Straightening Bent Seat Stays On A Bike Frame

Posted by on in Frame & Fork


I show how to straighten a bent seat stay on my vintage Bob Jackson bicycle frame. Only attempt this on a steel frame. Do not try this on an aluminum, titanium, or carbon fiber bike frame. Steel bends different than those metals. Do not use heat. I still have a small dent which I am not sure if I can roll out due to the tapered stay. I will probably try to fill it, maybe with brass or silver solder.
