the headset isnt setup right is it?

this is what i think it should be set up as. right or wrong?






the part labeled #1 goes all the way to the bottom(where #2 currently is). then #2 goes on top of #1 and then put the spacers and stem in any order u want after that. the headset might function how it is right now but i can guarantee you it not right or meant for it to be run that way.

a slight adjuistment...

...actually you would not use both parts 1 and 2. Cane Creek gives you the option of using a short (#1) or tall (#2) set up, but you should not use both. It looks like you have lots of steerer tube, so go with #2, install the spacers, ditch #1 and keep the cap to tighten everything down.

There's nothing wrong with running it that way. The short top cap is just acting as a spacer on top of the stem. But it does look funny.
