  • Other half has managed to bend the actual dropout not the bolt on replaceable part.
    Any views or has anyone managed to bend dropout back successfully ?

    You could always ask specialized if they do a crash replacement discount. I’m guessing they’re gong to be working extra hard on their pr for a while.

    It’s a ten year old frame and can get all but big cog on rear cassette so that’d be too much work 🙂

    anyone please 🙂

    They can usually be straightened, it’s not rocket science

    if the dropout itself has bent, you need a new frame

    if you are the original owner, have proof of purchase and have a good relationship with local Specialized dealer, they might be able to sort a new frame out under ‘crash replacement’

    won’t be cheap though, probably at least £200

    (I used to work at a Specialized Concept Store as workshop manager and have done 100+ crash replacement/warranty jobs)

    thanks, it’s bent about 5degrees inwards, she has no idea how it happened 😯 given that it’s over ten years old I’m concerned that if I try to return to straight it’ll snap off.

    what do you think?
