But they gotta go.

That shits lethal on the nuts. I don't feel safe with em, and I don't like pads....

why are your nuts hitting

why are your nuts hitting the cable guides?

probably because his frame

probably because his frame is way too big for him.

For sure, it's a horse.

maybe you should get a frame that actually fits you

Hacking up a sweet old 531 road frame is not a great idea, and I guarantee there is a collector in spokane (yes even there) that would be willing to trade you frames for one that fits (judging by your setup I'd guess you should ride a 51-54cm, not a 59-61cm). I left a pretty choice 53cm chrome lugged bottechia at a friends house last time I was there as wall art, so I know there is choice stuff there.

Save your future children and do the right thing!

Chop em off

I removed mine with a hack saw. Just be sure to not eat the frame. Once removed, sand with 220 on a block to get it nice and smooth. Then time for finish.

I used a 4 1/4" cutoff saw

I used a 4 1/4" cutoff saw on my last frame with little success. Did you use a specific blade for cutting metal?
