Chainstay ding (aluminum)
Hi all. I took a little spill today, and was looking for a little help on the frame damage. Just a small ding on the chainstay:
It's pretty small, and (I think?) in a relatively low stress location... but I know that even the smallest dent can wreak havoc on structural integrity. Especially since it is columbus "starship" tubing, which I believe was their thinnest walled aluminum.
I know most of you guys are hardcore steelies, but thought I'd check to see if you had any insights. Ride it til it fails, or too risky-time for a new frame?
