    You can take the fork off ant neasuer it from the very top, down to the bottom of the crown race. If you don't want to take it off you could attempt to measure it while on the frame, but it will not be as accurate. Oh and you can just use a ruler.

    You should easily be able to measure it within 1/4 of an inch without removing the fork. If nothing else, add your total stack height (headset, stem and spacers) to the length of your head tube.

    Why do you want to know the length?

    According to Specialized's website, the headtube length on your bike ranges from 100mm to 140mm, depending on the size of your frame. Here is the link, just click on geometry and find your size frame on the chart. http://specialized.com/bc/SBCBkModel...fewch8z.j27003

    YOu can take off the headset cap and be able to see the top of the steer tube. Then measure from the bottom of the bottom headset cup to the approximate point on the outside of the stem where the steer tube ends. That is your steer tube length within a 1/4".
