I picked up one of these today for my girlfriends bike as the chrome on her forks is wrecked. It's a normal size steerer and her bike is small so the threads need to be cut down.
Looks like this one, it's got too dark outside for proper pictures I'm afraid.
I'm quite happy with the procedure but I've since seen a few nice bikes on here with the very same forks and I hate to cut up anything hard to replace.
I can get a regular 531 fork instead so are the Columbus too good to cut or are they common?
She won't care either way, there is a little surface rust on them that will clean off and the alternative is an immaculate silver pair of 531 forks.
What to do, what to do?
Thanks in advance.
