Bent forks

Postby bene313 » Tue Dec 18, 2007 4:52 pm

Got some bent steel forks :(

Anyone had success bending forks back? They're bent enough so that the down tube obstructs wheel movement.

I'm thinking I'll probably just have to bin them.

Unless they are special, just go to your bike shop and buy some new ones - they are stupidly cheap.
