i am planning to go to the van bike show this weekend....and i am still pondering if i should get a new frame slider...i dropped my bike this summer and one side of my frame slider took the impact and was bent back a little (dropped it on a slow turn) and a chunk of the plastic end is gone...but saved my bike tho...i was wondering if i decide to replace it...is possible to only replace the plastic end or do i need to replace the whole frame slider including the metal bar? i think only the end of the metal bar is bent so is it possible to hammer it back straight again? here are some pics...any help would be appreciated...and if i do buy some frame sliders at the show which retail do you recommend? i got these sliders from modern for $120...so please help me!
