Bicycle Mechanics - Dented Frame
Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes. Our community can help you find information about hard-to-find and localized information like bicycle tours, specialties like where in your area to have your recumbent bike serviced, or what are the best bicycle tires and seats for the activities you use your bike for.
I recently found a Trek 7300 LX in the local clean-up and the frame has a dent in the downtube, the paint isn't chipped but it has a 1 inch dent, is it safe to ride it like this, and if so how do i get the dent out. It seems like it would be a great commuting bike.
Surface dent? How deep? A one inch dent on the surface is nothing. Upwards of halfway through the frame and I wouldn't want it.

It's going to be next to impossible to get a dent out of an aluminum frame in a safe manner.
