    Can't you measure the original?

    I've got a Medium, the head tube is 5", the fork steerer is ~8.5", with about 1" of spacers, so compare your measurements - an 8" steerer should *just* fit, but 8.5" or more gives you some adjustment room, and will be easier to resell later.

    sweet, so a 215 mm steer tube should be ample for a small frame

    thanks fsrxc
