Do you need spacers for MTB stem?

It is also possible that the new stem is taller which may require you to remove a spacer. When dealing with a carbon steerer tube, it is critical to have the steerer tube go all the way through the stem, in order to reduce stress on the end of the steerer tube. It is then necessary to have a spacer on top of the stem.

How much is too much spacers?

Any spacer above 10mm will have a 10mm lip on the front for the wheel to rest on – this is a slight benefit to going with a bigger spacer. Also be sure to measure the outer diameter of the hub lip and get a wheel spacer that will fit that; too small and it won’t fit, too big and it won’t support the wheel properly.

Do I need a spacer above my stem?

You should always leave some length of the steering tube above the stem and put a spacer above the stem so that the entire stem clamp is clamped around a cylinder of constant diameter.

Do I need headset spacers?

Put simply, headset spacers enable you to easily adjust the height of your handlebars, which is an essential element of bike fit for BMX, MTB and road riders. In the particular case of the latter (road cycling), the correct bar height is key for comfort and performance.

How many spacers does a carbon steerer have?

Headset spacers. Dear Lennard, I have seen several references that suggest that 30mm of spacers below the stem is the maximum you should have for a full carbon fork steerer tube.

How much space do you need in a steerer tube?

Note that the top of the stem sits roughly 5mm above the top of the steerer tube, leaving enough contact area between the stem and steerer tube for a solid grip. It isn’t recommended to have more then 5mm of gap between the top of the stem and the top of the steerer tube.

How tight should stem cap be?

When tightening the headset top cap it MUST push down on the stem, or the spacer above it, and not the fork column itself (the top cap pushes down on the headset which tightens it up). Do up the headset top cap until it is just tight — at this point you should be unable to turn your stem spacers. Do not overtighten it.

How is wheel gap measured?

Check Your Gap® Place a straight edge flush with the face of the wheel and tire combination. Make sure the straight edge touches the tire in two spots to keep the straight edge even with the tire. Make sure that the measurement is taken at the point where the wheel and tire is closest to the fender.

Should headset spacers move?

The spacers should not spin. If they do, it’s a sign that the bearings have little or no pre-load and the head set will be loose. The pinch bolts were not loose when the top cap was tightened. You are missing a spacer.
