Steerer tube too short?
edited April 2012
what do you think.. I want to believe it is save now... the stem is getting support from 2 parts: support on the steerer tube (middle red line) and b: support on the headset (2 upper red lines)
very dangerous indeed IMO
; think of the forces involved on the stem when climbing, braking, descending.
eg Easton recommend at least 7mm steere (carbon) above top of stem
sorry bin it and get a new fork OR if you can lower stem use a stem with a higher rise angle to achieve same height
