    2012 Covert Steerer length

    I'm looking to get a used x-fusion vengeance and was wondering what length steerer I'd need to ensure it has for the Covert.


    Any help would be much appreciated!

    Thanks.

    Headtube length on the small frame is 110mm, medium frame is 125mm, and large frame is 140mm. Zero stack lower headsets are minimal height, but not quite 'zero'. Add in any height for stem spacers you might need and the stack height of the stem.

    Depending on frame size you'd "probably" be safe with a steerer length range of 165-175mm for the small, 180-190mm for the medium, and 195-205 for the large.

    I *think* it could. You'd need a stem with a short stack height such as a Straitline, Chromag Ranger or similar that is 38mm or less to be on the safe side. Wouldn't be able to use any spacers under the stem most likely, so keep that in mind if it's a concern.

    I planned to put a fsa headset of 1 cm and the syntace megaforce(36mm) or funn funduro(30mm)
    140+10+36= 186mm
    140+10+30=180mm

    I think it will serve
