Hiya folks, had a little accident with my bike the other day. I leaned it against a wall but a strong wind gust knocked it to the ground and the frame hit a rock. I now have a chip/dent on the non-drive seat stay about 1 sq. mm. and maybe 0.5mm at its deepest. How concerned should I be with this ? I've heard carbon cracks propagate, but mine isn't really a crack and the seat stays are being compressed when ridden (not bending). I've done the coin tapping along the seat stay and also compared the noise with the other seat stay - I cant hear any dullness, nor does the seat stay creak or bend when I apply pressure at the dent. Would love to hear your opinions - is this amenable with a little epoxy resin or do I need to get it professionally repaired?
