cutting a 1" threaded fork
im in the middle of a build up that im doing and the fork im using for this road bike is a bit too long.
I have added a couple small spacers and want to cut the fork down at this point.
I have measured with the fork installed and it looks like ill be cutting 3 to 4 threads above my top spacer. I think this will allow for my top lock nut to thread on just the right amount without bottoming out.
Are there any guidelines to this or tricks?
I was a LBS yesterday and they wanted $20 to cut off the fork which seemed a bit high considering all they have to do is put the proper jig on there and hack it off.
Im thinking that ill leave an old bearing race threaded on an the right height and use that as a guide and then cut it off that way. When i thread off the old race im hoping that cleans up the threads enough to thread on my equipment.
