

Those would be real purdy on a girl's bike. Go for it girl! Diamonds would be nice for evening rides on your "little black dress" bike.

I once saw a Pittsburgh Steeler head set cap on Ebay and still regret not buying it.

Cool, but not my style.

The last couple of times that I needed headset spacers I made my own. I cut down a 1 1/4" carbon steerer tube for a buddy. It turned out that the steerer tube ID was exactly the right size to fit a 1" steerer tube. Now my Klein has a single custom carbon headset spacer.

I got a custom steering tube cap for my wife. It has her name, and her bike's name on it. She thinks it's pretty cool.

I know a few folks that have made purchases from this company. No problems and shipping for custom items was relatively quick too.

Why didn't I think of that. My Christmas list just got longer...


Thanks everyone!

I cannot use them anyway, because I have old-school threaded headsets.

I ordered some chainring bolts from them, and the finish was pitted. They sent me another set, and they were pitted also. Since I was outside of the 10 day "inspection period", they told me basically to pound sand. The customer service rep actually hung up on me. I'll never buy another product from them again.
