.. They'll just bend it back. Not very hard to do with all the machines they have

Yeah bending is just going to weaken the frame. Just run it as is.

I'm a punk bmxer, I can't do it well so I do it loud.

You coulda sent it to one of my friends. He bent his whole backend on his frame and he bent it back with his bare hands. And this wasnt a super weak frame. Haha i hope they get you sorted out man!

1/18/2014 8:38 AM

You can unbend it with a Male hub axle and a couple of wheel nuts. Just screw the nuts up on the axle so they fit in between the dropouts then tighten up so they touch the frame and then tighten up the side that's bent inward even more so it bends back out.

I said i would update soo here it goes. No receipt of original purchase sooo NO discount frame. I practically begged for it too. i asked for any type of discount and they were nice but said hell muthafuckin no.

But i get a bunch of stickers AND they straightened my frame for freee. the only thing is that the dropouts are 2mm uneven with eachother, but he said its all good and will ride straight???? hmm we'll see but heres the before and after pics they sent

You realize that you've took a picture of the chainstays in the first pic and a picture of the seatstays in the second pic right? In the second pic I can quite clearly see the alleged 'original' shape at the bottom.
