|: Should I bang them out or leave them alone?
Claudine, your picture reminds me of the time when I had such jump bars on some Bauer roller skates long, long time ago. They also bent and I would bang them back into form. I also thought about building wider jump bars out of steel (I think I still have the steel plate I wanted to use for this purpose) but I never did it. I guess the steel plates would have sparked!
