Hi all,
I bought this frame used without having seed this dent (online buy).
Luckily it was very cheap. Dent is just above the place on the tube where the FD clamp goes. I'm adding photos.
What do you think, ride it or scrap it?

Blue Electric blue Bicycle accessory Bicycle part Aqua Blue Electric blue Majorelle blue Aqua Cobalt blue Blue Fluid Aqua Electric blue Azure

Thanks!

Thanks for the "encouraging" answer.
As you see, I'm a bit positively biased.
Seller offers option to return, but the frame is a beauty except for this dent and it's a 62cm seat tube, 59cm top tube (I'm 6'5 tall)..
It came with stem, steerer, cranks/BB, seat post and RD hanger, all for around 120$.
I was sad about having to return it, since I really felt like trying it out.

Perfectly fine to ride it as long as the dent doesn't interfere with the FD alignment. Keep an eye on it because it could be the source of a crack, though that is not likely. I hope the frame was cheap because to list a bike with that dent and not mention it is downright shady.
