I had a bike 2 years ago that needed to have the frame straightened. Couldn't find anyone here in Ireland. Talked to a few places in England, they needed the frame sent with the engine still bolted inside the frame, was to expensive to send and straighten, so i just bought a new frame.

A new frame would be my thinking. I've never liked the idea of straightening frames, especially aluminium frames.

Crossans tried to do one for me years ago....turned out cheaper to buy another one....the swing arm wouldn't line up...

Thereís a lad in Longford doing it aswell I believe,if itís a particularly difficult frame to replace itís understandable. I know a lad who had an 851sp frame done,being what it was it couldnít be replaced...job was good and everything worked out good. Donít know the fellas name that did it,l and I wouldnít be in contact with the lad who had it done ,but there at least one person in the country capable,Iím sure a bit of digging about youíll find who it is :thumbsup2:

Honestly, I think if a frame needs any kind of straightening - it needs to be replaced.
