    Bent seat rail, repairable?

    I've got a WTB speed v pro saddle, last night i landed a little hard on the back of the saddle and knocked the rail completely out of its sockets, in addition to benging it and the clamp that attaches it to the seat tube. I was wondering if this is repairable or if i'd be better off buying a new seat/components for it.
    I'm sittin' down here in the campfire light...with the ghost of Tom Joad...

    Try calling up WTB, I just wrote them an email about a seat that I busted. And they said they will repair or replace it for free. I hear nothing but good stuff about their warranties. It couldn't hurt.

    Cuz, if you bend that rail back it will get messed up again even easier next time. You impacted the structual integrity of the rails.
