Hi! could You give me some info on whether this little dent in rear seatstays will cause any problems (developing a crack)? The frame is Sandvik Titanium, nothing very light (thick tubes). It is 2mm deep, 5mm long. thanks for help

Unlikely. I've seen bigger dents in frames from manufacturing errors.
It's nice and smooth, no sharp angles anywhere.

How did you do it? (And how did you find it!)

No idea how this dent happened :noidea: it was already on my frame when bought it and ridden like that 1.5 years
The buyer wants to be assured that this dent is not problematic

I've got bigger dents than that on both my ti frames, and neither have caused an issue. (One is 15 or 16 years old, the other is a year younger.)

I've seen much worse damage from chain suck and ridden for years after. It's cosmetic so just ride it.

Many chainstays will be formed much more heavily than that dent too.
