Ah yeah sure if the chainstay snaps sure its just a bit of a wobble in the back wheel. With the extra flex I reckon it'd be like a full suss!  8)

Wow that last one is aluminium.. And u were able to use it like that?!  Great we'll no need to worry then . Although it looks like nice thick sections there and it is just chainstay.. Not like a downtube or something.  Interesting though..  What older bikes are capable of vs new

Had to replace my first MTB and last ali bike when I found a small dent in the chainstay.

Still a bit of life in it I reckon!

Hi
Yes it's cracks are the issue alright...  But that's the worry when you have a dent.  They often come with cracks.. And they're not always visible to the naked eye.   And then when they are,  you're still left wondering is that just a paint crack which is OK or is it a body crack..!!

Anyhoo. I got up around ticknock on it this afternoon.. Just a short run  but some of the rocky stuff and it handled it well. So far so good!     I've a replacement frame landing in November so should be all good.. I hope.

Well if it was my frame I would, think it might impact the resale value somewhat though. I personally wouldn't be as concerned about a dent as a crack, especially a smooth dent like that but obviously it's your own call.

I know it's a bit different, but my commuter bike has a dent about 3 or 4 times bigger than that in the same place, and I've been riding it like that for about 8 years \_(ツ)_/

Problem solved. I had left the 10sp spacer on the freehub. The only problem was it was an 11sp cassette and the lockring was, let's say, a little loose. Only been riding it like that since Feb. Easy to miss :-)

Works much better now. Amazing!!!!
