A ding is a small dent.
A dent is a big ding.

Although what constitutes "small" and "big" in the eyes of some sellers is obviously open to a LOT of interpretation!

"face plant" has always been my favourite when it comes to describing the act of inadvertently parting company with one's bicycle...

Usually a spill, an "off", or hitting the deck, in my experience.
