I was double checking the specs on the Shiver DC as I'll probably be getting one real soon and noticed it says max steerer length between crowns of 145mm with standard crown and 163mm with high crown. My '03 Medium BigHit has a steerer tube length of 137mm and a Race Face Diabolus or Chris King headset adds 31mm … so it would seem neither crown would work.
Now I know this is a real common combo (and OEM in '02) … so what gives? Am I figuring this wrong?
Also … is the high crown the one that normally is in the box, or the standard (I know that seems to make no sense, but neither does a max 145mm crown - crown height)?
