    XC Comp Frame damage

    Just noticed this dent yesterday before I went out for a ride. There doesn't appear to be any scrapes or damage to the area around the dent....

    Does this look like something that happened when I hit something? Or is it a stress dent or something like that? Do I have anything to worry about if I keep riding it like this?

    thanks for any advice...

    By the look of it, my money is on the tube getting dented by you falling on or against something. I myself wouldn't worry too much about it since it isn't in a high stress area - if it makes you feel better, lotsa bikes (mountain & road) get dings like that (if you don't believe me, check out some of the up on Ebay). If it really bothers you, get some auto body filler ("Bondo") and some matte black paint (I have the same bike and the paint is easy to match).

    Could that beer in the picture have had anything to do with the dent or why you don't remember it happening?
