Very good final point! as I have to do that on my new frame (fork), too.This final point is a bit arcane, but potentially cost-saving for someone working with a new carbon fork. Having never cut a carbon steerer tube before, I was slightly intimidated and so I grazed the internet for information and found a lot of sites saying a special kind of saw is required, regular hacksaws won`t work, etc. I popped down to the local homecenter and for 480 yen I got a hacksaw for `carbon`. It was written right on the packaging (in Katakana). Went through like butter. Finiished it up with 400 grit sandpaper. No problem.
