Removing a Dent in a Seat Tube on an Alloy frame, its not a big dent but enough to notice and its half way down about 2 inches before the cage mount bolts.

My thought was this, Would Inserting a 30.9 Machined solid steel post down far enough Pop the dent out with some slight heat and a Hammer ?

Edit, would modifying a quill stem work?

I was looking at that frame. I don't think the dent is worth worrying about. Trying to sort it could lead to weakening it further.

Trying to 'pop' the dent would stretch it and weaken it further.

Just ride it till it squealls.

Yeah I think your both right so I'm not bothering, it would annoy me. It' a shame them m5 frames are the best having had one in the past.
