That definitely doesn’t apply to the people at Spa Cycles...
No, it's part of their philosophy not to cut the steerer, but to allow you to make that call once you're absolutely sure where you want your stem and bars. Eminently sensible, but not modern sexy, as it were.
Well, well, well.
Learn a little more each day.
I had no idea that you were meant to cut the top off the steerer once you had settled on the position of the stem and bars.
Possibly nobody mentioned it because I have the bars as high as they can go.
It does make me wonder if you have to replace the stem if you sell the bike on.
Or do you just fit a stem extender?
I asked here before buying the Wayfarer and there was an overwhelming "Go on, buy a Spa!".
Now I have it everyone is calling my baby ugly.
