Why chassis and frame measurements are essential

Why and when should a chassis or frame be measured?

After an accident

  • For your personal safety. - A distorted steering head angle and therefore changed castor is one of the reasons for high speed wobbling
  • As documentation for insurers and surveyors. - After the insurance has settled, it is difficult to make further claims, e.g. a bent frame
  • To provide documental validity when selling a used bike. - Legally, every accident or even falling over, must be declared to the buyer. The seller may be required, even after a long period of time, to take back the bike. Arguments concerning the condition of the frame or chassis will be avoided by providing documentary proof
  • Because it's long been standard practise in the automobile branch. - Wheel alignment measurement of accident damaged cars is routine practise in nearly every workshop

Before starting repairs or restoration work

  • To exclude the possibility of a false investment. - Checking the frame geometry is the first requirement before ordering lots of expensive spare parts.

When buying a used bike

  • Or your personal safety. - Minor accident traces are often found on used bikes. To determine precisely the extent of the damage, a measurement printout is required

While handling problems

  • As an important element in determining the fault. - Defects in frame geometry are easily and quickly detectable with the frame gauges of Scheibner Measuring Technology. Consequently Expensive and time consuming replacement of parts and test drives are avoided
