I thought it might be handy to post info here about the stack-height of various headsets since there are times when having a short or tall stack can help you with setting up a bike. For instance a friend of mine needs to find a tall lower cup because his front tire is grazing the bottom of the downtube when fully compressed. Also sometimes a short stack headset is nice if you need to fit a fork with an already cut steer tube onto a bike with a long-ish headtube etc. Feel free to post stack-height of various stems also.

Alright, let's post up here with specs. I'll go first.
