What TvH said. I'd be against bending the rods, defeats the purpose of having them there, waste of money. QR mechanism will be at an angle but doubt it's a problem. Thrustvector's comment above confirms this perhaps between the lines?
I can test at home by removing the rod and posting a pic. Although Pendle 11l is much smaller than Super C.
Also, Condor shop if you're in London.
