    I have never seen a seat stem
    I seen a peanut stand
    And heard a rubber band
    I seen a needle that winked its eye

    Seat post;

    Stem;

    Assuming you’re talking about a seatpost that is a bit too long to drop sufficiently, then yes, it should be ok to just chop a bit off the bottom…

    *Edit; do you think that picture is big enough?

    If it’s alloy/steel should be fine to cut it down.

    Easier with a pipe cutter but a hacksaw will do it.

    File down the edges too.

    The stem on the OH’s recent ebay (bargain) purchase is around an inch and a bit to long. Ok to cut down or just buy one? Hack saw if ok to cut?
