      The carbon fiber seat post my bike came with is too long. I can’t lower it enough for downhill riding and my brother to ride it. I wanted to know if an average joe can cut a Bontrager carbon fiber seat post. I worry it might damage or unravel the carbon fiber and/or break the saw.

      CF is not so bad to cut, best to cut with an abrasive saw. Be sure to use a dust mask, you don’t want those fibers getting in your lungs. Finish it off with a little sand-paper so you don’t have any fiber sticking out, make sure its smooth.
