Post-Crash Brake Hood Adjustment
So yesterday I took a minor spill on wet bricks. My left brake hood (Shimano Sora- triple) is bent inward at a 45 degree angle to the drop bar.
I'm fairly new to all this, but I understand this is what they are designed to do in a crash. How do I move it back (brute force doesn't seem to work)?
Is there anything else I should check before riding again? As I said, it was a minor spill (ie, no frame damage). Also, I came down on the non-drive side.
Thanks in advance!
