To hack or not...would you?

Just acquired a nice shiny FSA K Force Light Carbon seatpost.

Thing is it's 350mm long and I only need 250mm tops.

Question is would you cut it down or not if it was yours (not that I'm offering it out :D )

It's just sooooo shiny and perfect as it is I'm inclined to leave it be.

Just wondering what the general consensus is.

    Of course!

    Just cut it down!

    It'll be lighter once cut down :P

    Chop it, unless you are planning on getting leg extensions.

    Chop that mofo. It is YOURS and no one else's.

    Do it. I'm chopping an alloy post down with a pipe cutter almost as I type.

    And I've already finished a long-reach brake nut that was just too damn long-reach.
    A Titanium one, it took an hour and three new wheels for the pipe cutter :shock:

    Just waiting for the shouts of 'TIMBERRRR' :D

    Poor seatpost :cry:
