how wide are they? give them a try!
otherwise tape the cut area , use the most teeth per inch blade you can find, be careful.

A regular hacksaw with fine tooth blade works fine (Did my Monkeylite DH that way)

I didn't tape the area, it's probably not a bad idea but I doubt it matters much on Easton bars given they don't have a carbon weave layer.

I cut some down with a Dremel a while back. Then read that it's bad to breathe in CF dust. Probably best wearing a mask while you do it.

I use a regular ol' 32 tpi hacksaw blade to do the actual cutting. I cover the cut area with blue painters tape and then mark the cut line on the tape. Cut then sand ends.

Same process for carbon steer tubes.

Have fun.
