Hello again everyone:

Seeing all of these messages mentioning stack heights has brought to mind a question I have regarding this dimension.

If you are referring to a listed measurment such as in a Sutherland's Manual (mine is in storage at present - several hundred miles away), does the measurement include the upper as well as the lower components of the headset? For it is only the lower components which will make a difference in the relationship between the fork crown and the bottom of the head-tube.

When I designed each of the 5 frames that I have built, I had the headset before I began, and I measured only the lower components. This way I knew exactly how much space would be needed to use whichever headset was chosen. I'm not certain, but I believe the numbers I came up with were not the same as those listed in Sutherland's.

I suspect that if these stack heights are listed somewhere, that they may be including the upper components. I do not remember how Sutherland's lists them, so I am asking. Anyone?
