Has anyone experimented with cutting off a portion of their brake pads for additional clearance at the fork legs? I recently purchased a new frame and fork and have transferred my Paul canti's over. I noticed that the new frame and fork have less clearance when the cable is released and the wheel is being removed than my last frame. The following link shows a past bike of Nys with this modification. The second photo shows it the best.
Anyone have any experience with this?
