Recently purchased this bike second hand. How concerned should I be of this dent? It’s about midway down the lower frame.

    it's probably fine if you're just riding on the streets or level paths but if you're using it for cyclocross I'd be a little more concerned. that being said I'd avoid buying dented aluminum frames second hand. Sep 18 '20 at 3:36
  • Keep the photo you have. Take pictures at regular intervals (distances ridden) and check for changes. If changes become apparent, stop using and ask your LBS for advice.
