I have a black Shimano Hone crankset with a Blackspire chainring on my single speed. I love both of them.

It's a pretty light and stiff setup and it didn't completely break the bank.

star nut question

I need to shorten my steer tube. Can I just pound the existing star nut further into the tube or should I remove it and use a new one?

Thanks in advance.
