I bought Beercan's fork and it still has the Nut but I did my measurement and concluded that I will need to cut the steerer tube shorter.
I was debating to do following;
One - Drive down the nut to the depth that will fit my head tube plus allowance for the "sh## I cut too short" scenario.
Two - Drive it all the way down out and install a new one. My concern is if I drive it all the way down and out, that it will scoure the inside face of the tube and will add stress to the tube (thinning the wall).
Any suggestions will be appreciated.
