    Trimmed my Riseman strap

    Hi

    I decided to trim my Riseman strap, it now fits under my winter cycling jacket much better. The extra length was catching all the time. I cut with scissors then added two cuts at the sides, filled down with the girlfriends diamond nail file and then buffed on the carpet and my jeans to get a nice finish.

    What do you think?

    It does look great, almost like it wasn't even modded. I have small wrists and have thought about doing it, but I REALLY like the raised portion at the end of the strap that insures the slider won't slip off. Will you miss that?

    I've worn it all day and it has not slipped, The tab did not seem to do much anyway. It would still slip out if you pulled it. I thought it looked too angular.

    Hmm...

    I don't need to cut mine off luckily . It fits perfectly as is, and the tip stays tucked closely to the strap.
