    Hole in frame, Metal filler?

    Hi guys, I crashed my bike recently and a curb took a chunk of my bike. Now there is a hole on my seatstay. The hole is not big or deep so I don't think there is any structural problems. I was wondering if it is possible to use some sort of metal filler to fill the hole? I have no experience with metal fillers at all. Thanks!

    If a CURB took a chunk out of your seatstay you are probably toast, I would get a new frame. That kind of impact would also likely result in many fracture cracks all over the area thare are not visible to the eye. Yes a picture would be helpful. I doubt if a curb took a chunk out of the frame, it would be small, but small is all relative. Plus a failure of a seatstay while riding could be devistating.
    I had to re-learn how to walk once, but never needed to re-learn how to ride a bike. Cyclist for life.
