A guy on the WOS board was thinking of using these guys for a bent wheel. I'm not sure about this whole idea. They definately seem like they know what they are doing and they are even local for us Michigan guys.
the before and after pics of those bent/broken wheels is pretty amazing...job looks good also. i guess there as good as new but you never know....its amazing how much damage a wheel can take, you would think it would just break up....
I would be suspicious of the structural integrity and stability. Metal will always be weaker if it is bent out of place and then bent back… I didn’t see anything about reinforcing the frame or tires afterwards… So I wonder…
One of my buddies used ( Frame Straight System )them to fix the neck of the frame on his 929(bike hit a wall head on @ about 25mph) and has not had any problems with the frame that was atleast 3 years ago,but the wheel they also welded it was cracked and bent and it did not hold air had some pin holes in the rim from them welding it but whatever do what you got to do i guess
yes, we've had bent rims fixed and frames straightened. Both of these companies do excellent work. They will also tell you if they can't safely repair the item (which they have told us before). If it's so far gone that it would be unsafe or too expensive to fix, they let you know.
If you're looking for frame straightening, only use Atlanta for GMD. They do the best work and are the best to deal with. MC Wheel is awesome for wheel straightening. Racers are cheap and many want this done instead of buying new ones. We've had excellent results.
Yeah, well a guy that rode with WOS last year and got messed up trying to show boat to Twisty... is thinking of using the link I posted to get his front wheel on his F3 repaired... so I was interested in what everybody else was thinking on this stuff... it's good info to know for future use!
