Aynone got an idea on where I can get one of those shims for a 1" aheadset to make it so you can fit a 1/18 stem cheapish, I've had one before but I can't find it so want another one I've looked on ebay but don't really want to pay 5quid again for a tiny bit of tubing. Cheers

I got them free at my lbs. They say they get stems with them, but nobody uses them.

Tried ebay but only one on buy it now for 4quid plus postage, I'd try my LBS but out of the 2 that are local to me 1 is useless and the other one has just sold up so am a bit stuck.

I have one that you can have for free (well, the cost of the postage anyway).

PM me.
