:shock: :cry: :facepalm:

Oh bugger.....

.....long story to how it happened...absolutely gutted is an understatement!

But...is it a problem? or should I just fill it and don't worry?

Its about 1.5mm deep. On the top tube, pretty central.

If it hasn't pierced the tube it should be fine.

Fill it with touch up paint, let it harden for around 4 days and then flat it back with t-cut. You will still see it but it will look like any other touched up stone chip. Touch up the other stone chips at the same time and after a few weeks you will have forgotten there is a dent there.
