Just dropped my 2009 5 Spot and dented the top tube...

Pretty unhappy with my own stupidity but wondering if its safe to ride, thinking so but is that wishful thinking?

Great guys, thanks for that. I have just built up a 2011 Flux and feel a bit out of bike credits with my wife and kids :)

I fell off my old HL 5 Spot and the bike landed on rocks. Bigger dent than that, rode it for years and it's still going with another owner. Sure you'll be fine!

This is why I'll never buy a carbon frame. If this were carbon, it might have cracked rendering the frame useless and not covered under warranty.

This frame is totally rideable and a dent like that only cosmetic. Even in the very unlikely event something happened at that area, Turner might still help out. Cant say the same for other companies.
