there are no tips for bent cranks
other than if there one piece cranks , bend them back .
until you can get some new cranks (prefably 3-pc)

man youve been having problems with your bike, first you cant get your reflectors off then you bend your cranks? mmm..isnt it really hard to BEND 3 piece cranks? I thought that at the end of their life they just snapped or the bb snapped or something..weird..but if its one piece you can buy a 1 piece crank for 9.99 US at danscomp.com..lol

You could bend it back for a very temporary fix,
but they flex in no time because the metal is weaker.

Unless you bent it through the progression of your riding talent,
I would just get another 1-piece crank. They're dirt cheap. >$20.

When you think about it, after buying a 3pc ..
.. you could've bent 10 1pc and still spent the same.

Take it all into consideration because you might miss that extra cash ..

my mate has the same problem i told him to buy a new crank he said he will 1 year L8r he still hasnt got 1.
is it a 1 piece or 3 piece
if it's a 1 piece its pretty much ****ed you'll hav 2 get a new 1.
if it's a 3 piece just get new cranks you can keep the old chainwheel/disc

hope that helps
