Steel frame straighteners in Sydney?

Postby pwg » Mon Oct 15, 2012 9:14 am

Hi, I was hit by a non-thinking 4 WD driver a year or so ago and thought my bike was a write off. However a friend mentioned that there are stores that do frame straightening.

I've had the frame for a while, and it was made for me, so I'd like to resurrect it if possible, and the damage isn't too bad, all things considered.

Anyone have any recommendations on who to see in Sydney?

Thanks for any help.

Many bike shops will have what is needed or know someone who does.
Stan of Bike Addiction (Manlyish) is a good go to for almost any frame repair

Paul Hillbrick does a good job particularly if you need sections of tube replaced.
