Small dent on frame

(closed)
Because of financial reasons I'm trading my kagero for a kissena plus cash, but the kissena has a small dent on the top tube from a clamp, and I was just wondering if this is a safe trade? Would the dent affect the frame in any way or make it weaker? And would it be safe to ride? I'll post a picture of the dent when I get on my laptop, but it's not that big.

Thanks in advance!

if you're worried about it now. think about how you'll feel when you actually have to see it and ride it.

i'd stick with what you got now.

i know its non of my business, but for financial reasons... how much could you be possibly gaining from this trade? i wouldn't pocket $100-200 for a used, dented frame.

Well here's a picture of it. If you guys feel like it won't be a problem then it won't bother me if I get it.

Well the thing is that the frame will be temporary so I'm not looking for it to last for a lifetime. I just need a little bit of extra cash for a vacation is all so Id rather just part with the frame and keep everything else

dents in the top tube dont do anything to the structural integrity or stiffness of the frame unless its a MASSIVE dent. you should be alright. id still keep the kagero imo though
