I suspect I may need a slightly smaller one...but I dont know what size my exisiting one is...where are the measurements taken from/to?
Unless BFTB has canged it, the Galaxy does not come with an ahead stem set up, it's a traditional one. Is that right BTFB?

There is a black headset thing with the Dawes logo on it and several spacers...the stem is some kind of alloy and is level..it's not one that goes up at an angle or anything.
I will measure it as per your kind comments and see if I can find one of the same kind but shorter.
Have you tried flipping the stem over? If it sits flat at present then flipping it over should give you a slight angle upwards which may solve the problem without any additional cost
