    Thanks Kreater. 287mm is 11inches. I think you can put about 4-5 inches in the frame. So that means about 6 inches is sticking out?

    hey alex, yes just over 11in. i have the seat post all the way in the seat tube flush with the bottom, and about 4 3/4 showing. I might still tweak it a bit. hope this helps.

    Thanks Kreater. That does help. So then you have about 2-4 inches of adjustment for the seat tube.

    I'm just trying to decide if i should buy a used thomson masterpiece and cut it down or buy the elite 287mm.

    i guess it depends on price and preference. that length works out perfect.

    99% complete.

    Just need to trim the brake hoses, slap on the frame protection in a few spots, and swap out some of the Ti jewelry that is still on the way. Should have everything done this weekend and be able to post some better pics.

    Good catch. I'm not done with the brakes yet, I still need to trim the lines and I'll route it inside the chainstay once I've got them cut to length.

    Yeah. If that is a small or med (headtube 3.5 or 4.0 according to the turner web site) + whatever stack height the headset adds might be less than 105mm (4.13"), which is what fox recommends as the min.

    Fox: "If your total stack height is less than 105.0 mm, add a headset spacer between the upper headset parts and the upper crown, to arrive within this total headset stack height specification."

    It looks a bit more exaggerated on my bike since I'm running a drop direct mount stem. With a normal rise direct mount stem it wouldn't stick out so much.

    I'll probably try a riser stem at some point, but wanted to see how this drop stem felt to see if it gave more bite to the front tire.

    Its a medium. I measured the stack height while installing the fork and it is at 107mm.
