Excellent product, clamps whatever you need cut safely and in turn allows itself to be securely clamped to a workmate, bench vise, etc. Quite simply, don't even think of cutting a stem or bars without this! Not damaged in any way by the cutting process either. Works up to a 1 and 1/8 inch stem; which will be a problem if I ever upgrade to a 1 1/2 in stem.

A small price to pay to insure a perfect cut on a pair of £950 fox forks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BikeLust Great tool that does what it's supposed to
This tool works great for cutting seat posts, handlebars and steer tubes. No issues with slippage, it can take both carbon and carbide saw blades and keeps everything nice and square for a clean cut. It also works well to slide what ever you just cut a little further inboard for filing and cleanup.
This is the right way to cut something and doesn't cause the flaring issue you have with alloy steer tubes when using a plumber pipe cutter. The one area for improvement might be a better way to attach the little rubber ends that keep the lever from falling off the tool. A little dab of glue on the end and slide the cap back on and it seems to have fixed the issue.

Good price, feels quality and it works well. I have cut carbon fibre handle bars, Fox Fork Steerer tubes and the odd Alloy seat post with these and it always grips and cuts straight. Nice design.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous Great tool, laughable stock level
Easy to use, well made tool for those of us wanting to slice up their nice new forks so they fit ever so snug. Gave me a nice straight, clean cut which cleaned up a treat. Get this sucker now instead of some overpriced malarkey. Though you may find it tricky to get it from the worlds largest online bike shop, as has been my experience. Each time I checked, for the last 2 months it was due in stock in 3 weeks time, no 2 weeks, 1.5 weeks (sooooo close now), oh wait now it's a month away. I guess I blinked. Seeing this alot more here, not so good as I seek stuff out elsewhere. Why anyone thinks I'll wait is a mystery. Still great tool, buy if you can.

Bought one of these to save having to take trips to my local bike shop and it's a first class piece of kit. Not only is it great for cutting down steerer tubes but also seat posts or anything else tubular. It tightens onto the tube nicely for cutting and it's got a bit to clamp in a vice to help keep things steady when sawing. Highly recommended.

Un objet bien fini qui remplit bien sa fonction, sans autres commentaires. Enfin oui : il est plutôt cher.
