Gyro top plate to lower plate distance
« on: May 12, 2019, 02:23:53 AM »
i remember seeing a diagram online somewhere but I cannot find it now. Do you know the recommended distance between the top gyro plate and lower gyro tabs? I wanna say it's like 1.25 or 1.5 inches or thereabouts? With the top plate directly under my stem the distance is too great because I have long steerer tub with many spacers. I need to move some spacers from underneath the top gyro plate to above it (so they are between stem and top gyro plate making top gyro plate lower in the stack without changing overall stack height)


If nobody knows then I'll just figure it out via trial and error but was hoping to get an idea before I start. Thank you.

I think your measurements are about right. Here's one solution that might help. If you run the plate upside down, it will help reduce the distance between your gyro & the plate. Hope this helps...

thanks quixnet99, I'll keep that in mind as an option.




I found the diagram I was looking for:





So it looks like 1.5" is about right. This photo is from a pdf on dans comp website about detangler installation.
