- Orange Five 20" headtube conundrums
Hi all,Posted 5 years ago
I’ve recently bought a 20″ Five Frame (2011) which is coming in the post, it has a hope headset.
I was wandering what length steerers people have been running in their Fives.
My forks have a steerer of only around 185mm, and I think it’ll be seriously hit or miss as to whether they’ll fit!
Thanks for any advice/input
Are they Kashima?
So doing the maths – 150mm headtube + 11mm integrated hope tapered headset + 40mm renthal stem – (approx.) 4mm play from top of stem to steerer tube = 197mm
30mm stem = 187mm (maybe get away with a bit more if the stem was unbroken like a Thomson). Only one way to find out!!!Posted 5 years agolarrystumblesMember
I’ve got a very similar set up, can’t remember the precise steerer length on my forks but with a 20 inch 5 frame and hope headset I had to run a ragley stubbing stem (30mm stack height) with no spacers to get it all to fit. But it does fit and is absolutely fine. Ragley did the lowest stack height I could find….Posted 5 years ago
