Default Re: bending aluminum frames

As a general rule it's not a great idea to bend aluminum. Steel generally handles bending well but aluminum fatigues and breaks sometimes with not much bending at all. I am no expert just personal experience. If you do you decide to bend you need to bend the opposite side too to maintain alignment. You might get away with it if its a gentle bend spread over a large area. Really need pictures to see what you have going on.
