    bent saddle rail

    well i was riding today and went off a little jump and when i landed my @$$ hit a little hard on the saddle and bent the left rail. made the rest of the ride uncomfortable and stood up most of the way. now im thinking i can just bend it back in to place and be good to go. its not anything super light weight or anything so if i have to replace it it would be ok but im just cheep and i like the way it normaly rides. if you think bending it back is a bad idea let me know, or if you hav any recomendation of new saddles that would be great.

    If it's bent like a cra-Z mofo then I'd get a new one b/c when you bend it back it will weaken it and it could bend again and break and send a saddle rail straight up your perennial area. (or whatever it's called)

    I'm just kidding. Bend it back. If it breaks, buy a new one.
