sorry if this is already posted but i am painting my bike friday and have these ugly brake mounts on my forks. i dont want them anymore. what is the fastest, easyest way to take them off?

is it possible just to hacksaw them off and then use sandpapper to sand them down smooth?

Angle Grinder should be the fastest but don't chop off your fingers.

when you apply griptape, you file around the edges so you know where to cut.
