I have bought a second hand Carrera Banshee. During transit, the headtube seems to have been damaged. There is a flatspot at the front:

I took the cup out, that has taken most of the damage.
Can the tube be repaired? And if so can I buy new cups?

OMG! Its mashed! Cant you make a claim against the company who conveyed it for you?

Even if you could get it back to perfectly round, it will be weaker where its been dented and the head tube is not an area you want to have any weaknesses.

That sucks man....even if you can round it out again it'll never retain the same strength

Are you going to try and get compensation?

Thank you chaps.

At the moment the seller and me are exploring all options. He is pursuing ParcelForce for compensation and I am seeing if it can be repaired (cost, and if there are places around me).

I don't hold much hope of compensation though, which means, though I don't want to, I may have to go through the PayPal resolution center Frown
