Hi, all. I have a Scapin road frame that I bought used. I managed to crash it on my first long ride, and it is now a bit tweaked. Rideable with no hands, but when the rear wheel is centered between the chainstays it is off by at least 5 mm at the brake bridge. The fork doesn't look quite right either. I really like the frame and it fits me well, so I think it would be worthwhile to pay a builder straighten it out. I am in the SF Bay area, in El Cerrito. I also have an old Raleigh Gran Sport that could use a bit of straightening, and might take care of that while I'm at it. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

I dont know if Bernie Mikkelsen is still around , but he's the man for frame repairs in the Bay. hard to get folks to do frame repairs, hard to break even on repairs. personally I'd make it a winter trainer and move on. IMHO.
