Is my Santa Cruz Bullit damaged???
I have a 01 bullit that I decided to strip down and paint. While I was removing the rear rear triangle I noticed that there a little dent on the seat stem located about where the cross member of the chain stays connect. I fear that I did this while disassembling the frame, but i hope i didn't
I bought this frame a little while ago and never noticed it before. I looks like that it might have been made that way since there was not scratched/cracked paint. Anyway, I want to know if this is a damaged frame or if it was made that way. Can any of you Bullit owners answer this question. It is kind of hard to see when it is assembled so I cannot find a picture of one on the interwebs.
Here are my camera phone's pictures of the dent.
Generally, a frame can handle a dent for years to come, its only a real problem if its cracked
Or is it???
