Ok guys the steam finally arrived...... How much should I cut the steer tube? Most likely I will have a shop do it I'm just trying to avoid dragging the frame to the shop.

That is totally up to your preference. If you leave more room, you can raise the stem/total height of the front end by putting spacers on the bottom.

And after you’ve set the height, measure the total length of the steerer tube that you want left and tell the shop to cut it accordingly

Thanks I didn’t know if there was an actually size I should cut the tube. Talk to a shop they charge $20 bucks to cut, install the start nut and the vein race. Might as well let them do it.

Yeah I think that price is standard and for the shop equipment you’d need for those things, I’d say it’s a good call.

And keep in mind you can always cover a longer steer tube with spacers on top/below stem, but can’t do much with a steerer that’s too short!
Cheers

Just run tubes in it. Unless you pinch flat by casing all the time you don't need tubeless.
