That's pretty ugly. It might affect the structural integrity a little. Luckily, if your going to break a frame that's a better spot to do it. Your probably fine though. Just ride it till it breaks.
Actually now that I look at it, the other side has that same bend in it. All I really see is a scratch. That's nothing. Your fine

The dent on the opposite side is where they made an air hole from welding.

But, that's nothing to worry about. I put a bigger dent than that in my old frame deliberately (to improve the chainline). And have ridden a few frames with much bigger dents

Tbh i would just keep riding it, its the nature of the game, it may crack in 1 week or one year or never, don't worry about it till it happens

I dont really think that frames crack few inches from dropout on chainstay. They crack near bottom bracket, near seatpost and near headset.

What frame is that? Looks like a hi tensile steel frame. If it is, ride it till it breaks, in most cases that won't take too long. I have been responsible for many people's frames being bent or cracked over the years. Hi tensile steel just can't take much abuse and sure can't take a high 360...at least not often.

you are good--chainstays like on your bike get dented all the time. if it were on the top or downtube it might be a different story. Don't worry at all. Shred and destroy!

Unless you slam on it HARD or like try 720's for a week , you're 100% fine .

I highly doubt anything will happen to it if it's a chromo frame

They crack all over. A buddy cracked a Fit on the Chainstay wishbone-not on a weld.

My frame has a dent about 4 times that size which came along almost a year ago and it's still kicking. It's on the hi-ten chainstay too so I'm 100000000000000000% sure you'll be fine.
