    looks like you have been flexing the powder coat. Probably not a good thing, but I doubt it's cracked the frame yet. Maybe the seat post needs to be longer? When I scanned the subject I thought it was about the seat stay cracking.

    agreed, if the seat post bent, the frame flexed pretty wildly
