Default Help With Frame Slider

Hey all,

Sorry to say I went down today (high sided trying to stop in some gravel, my own stupid fault). Anyways my Uncaged frame slider on the left side bent about 45 degrees. In my quick attempt today I tried to get it off but couldnt. Attached is a pic of it. Does anybody have any recommended ways of getting it off. I was thinking of trying to bend it back to straight, but I am afraid the bolt might break. Then I would be really screwed. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

B Moore

What do you mean by quick attempt? What have you tried that didn't work? Tools used?

It actually did its job. It took and absorbed the impact by bending without breaking. Hopefully saved the frame from being damaged. Main purpose of a frame slider is to protect during a lowside and tipovers, but this happened during a highside which incurs more impact forces. Bolt bending means that less force was transferred to the bike at impact.

The reason i said that is that i was looking at the frame slider tip, and it looks like it didnt take much damage from the friction which means that slider bent with the first impact, i guess we cant really know the physics of the crash but i thought the tip would brake before the bolt bends like that

Probably doesnt look to scraped up cause he was in gravel, and it sounds like a slower speed highside. I would recommend taking a mallet and trying to straighten it out. Dont think there is anyway to get it off otherwise.

i'd recommend that you get an extra large vise grip, clamp it to the slider so that the vise-grip is perpendicular to the way the bolt originally was, and try and twist it out. if you have, or can get, a large pipe wrench, i think it'll be even better. the trick is to twist the bolt so that you're not twisting against the natural direction the bolt would turn to unthread. if in fact you do break it, a machine shop or any competent mechanic should be able to get it out anyway, so it won't be a total loss.
good luck

I say take it to your mechanic and let them strip the threads and be responsible for it instead of risking it yourself and having a bike you can't safely ride to get repaired afterwards.

It would take some time and a good drill with some good drill bits but i would drill the head off the bolt and then get out the vise grips and use them to remove the rest of the bold.

This is the best way to go about it as I have experience with pesky screws and bolts on my job and I handle them in the same fashion. just knock the rest of the slider off, then drill into the remaining bolt. then take a tap and dye set and unscrew the bolt. No damage to the original threads!
