Last night my friend was making a u-turn on the road and fell on some gravel. Wasn't going fast at all, but managed to bend the fork arms that connect the front tire to the actual forks pretty badly. I'm not sure exactly what their name is.....the shaft that goes inside the forks with the spring and at the bottom that's where the tire is bolted onto.....They're bent.....
Now is it possible to take them apart and rebend them back straight as possible or would that make them brittle and possibly just snap off next time I hit a pot hole?
I've posted a WTB thread on the buy forum because I'm afraid I might need new ones but anyone with any advice would be greatly appreciated.
