Hello, I am finalizing my build and wanted to know what the maximum recommended spacer height is for the fork/stem on the 595 and then I will be cutting... i am tall so i need to maximize it in order to minimize the seat/stem drop as much as possible, but i also don't want to be at or over the safe limit so i am just trying to find out where that is.

thanks

info..

The headset on the 595 adds about 20mm to the head tube length and LOOK usually includes 3cm of spacer to place under the stem, as required. I f you need more than that, a different stem angle might be a better idea.

General rule of thumb is not to exceed the dia of fork steering tube which translates to 1-1/8 inch or 30mm (3cm).
