We guarantee that our work will put the bike back within factory tolerances,
if not better. Before you agree to have Cycleworks work on your bike,
though, you should understand these thinqs:
Within certain limits, we can change the steering angle of a frame to
make it either steeper or shallower than stock. Just what steering angle
is best for your particular bike and riding style, though, is up to
you. While we can promise that the steering head will have the angle
you want, we cant promise that the change will give you lower
lap times, better turn-in, or any other improvement.
Danger of cracks
The metal in some frames (chrome moly and most aluminum alloys, for
example) will be permanently weakened if they are heated with a torch.
In these cases, it isn't a good idea to heat the frame in the process
of straightening and reaiigning.
Some frames, especially
those which have been damaged in a collision, may crack when they are
cold worked in our frame machine. Should that happen, we'll
call you and discuss what to do. Cracks are an inherent risk of the
realignment process, and we can't be responsible if a crack occurs.
Its like doctors tell you before surgery: "There are certain
risks to this procedure...
