Wait till you see how easily it bends back into shape. I've watched a bike mechanic open out flattened rear stays using Park frame bending tools. That was an alloy rockhopper and I couldnt actually believe it was capable of being returned to shape.

It wasn't returned to any sort of functional state though! The stays would be as brittle as f**k.
