Bianchi Reparto Corse 1992

This frame came all the way from the netherlands, i just sand blasted the inside of the frame, and coated the interior of the frame to prevent rust. I cyro treated 2 dents out of the top tube, the material sounds a little dead now when you tap it, but the dents are gone. The paint cracked in the process of fixing the dent. but its the price to pay (:

i heated the frame up, and then i froze the dented area with liquid nitrogen, but rapid cooling on certain metals can do some changes to the material. I particularly heat treat steels for hardening, but ive never done anything like this.

The material is alot less "pinging" when i hit it with something like a quarter now though. probably from the paint damage after i popped the dent out, but also from the rapid heating and cooling.

i should've made a video, but ive tried it on another frame it didnt work. I think because the material on my frame is very thin, like a car panel it works.

You can also fill the dented tube with water, seal off both ends and freeze the frame. The water freezing to ice will expand and push the dent out.

i was going to use a small flash charge to "blow" it out, but i just finished sand blasting the frame and getting it in the oven, and i forgot about that...
