Hi, I was given this Bianchi SL Lite Alloy Reparto Corse frame and decided to make use of it as a general all rounder and winter bike.

I used it on Tuesday but the headset was causing me issues, the bike was pulling all over the road, turns out the bearing top cover was rubbing against the bit below it. So im looking for a 1" shim to go over the split bearing compressor and will lift the top cover up slightly.

I cant find one anywhere, anyone offer any advice on best place for 1" steerer spares. My LBS managed to get something working as a temporary measure but ive not got a large 3mm gap under the top cover bit.

Basically one of these but in 1" guise.
