"The second LBS has said the damage can not be fixed, and that they are not steel experts so they cannot asses accurately the chance of failure."
That's basically saying that they can't confirm that it's safe!

"Even if it is safe to ride, you'll have a really hard time selling it later. A dent like that makes the frame close to worthless."
