    Carbon Cablestay Removal <edited>

    <I have a post over in the Salsa page but I figured I would ask here as well because I don't think it is a Salsa specific question. I have a Salsa Deadwood Carbon frame that I am trying to upgrade the rear shock on. The problem is an awkward cable stay right above the rear shock mount. It is preventing me from mounting the Cane Creek DB Air IL in its correct orientation of air can down, so I reversed it. It mounts up ok but when cycling through its travel, the shock hits the cable stay. Is it possible to remove the cable stay without damaging the integrity of the carbon? I don't know enough about carbon frames to know whether cutting off and grinding it down will damage anything. If I can, what would I use to then seal up the raw carbon underneath? Or is this something where I should just abandon the Cane Creek shock and go back to the Monarch? Any help would be much appreciated.> Never mind .... after measuring and remeasuring and reremeasuring, i determined it will hit regardless of whether I take the cablestay off or not. Oh well. Back to square one
