Is it possible for a repair stand mount to dent a seat tube on a chromoly steel frame? I recently purchased a brand new Fuji bike from a LBS and noticed my seat tube was dented in near the upper region because of the mount from a repair stand.
I'm sure its not anything to be worried about but it does bother me because I purchased this bike new and I dislike the fact that my bike was improperly handled.
I called and told them about the indent near the upper region of the seat tube and the person of the phone told me that its impossible for the clamp to make such a dent on a steel frame bicycle. If they're going to deny it was their doing, would Fuji accept my claim?
Here's a picture of the seat tube where it's dented in. Also just to clear any confusion, my bicycle is flipped upside down in this picture.
