Custom engraved top caps and spacers

Anyone know of companies who will provide custom engraved top caps and spacers? I've found this company, but I need 1' spacers.

http://www.purelycustom.com/home.html

Thanks for any info.

A lot of places that do things like trophy making will engrave just about anything you bring them, so if you find a source for nice caps/spacers, a local shop could probably do the engraving.

Yeah. Just go to someplace like Things Remembered (I keep calling them Things Dismembered) and they can do it for you. You can probably find one of their stores in a local shopping mall.

Thanks, I think. Things Dismembered, huh . . .

One of the problems is just finding 1" spacers in a variety of sizes, like 20mm, or black spacers that don't already have the size engraved on the outside. I haven't quite figured out why LBS don't carry much in the way of spacers since everyone has to use them these days. They only seem to carry carbon which is fine only in some circumstances.

My LBS had a bunch of plain ones. Look for ones made by Wheels Manufacturing.

Thanks, somehow mail order for one $3.50 item seems so odd. I'll just have to put together a list of all the itty-bitty stuff we need like bolts and nipples. We had to do a wheel repair over the weekend and now my husband's nipples don't match.

I think Jenson has a bunch also, it's just finding the place with the best collection of odds and ends.
