why not try a frame builder to have a look at your frame whom am sure will give a good written report for your insurance claim as he wil be able to state whether the frame is repairable or beyond repair(ie a write off) and the cost of a new frame and fitting parts which are reuseable from your damaged bike
not sure what he would charge but you can claim this as expenses thru your insurance claim

It's been a while since my motorcycle was written off in a crash and I know motorcycle insurance is different. However, would an independent cycle engineer fill the same role as a loss adjuster? :roll:
I've never heard of a bicycle frame being straightened out on a powered jig (assuming it's bent). There is always the option of buying a complete replacement bike and selling the old one to a cycle-jumbler for salvage. The main question is, are you OK? :shock:
What is the colour(s) of your cycle?
Which of its benefits would you recommend?
