Damaged L seatstay...problem???
We found a brand new KHS Milano tandem at a bike shop only 2 hours away. Size Large (what we need). I have not seen the bike, but the bike shop tells me it has a minor/small dent in the drive (L) side seatstay. They say it isn't something that will fail structurally (sp?).
I can get the bike - setup, everything, for 650 bucks. Almost 1/2 off the original cost, and about 25% the cost of a Burley.
Is a "slightly dented" seatstay something to worry about? Obviously all parts of a frame need to "work together" - but would the dent be something to preclude us from buying the bike?
