Bandit frame on the way - steerer length?
Just confirmed a large Bandit and looking to pick up a used 36RC2, Lyrik, or HLR. Can anybody help me out with steerer tube length?
I've found a good deal on a RC2 that can be lowered, but steerer is 7.5". Anybody know if that's gonna be long enough?
Large headtube length is 145mm, a CC40 44 upper cup stack height is 8mm, CC40 ZS56 lower cup is 4mm, so 157mm.
A Thomson X4 stem stack height is 41mm, so even with no spacers on top or below it, you're at 198mm, or 7.8".
A little late, but a Syntace Megaforce2 has a minimum insert of 30mm - Over .4" less required than Thomson.

Thanks. Build is still in progress. Sniped some good stuff off eBay, and got my 36RC2 off pinkbike. Plus I can't sleep. So I'll post what I've got so far and what the plan is. It's hot as fudge on a Sunday here in tx. Therefore no rush to finish. Just BMX trail boss'N till it happens.
