1" Brass Spacers
Like a well-used Leica rangefinder, there is something undeniably comforting and warm about aged brass and a bike that wears patina with pride. The fine folks over at Blue Lug in Japan couldn't find good quality brass spacers, so they started making their own.
These are 1" spacers to be used with threaded and threadless headsets and are available in 2mm and 5mm heights. Wall thickness is 1.5mm.
This is exactly the kind of thing I expect from Blue Lug, a beautiful, functional, perfectly made component that no one else offers. The 1" brass fits perfectly, is not oversized, and accents any headset stack beautifully. Most of what I was finding was for 1" but bulged out to 1 1/8" which looks pretty wonky when you have to blend them with true 1" spacers. Then I stumbled on Velo Orange's Blue Lug brass spacer. Not only are they true 1" spacer but they come in 2mm and 5mm sizes that are perfect for working up the exact height needed
