Hi folks,
I have a couple of builds on the go with Shimano 600ax stems. Both are complete with the plastic cap, but being a tart I'd much rather have the Dura Ace metal versions! Does anyone know where I might be able to get one or two? It's hardly critical, but would be nice All the rest of the hardware is complete so I'm good to go, but it's all about the finishing touches.

I'm pretty sure I saw a followup posting on here earlier this year, but I'm damned if I can find it now. If I really can't find any metal ones then I guess I'll just have to paint the existing ones silver ... :wink:

Cheers,
Gareth.

I saw someone saying they had replicas of those caps made, think it was over on http://www.lfgss.com/

Found it! - http://www.lfgss.com/thread60325.html

I've not read the whole thread recently so not sure if he's still making them but worth a shot.

Did you get the crank okay? Never heard back from you on that. Hoping you were pleased with it!

I have two of Noca's home made caps, they were good value, and arrived quickly, both look great but one does not accept either imperial or metric allen keys.
