Need advice on crack in steerer tube
#1
Looking for ideas and opinions on this crack in my steerer tube. It seems pretty small and only on the outside surface, and the carbon is rather thick too. I have enough room to potentially slam the stem by cutting the area off, or I could try using a metal tube insert to brace the area. Or is it small enough to ignore for now? What do you think
