My wife recently bought a new Trek 2000 WSD (2003 year model) and I was looking at the chain ring when the bike was not shifting correctly.
I noticed that there is a dent in the tube just below the derailer hanger (Clamp on) It looks like it may have been designed to be there, but I am not sure.
It does not look like the derailer is hitting it because the paint is so well in tact. Even then, could a derailer snapping into the bottom chain ring actually dent the frame?
I guess this long winded ramble is to ask if this "dent" is normal. My Specialized does not have it, so I have nothing to compare to.
I will be taking her bike in tomorrow to get adjusted, but wanted to know if the frame should have that indention there.
I assume this is something that should be fixed under warranty if it is not right? The bike is only about 8 days old. She has not been off the trainer with it, and there is no way that point could have been hit anyways.
