    It's the combined distance from the lower stack ( crown race and exposed lower headset cup), the head tube length and the upper stack (the exposed part of the top headset cup and dustcap). It is used to determine the height or "drop" of the upper crown. It used to be important in measuring threaded steerer tubes for cutting length. For threadless steerers include upper crown thickness, any spacers and stem thickness minus 3mm for the top cap. (or just put it all together and make a mark on the steerer. )
