Hi. I'm not exactly sure if this should go here, but I'll try. I've been wanting to get into touring, and I recently found the perfect bike. It's a 2000 Cannondale T800. It's almost NOS. I got it from a reputable shop used. They said an elderly person traded it in for a cruiser. I digress. Anyway, as I was testing it, I noticed i small dent in the downtube. The guys at the shop didn't think anything of it. They said it was fine. The more I've been researching, the more weary I get. Here are some pictures.
If anyone thinks it would be dangerous to ride, please let me know. I have a tour planned, and it would be terrible to have a broken frame in the middle of nowhere. At this point, I can return it to the shop. Thanks so much.
