Step 3)

Leaving one 5mm spacer above the stem, re-apply the headset top cap using a 6mm allen key, tighten to 3nm (aka "finger tight"). note: should your desired stack lead to stack of less than 10mm of spacers below the stem, please consult with your LBS to shorten your steerer tube. Stacking multiple spacers above the stem may result in stress point on the steerer tube.
