Dinged frame

Hi all,

I already posted this in the General Cycling forum cause I didn't see this one. I got some answers, but when I saw this specific forum I thought perhaps I could get a more definitive answer.

My 2010 Jamis Aurora Elite fell over in the night and put a ding in the top tube about the size of a nickle and maybe 1/8th of an inch deep at its deepest point. The frame is made with Reynolds 631.

So my question is, do I need to get the frame replaced? Or can I get it repaired? And if I can get it repaired, how do I do that?

Hard to tell without pics, but it probably doesn't need to be repaired. Keep an eye on it.
You can have the top tube rolled with tubing blocks, but that trashes the paint job
