I have a custom steel framed bike built by Ewen Gellie that has S&S couplings fitted into the frame so it can be pulled apart to fit in a special travel case. After my last bike fit my position is now much lower in the front so rather than put a -17 degree stem on my bike I asked Ewen to cut nearly 20 mm of the head tube of the frame. I was also hoping this might mean the bike fits into the travel case without removing the fork which I currently have to do. Unfortunately it still didn't fit after the modification,I reckon I need another 10mm off which we don't have. It was worth a try and I still have room to slam the stem if I want.
