So.... I want to take a bit off the ends. But the problem is that I live on-campus in an apartment at my college. What can I do besides go buy or steal a saw?

Take it to the Shop Class and talk to the teacher to see if he can cut it?

I go to UCI. I don't think there is a shop class.

I guess I'll try to hang around the custodial/golf cart shack. Do ya really think they'd have pipe cutters?

Mark out how much you want to take off with a ruler and sharpie, then use a pipe cutter. That's how I've cut all my bars, perfect everytime. But make absolutly sure you have it where you want it, cuz you can never get it back and new bars are expensive. Haha. Cuz even just an inch or so off each side will make a huge difference in how it feels.

Yeah I know. That's why I've been riding 'em stock for so long. I'm only gonna take like a half inch off each side. Measure twice, cut once. Dude I made it into University of Cali, Irvine. I noez how too think. ;D

Cool. Now I have to find a hardware store. Too bad asians aren't into home improvement and there's probably nothing for at least four miles. Tight.
