    Marzocchi integrated stem install issue. Help please.

    I just bought an 04 Super T Pro and it came with the stem.
    I was gonna install the stem but the only way I can do it is to cut the steerer tube short enough so that the top cap of the headset rests directly on top of the crown. No spacers.

    I wanted to leave some xtra steerer tube on and cover it up with spacers in case I decide to change back to a regular old stem, but I could not fit any spacers in between the two "feet" of the integrated stem.

    Anybody else run into this?

    What I think I need is "thinner" walled spacers so that they fit over the tube but still in between the feet of the stem. Make sense?

    Any input is appreciated mucho.

    Thanks.

    Nobody specs the "wall" width on spacers just the stack height.

    I'm considering going to the hardware and making em myself.

    Try your lbs. bring the fork (or at least the integrated stem) to a shop and see if their spacers fit. I had some sitting around, and some fit, and some didn't.

    Btw, there's also little riser blocks that let you change the rise on the integrated stem without chaninging the position of the upper clamp. I think they're available in 15mm and 7.5mm heights.

    You could file them

    if they are not carbon i wuold just file 2 sides (that are hitting the inside of the integrated stem) opposite of each other on your spacers so they will fit. they will only go in one way but they would clear it.
    just my 2 cents.
    I wish my grass was emo so it would cut itself...

    Starting doing that and had enough after about 10 minutes.

    I'll head to another LBS and see what they've got.

    I saw those riser blocks too, they're made by Balle Racing I think.

    I found them at my LBS. Until I read this thread I thought all spacers where the same width.

    I can measure mine if that will help.

    File the spacers a little on each side so they fit between the 2 legs of the stem. I just rubbed mine on the cement. Took about 5 minutes for 3 spacers. Real quick and easy.
