Hey All! I have an older BD Speed 40 with the roll-top closure and aluminum frame stays. Unfortunately the stays have failed and now fold when any amount of weight is placed in the pack. Does anyone have tips for repairing frame stays by chance?

Go to a metal supply house and buy a length of flat AL to replace it/them? We have an amazing metal supplier here that I imagine could have something.  Not that that helps you if you don't live here; I'm just saying it's worth a shot.

Thanks Mike! That could be a possibility, I'll have a look into it.
