i know what you mean but its a carbon steerer and beautifully made and i am loathed to go anywhere near it with a hacksaw. i have seen some monstrous tall uncut steerers with masses of spacers and they look so ridiculous as well as parting you from your nut sack as you go over the handle bars.

That is friggin lovely. The ControlTech stuff is great, especially the stem. A very nice expensive piece of art. Makes me want to build a Ti one which I have aways wanted to do. I'll be adding that to my bucket list. Not to keen on the white wall tires though
