Dual crown fork with an integrated stem? If so it's probably OK. The head tube length depends on the frame size though, and you didn't say.

OK, I can help you out a bit.

I've got a large 01 Bullit with a Pig DH pro headset and the stack is just a hair under 6.5 inches.

I've also got an 06 888rc2x on a different bike the top crown is 5/8" thick, and the integrated stem looks to be about 3/4" thick.

So that's around 6.5 + 0.625 + 0.75 or 7.9" for the steerer to go all the way to the top of the stem. With a 7.5 steerer worst case it would be .3 to .4" from the top. I'd think that would be OK, but some might argue. Personally, I like the stem sticking out the top of the stem and I put a spacer on it.

BTW, the Pig DH headset is pretty tall, you might having something shorter which would help.
