Steerer Tube Length

I am getting an Orbea Team Euskatel(56cm) to attempt to build my first bike, but it is just the frame. I was looking into carbon forks and was wondering if anyone knew about what length I would need to get the steerer tube to be to fit properly?
And advice would help so...
Thanks

Buy an new uncut fork. If you go used you should buy one that's at minimum = your headtube length + your headset stack height + your stem clamp length + about 40mm to play with.

Leader makes some outstanding (performing and looking) forks for pretty good prices. I'm with Bob.
