Default Re: how to CHOP a fork

Biggest problem with using a tubing cutter to shorten a head tube is a tubing cutter is going to leave a ridge inside the tube that you're going to have to file flat again.

If you have a tubing cutter you can carefully score a line all the way around the tube then use that as a cutting guide for the hacksaw.
Straight tubes suck, the beauty is in the bend.
