first, my stem's stack height is around 41mm
the amount my fork sticks up past the spacer rings (when the stem is removed) is about 36.5mm
if i buy a new stem (i want one thats shorter, lengthwise), how far does the fork need to go up into the stem
could i use a stem thats stack height is say 38mm.
how does that all work?
also, the nut the bolt screws into (thats down in the fork, that holds the stem on), how is that set into place, and how do you move it/remove it.
one last ?, are the caps and bolts that hold the stem in place, all the same size, so long as youre comparing a 1 1/8" stem, to a 1 1/8th" stem
basically, if i get a new stem, will the cap/bolt that i have now, work with the new stem, or will the stem come with its own cap/bolt and nut, thats down in the fork
as you can see, i dont have a clue how all this works
