Chain frame damage


Recommended Posts

To me, you should not have any concerns. The marks are not deep.

I expect this condition in case the bike was not well maintained/protected.

I assume the previous rider landed several times on the chain, that then slapped against the frame (failed sidehop or pedal up).

Or maybe he rode with not enough chain tension.

He could have protect this tube, using a small part of rubber or some Velcro.

Yes, shame it wasn’t protected. I even considered trying to get it repaired, but not sure it’s worth it.

can’t help think the tubing there can’t be more than a couple of mm thick.

I’ll certainly be protecting it from any further damage.
