I did it to my bike DC, im sure i showed you when we went to hooters and stuff? I dont have a band saw but i did it with a very fine tooth blade on a hack saw and a steady hand. if you want you can come over this weekend and we can do it, ive got all the stuff (hack saw, blade, rivet gun)

Its not difficult to do with compressed air.

Make sure you remeasure several times with the inside tube before cutting the CF.
