    That's the one I now have in my bike. Worked like a champ. The only issue is the length. It's quite short. Around 40-45mm if I recall correctly. If you need to move your stem down 5-10 mm (without cutting the steerer), it's probably not going to fully support the stem in the steerer depending on the clamp height of the stem. Just be aware when using it.

    As a follow up to the slippage from my original post: None so far. A few rides outside and things are still nice and solid and smooth steering as well.

    I use a Specialized steer tube plug pictured in the above link... no issues, slippage etc. holds everything exactly as expected :thumbsup:
