    help: Downtube dent

    this weekend I had a wreck that completely cracked the arch on my 2004 super T. While taking the fork off I noticed a dent in the downtube right where the rubber bumper on the fork hit the frame. The frame is a 2001 Stinky Dee Lux. I inspected all the welds in the area and could not find any cracks. Is this something I should be concerned about? I know this is a really strong frame, but I don't know if this dent is a big deal or not.

    It's most likely fine unless it's a really big dent.
