Dude, in the nicest, most polite way I know how let me say.........cut the fvcking steerer tube already, you'll be there for days sanding/filing it down and it will look no better than if you hack it off using a hacksaw and then file thedges off. It will not effect how it looks anyway, as that part is hidden from view.

AND BTW it's a FORK, no plural/(S). You don't eat with a forks do you?
thank you everyone :)

i think i'll stick to sanding it, just keeps the bike looking nice without lots of spacers i think, nothing major to do!!

thanks again
