Should I worry abou this? Possible Seat Stay Frame Damage
So I bought a new old bike this weekend and I thought I checked it pretty good during the purchase. Maybe I could have been a bit more thorough. This afternoon I was riding to the library and I looked down and saw what looked like a small dent. I ran my fingers across it and sure enough...it runs in a semicircle around the stay. Maybe the result of some clamp on reflector?
Anyway is this something that I should be concerned about? Did I just buy a lemon? I'm attaching pics. You'll notice in shaded sunlight it barely shows up... Oh and if it makes any difference the frame is steel. Thanks for any help or insight.
