The official info is probably buried somewhere in Race Face's tech documents but generally you top bolt of the stem no higher than the top of the steer tube, or apx 3/16".

I generally leave a 5mm on top, especially if the stem has cutouts in the part that contacts the steerer tube, like a Thomson. Looking at pics on the internet, your Aeffect stem may or may not as well.

If it were a short, solid stem with full-contact I might chop it flush, and stick a 2mm spacer to allow for the preload cap.


Or are you meaning from the upper headset race to the stem?
