Hi FC, it's a 127.5mm headtube and I found a very low profile headset, a Tioga Avenger CR set with a stack height of 31.5. Together that requires a minimum of 159mm tube. But apparently Mag crowns in that size mysteriously disappeared from this planet...

If they are not 140 or 145 it's bloody annoying.
A friend needed shorter than that and it was actually shorter than the normal 'threaded to' part on a mag steerer. Ended up with a MAG20 style one.

All longer ones are hard to find either threaded or threadless.
Longer will chop down of course.
140/170/etc in 30mm increments where the standard length. But most I seem to end up with are chopped to 145mm.

I do keep an eye out.
