Couple of questions if I may please. First, I am trying to make some measurements of some frame geometry on my bike. I am trying to determine what this frame size is. I bought it used. The closest dimension I can see from factory spec is the head tube length to be 140mm. I measure 5.5". Everything else falls somewhat between the factory numbers. Is there anywhere I can see on the frame what size it is? Also, this is a 2003 FSR. I want badly to get rid of this Manitou AXEL super fork. Can someone recommend a 4" travel fork. Lastly, I know its more than a couple, sorry, how can I raise the stem height? There are 3 spacers under my stem now. Do I just loosen the center bolt twist and raise up? Then add another spacer? How many spacers are too many? How high do I know the steerer tube will let me go? Thanks again all and have a nice weekend.

Specialized has frame geometry spec's on their website for determining frame size. You will need to replace your stem w/ one that has more degree's of rise. Fork - Fox & Marzocchi make great forks, see what you want to spend.
