I used a Dremel, and it came out good. Other guys Ive seen use a grinder with a cutoff wheel, or a sawzaw with a metal cutting blade.

haha, agreed. I am going to make it shorter down the line. This was my first time so I didnt want to take too much off, and I still need to be able to put my 2up seat on for another week or so (cus then my fiance will finally be riding her bike). But yeah, for now, I thought it was a good start.

I have the exact same problem. Unfortunately mine will be a lot longer than a week.
First I have to teach her to ride, and then put away the money to buy her a bike of her own.
Chopping my rear fender is going to be the most expensive upgrade ever!!
