Charles,

Frame blocks like that do not remove dents. They simply press down the high spots that most dents create along with the indention. They help a bit and are part of the dent fixing process; but they generally (I've never seen it happen and I've rolled a LOT of dents) do not remove the dent. The blocks will also damage the paint in the rolling process. They are made for people like me who are doing repaints and such, in my opinion.

Tube dents can rolled out with two blocks of steel that have tube dia. cut out length wise clamp on and roll around tube works great but paint is messed up a bit Most good bike stops have one on hand. Charles Nighbor Walnut Creek, CA USA _______________________________________________
