30mm of spacers? Really?Bordershy said:You may like the rise in position plus once cut you can't go back.
I would go (and am using) 30mm of spacers between HS & stem. YMMV
I don't buy the safety bit. Too many people have been screwed when they wanted to transfer the fork to another frame, wanted to raise their bars, etc. OK, yeah anything more than an 1.5" you should cut it, but otherwise, leave it alone.derby said:There's more chance of hitting it with your knee or face when crashing. It's best to cut to very near minimum requirement for best safety, or an inch or so above the stem if not yet sure about bar height.
I understand that point, but mine is no where near that much. That looks like 6" of spacers. I am talking more like 2" at the most.dstepper said:
