Cutting Steer Tube On Forks Will It Ruin The Warrenty

Recommended Posts

hey all about to fit my new forks (zoo pitbull) and need to cut the steerer down. Just wondered if this would ruin the warrenty i.e they crack and i want to send them back and they would accept them becuase the steer tube has been cut

it doesnt say anything on the warrenty slip i got so thought i would ask you guys

i dont think it does but want to make sure

thanks for looking

Just make sure to have the end of the fork within 2-3mm of the top of the stem with all the spacers and the right headset fitted. I have a pipe cutter that I find great for getting a perfect perpendicular cut on steerers, but if you don't have this, use an old stem or a marker/masking tape to mark the line you want to cut along before you start. You'll need a round file to get rid of sharp edges inside the steerer and a flat one to do the same for the outside edges to stop the inside of the stem getting scraped as you fit it on.
