    help managed to crack the seal that is under my spacers by overtightening.

    Anyone got a spare seal for a 1 1/8 " thread less stem (carrera virtuoso)

    The LBS will only sell me a complete new head set :blush:

    I can't seem to edit the above post ... but what I meant was I have a bag of bits from when I had a new headset - but I wouldn't have the foggiest if it would contain the bit you require... (other than the bit with the balls in which you don't want as its lovely and rusty).

    Well it might be similiar - I've tried taking a bad photo of it. I can try again later outside so its less blown by the flash if you like.

    I only got the bits back as I wanted to see what they looked like inside the headset - they are filthy.

    I still can't find the edit your own post button... so meant to say I think it may be the one on the right - but the angle doesn't really look the same as yours.

    This is a photo of my headset that I posted earlier in the year:

    To show what it looks like on a bike before it was replaced. I'm not convinced its the same shape but I don't mind posting it to you... maybe it needs to go with one of the other bits in the bag?

    If you do not mind posting it it would be great , want me to send anything in return/cover postage?.

    If it doesn't fit at least i had a go before splashing out on a new head set
