    Farr, Anvil, Torch + File all make them. Maybe Farr doesn't anymore I seem to remember stock being really low last time I checked.

    I made my own. It's pretty simple, just took some .058 4130 stock and cut a slit in it. Drilled and tapped a hole and use a bolt to expand it. I made a 28.6 and a 31.8 version. I'll take a photo of it and post it.

    Thank you! I'm not familiar with Farr. Would love to see photos of peoples' creations. . .. .

    You said basic, and this is that:







    Works quite well actually. Recipe is as follows:

    1"x.065 4130 tubing, 1" 1018 rod, 1" 6061 rod, 1.5"x.250 6061 and some 1 1/8"x058 4130.
    M8 x 1.25 x 200mm socket head cap screw.

    I'm sure you can figure the rest out from the pic's. You'll need a lathe.

    Hope this helps.

    I made something very similar in principle, but turned from solid brass. It was the first serious thing I made on the lathe, and Im pleased with it. Its mostly straightforward turning, albeit with some fun doing matching tapers - a mill would make the slots and holes easier, but it was easy enough with a drill, hacksaw and files.

    Ironically since making it Ive had no cause to use it, but Im sure it will do well.

    ^That's what I have been using for quite some time. I think I invested 20 min into making them.

    I dont know if it helps, but I use a cheap old 1 1/8" quill stem with a few sleeves, and it works well. Its a steel stem and i cut down the handlebar clamp, so I can move it in the vise.

    I use a 1" aluminum rod and a 1 1/8" steerer with no modifications. Don't judge me

    I made these recently from solid aluminium round. Just bored it out so there was enough to have a tapered inner leading edge. Then made the wedge to suit and use a wingnut to do it up. Works very well.

    Made one of these this weekend. Works well enough, easy to make and, as Dazza might say, "cheap as chips"
