I recently purchased a new 2004 model Look KG461 Carbon fiber frame withe Carbon fiber fork and steering tube.
The threadless integrated headset came with upper and lower steering head bearings and alignment collars, an FSA top cap (sits on top of the steering head and carbon tube passes through it) 4 carbon fiber spacers and 4 "very thin metal washers" that have an inside diameter that matches the outside diameter of the steering tube and the expansion plug for tightening the headset (doesn't use a star plug because it's a carbon steering tube)
The instructions that came with the frame/fork/headset, don't explain the purpose of the "very thin metal washers"
Could someone explain to me what they are for?
I don't want to proceed with cutting the steering tube until I'm certain that I have it assembled and sized correctly.

Thanks for your help.

Thanks SLR

That's exactly what I needed.
I looked on the Look website, but it didn't occur to me that I should look at the FSA website.

Thanks again for your input.
