I was hit by a car yesterday. Fortunately I just suffered cuts and bruises but my road bike handle bars faired alittle worse. The top of the left handle bar was bent in 90 degrees from about the place where the palm of your hand sits.
I took it to my local bike shop and he just bent in back using his hands. Still in a daze I thanked him and headed home. I am now thinking that the metal is probably weakened and should I be riding on them?
Any thoughts much appreciated. I have got a 70 mile early season ride on Sunday and am not sure how safe things are!
