Re: Frame straightening.

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.

Re: Frame straightening.

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

Re: Frame straightening.

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

Re: Frame straightening.

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