How tall is the upper crown (as in, how much does it add to stack height)?

Also, how tall is the integrated stem's stack height?

Lastly, how much would it cost to buy a 888 lower crown and steerer?

I may be trading a guy my 66 for an 888 but the steerer is dangerously close to being too short. Maybe I could trade someone with a longer steerer/crown for mine even.

Seriously, no one can go measure the height of a new 888 upper crown?

Haven't been able to get ahold of him lately. Maybe it's for the best?

Either way I need to know the info I guess.

To anyone who can measure this for me....

I'll throw in a free marmocet, house trained, and a pair of river otters who know how to do laundry without shrinkage or linting all your black tshirts.

NOTE: THIS IS NOT EXACT!
I don't have a measuring tool or even a ruler, these numbers are comming from a bolt sizing thing I found in my tool box.
Just eye balling it with the tool,
Top crown - 15mm
Intagrated stem - 20mm
Hope this helps.

Thanks!

I rounded up to 20mm and 25mm just to be safe and I think I'll have enough room.

Maximum distance between crowns on the 888RC2x is 158mm. If you buy a 2004/2005 upper crown for Appox GBP45 this increases 188mm. Hope this helps. I had this problem with my 20" Giant Faith. Once its fixed you will never ride anything else.

Yeah - just ran into this - XL VPFree + 888 RC2x = go find an 04 top crown!

There is enough steerer on this thing to run the full stock 158mm and a stemp about 5" above it! This makes little sense.......

Your probably gonna run out of stanchion for the flat top crown whereas the 04 is more of a drop. I'd imagine that the XL Free has a looooong head tube.

yep - the total stack is ~169mm with a Chris King but only 158mm of space MAX.

Solution: 04 top crown! lol - I have a friend who is putting on some Go-Ride crowns on an 04, and I am going to snatch up his top crown! Extra 30mm!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

158 just became 188!!
