Bent brake pedal

The wind knocked over my bike... The only damage that is a hassle is the bent rear brake pedal.

Any advice on straightening it without breaking it?

Thanks!

It's aluminum so it very well may snap if when you try to bend it back. If the arm isn't bent you could probably drill the bent bit out and find something aftermarket to bolt in there.

Remove the lever from the bike, remove the rubber and apply heat with a MAPP or propane torch and bend it straight. Trying to straighten it without heat will likely break it. Cheers.

I've had this same kind of bend on mine. As said, it is aluminum and just trying to straightening will likely break it.

The one thing I found, after replacing the entire pedal with an original part ($160 or so) is that the tip rotates, which means that, if it doesn't bother you how it looks, you could rotate it 90 or -90 degrees so that your feet has more contact while braking.

I did the same after dragging the pedal at the track. I was able to bend it back without snapping it.

I used heat and large vice grips to slowly bend the tip back more than once. Just the tip.
Ive also drilled a broken tip out, mounted a bolt and lock nut, wrapped with rubber tape and ran for months that way

I will caution you about the rear brake pivot bolt (large one). I had 2 drops on the right side, both damaging the brake lever. Last time I removed the lever, I noticed this bolt is stripped. The receiver in the sub-frame is soft aluminum. I can get a little bite but it wobbles if I pull on it.
