    Bent Fender

    I just got my SKS Longboard fenders for my bike. I started putting on the rear fender, but the rear end of it is bent to the right a bit, and no matter how I fiddle with the stays, I can't get the mudflap to reliably stay clear of the tire, so the tire rubs against the mudflap.

    Anyone know how to bend these back into place? I'm thinking of using some pliers and applying a lot of force to it, but I don't know if that will be harmful or not.
