    I recently bought my 1st road bike from a yard sale and the other day i took a nasty spill and ended up running straight into a wall (its a long story) and my frame got dented quite a bit im new to road bikes so i was curious if this looks like anything anyone would know how to fix or suggestions any input would be great

    Ouch………dont know anything about getting a frame fixed but that looks like it should be for the bin.

    Sure one of the other members with more experience will tell you different.

    I think, looking at the bike pictures, that the most sensible and the cheapest option would be to strip “EVERYTHING” from the bike frame, go back to any yard sale and buy a similiar sized frame only, then re-fit everything to it.

    I wouldn’t have thought that the bike cost much, looking at the brakes, shifters, etc., etc., so I wouldn’t opt for a repair….EXPENSIVE 🙄 🙄

    There are even lots of places on ebay selling frames quite cheap, bankrupt surplus stock etc.,

    Worth a try 😉
