Maximum Stack height for Carbon Steerer, 1 1/8 inch
I am working on putting together a winter project road bike.
I have a full carbon fork and it's unclear what the maximium height above the headset is "allowed" or recommended.
I have heard 3 inches and/or 8 cm.
Is there any clear-cut guidance on this?
If it matters, the fork is a no-name all carbon fork. Frame is nashbar aluminum. Headset is Cane Creek S-3.
