Who makes decent carbon-fiber headset spacers without logos? (This rules out Profile Design.)

Colo Cyclist had the Profile. The logo wipes off with a little solvent very easily. I removed it from about 10 of them.

What solvent did you use?pmf1

I tried to get the logo off mine and couldn't. I like how the ones in the catalogue pictures have no logos on them.

I keep automotive brake cleaner around for thorough degreasing (great on rims). A little squirt and the lettering wiped right off.

They put larger letters on the larger sizes, too. When a needed one, I just bought about 10, so I'd always have a size I needed. Got them all cleaned off in about 5 minutes.

I'll give that a try. They look so tacky with the lettering on.
Yes, much thanks! (nm)mja

Have you tried your LBS? This is becoming a pretty common part in reputable shops that handle road bikes. It might be easier to make a call or two than to dig through all the mail order catalogs.
