The usual method is to use a block of hardwood with a hole in it the diameter of the tube.
Cut the bolok in half and wrap it around the dented area.
Now clamp the blocks & frame in a vice.
Tighten the vice a bit and twist the frame back and forth.
Tighten more, twist some more until the dent is nearly gone. then Bondo before painting.
ANOTHER method used by auto body shops is a spot welder that welds pins on the dent (rather than the old fashioned way with holes). Then a slide hammer is attached to the pins and carefully pull the dent out. Cut & grind the pins. Bondo, paint.
