    Quite possibly as the top of the stem/spacer must sit above the top of the stem.
    So long as the top of the steerer is a little above the highest fixing bolt on the stem, it’ll be fine.

    Just remember that if you come to sell the forks at some point (assuming a bouncy version) they will be worth considerably less than one with say a 190 steerer. Dont pay top dollar – or keep em for life.

    I’m doing my first full build and am looking at second hand forks.

    I’ve got a scandal 29er with smoothie mixer on it’s way.

    stem (standard?) 40
    stack top 9
    head tube 105
    stack bottom 15
    total 169

    My question is how much steerer am I going to need to have, will I get away with 170?

    Thanks for the info. It’s amazing how much second hand forks go for on ebay – for a little bit more you can get brand new ones!
