Headset Spacer

Looking for a 1" headset spacer for a project, ideally alloy , to go with a Stronglight Taper Roller Bearing Headset.
Clues gratefully received. :)

IIRC spacers are available in 10mm and 5mm thicknesses, so at £0.69 each buying three wouldn't be the end of the world?

BTW apologies if this is obvious, but if the quill stem doesn't extend below the threaded portion of the steerer, the steerer is liable to break in service, with predictable consequences.

cheers

I bought about ten of those last week. They start at 69p for the 2mm ones, 79p for the 5mm, and 99p for the 10mm.

Great value, work fine.
