End of season I ended up stripping the bike to put it away for the winter. A lapse in concentration saw me lean the bike up against the bike stand. I went back inside to grab something and came out to the bike on the ground.

It's a kinesis Aithein and I've been offered 25% off a new frameset for my stupidity which is more than generous of Kinesis. The dent to me looks pretty superficial so I'm wondering, would you guys continue to race on this frame?ImageImageImageImage

Agree, that looks hardly damaged from the pic. The Aithein I handled didn't feel anywhere near as thin there as my CAAd12 either.

Cheers lads. Means I can, hopefully, put the money into a new groupo and wheels.
