Rock Climbing Photo: blah
I got some. Aliens from fixe this summer. Been climbing on them alot. My green took a pretty big fall and i bent the trigger wires all to hell. Any tips on getting back to normal? I have tried to bend them back but one set of cams is over camed and one is perfect cant seem to get it back to normal. What am i missing?

Thanks in advance.

And i have cruised the forums for advice but its all about replacing the wires themselves and not bending them

Sounds like a job for needle-nose pliers and some patience.

How about posting a photo.

Are the rigid trigger wires swaged to flexible cable that passes through the popsicle stick-size puller bar? Or do the trigger wires terminate as little bronze balls behind the bar? If it's the former, you need to scooch the cable through the bar to even out the retraction of the lobe pairs.

Agree that a photo or two would help us.
