Really don't want to cut that lovely steerer......... :P Should be fine. With the wheel I have in mind.

Just had an idea while out with the dogs. I have an aloominum down tube left over from a frame I cut up. It could become a steerer spacer/sleeve?

Serial will probably give the year if it matters


I quite like that long stem, use the starnut bolt hole and screw a headrest in there.
