These Neco steerer plugs for carbon steerers in 80mm also work great and are well priced.

Carbon care tip for all high end carbon frames from any brand.
*Please don't leave your bike parked in the sun or the back of a car. Even though the paint is very high quality and UV protected the sun can still damage carbon that is just baking in the sun. This is especially true for Australian conditions where the ozone layer is dangerously low. Australian customers please keep this in mind more. Ive seen a carbon wheel explode the tire off the rim because the owner parked the bike in the sun after a race.
*Please use torque wrenches on all carbon product and don't place carbon bikes in bike stands as the clamp can crack your seat post, top tube or seat tube.
*I don't recommend using ANY carbon bikes in trainers. Doesn't matter what brand it WILL damage your drop outs over time if you are putting out decent watts. Use magnetic resistance rollers instead as they offer better pedaling technique promotion and are more fun to use. Yes they require more skill but if Ruby Issac (google her) can use rollers then so can you! :)
*NEVER clamp a carbon bike or carbon seat post in a work stand. I hang my bikes or clamp the seat itself. Carbon is strong but clamping can crush it pretty easily.
*Glycogen frame kits come with 2 hangers AND if you ever need more you can source them from me or here :)
