    bit of play in Cane Creek S3, extra spacer needed?

    Hello. I installed a Cane Creek S3 headset in a Jamis Dakar XC '05 frame today. I used everything that came with the Cane Creek kit except the star nut since the fork -- a Manitou Axel Comp -- already had a star nut within.

    There is a tiny bit of play in the assembly after everything is tightened down. I noticed before I put the headset cap on that the steering tube is pretty much flush with the top of the stem.

    If I add another 3 -5mm spacer, raising the stem a bit above the steering tube, will this pull it all together tightly? I'm going to try it tomorrow but wanted to run it by the forum to see if there's anything else I may be missing.

    Thank you

    3)There should be 3mm of clearance from the top of the stem to the top of the steering tube. Otherwise, the top cap might bottom out on the top of the steering tube.
