I just converted my 20 year old steel Trek to a SS, and its oodles of good fun. Re-dished the wheel and everything...a nice setup I think.
But now I have these nasty shifter bosses coming out of the down tube....the things that the old downtube shift levers used to screw into.
Is there a good way of removing these? Can I just cut 'em off with a hacksaw and file away the remaining bits, or is that going to weaken my frame?
