I bought a new aluminium folding bike frame last week, and this weekend while I was cleaning the bike, I noticed this very tiny dent on the top tube of my frame. It was barely noticeable and I didn't notice this until I noticed the light shining weirdly on this part of the frame. Running my fingers along the frame, I noticed there is this tiny indent.
I can't figure out what could have caused that tiny dent/ indent (maybe an allen key dropped or something while I was fixing up the bike?), and I'm not sure whether this was like this from the factory.
What I am concerned about is whether this will impact the structural integrity of the frame? I am guessing not but would like to hear from you guys as well. I know on larger dents the advice is generally not to take the risk.
Or is this just a byproduct of the manufacturing process?
Any opinions would be greatly appreciated!
