After a long street and park session (4 hours) i have noticed that there is, in my opinion, a huge dent in my chainstay. Is it dangerous? Will my frame break soon?Photo

Yup, my signature is Spanish. Not sure how long the frame will last. How hard do you ride? What frame is that?

Yes, id hate it. Its a stock verde prism 2012, and yes, its high tensile. I used to ride normal, but i am going harder and harder in my bike. Today, for exmaple, was hard riding, and i did a few gaps, not huge one,s though. I was going to start gaps and tricks over gaps this week xDD, 5 stairs set. I weight around 132lbs.... And i am not a beginner, that frame have been holding for 1.5 years...
Its interesting the fact that yesterday i was telling my friend that i was surprised that my frame was holding up that much hahaha.

Try and get a friend to weld a steel plate thing onto it. Just be sure to tell them EXACTLY what you want haha. But thats pretty bad, a new frame would be ideal. Look at things that are more for grinding. I know Federals frames are like that, as the chainstays are D shaped. and then maybe the Sunday Soundwave!! That is one hell of a frame! Youd have to go nuts to dent that at all!

xDD i have heard that, but i cant afford one of them.. I will probably go with a WTP (that are cheap here), Fit WIFI/Marv or something like that. WTP frames have got lifetime guarantee, what is nice.

Omg, as a person who has snapped a frame and eaten some serious shit because of it. I highly recommend you do not fuckin ride that frame ever again. See if you can borrow a friends old frame for a while til you can get a new one. Someone somewhere has a frame that they can lend you for a little while but riding on that is asking for bad shit to happen to you.

My frame has two dents in the chainstay that make the frame bend a little upwards, but your dent is pretty bad I would save money for a new frame.

I dont say stupid things, just no one knows what im talking about.

In my country the people in the dole represent the 26.9%, employeers want experienced people, and i am not in a big town or anything. Also, i cant work legally, because i am 15 to 16 this year, but my bday is in october. Nobody in my town want to employ anybody. In adittion my mom doesnt allow me,because she say that my work now is to study. Soo i cant get a job...
