When I got my frame, there was a small dent in the dropout. Now there's an even bigger dent, and a dent in the top tube. I doubt there's anything I can do to prevent more dents. How much longer will my frame last do you guys think? And is it worth it to ride it till it brakes?

Check your warranty and keep riding.. dents and scratches happen regardless..

yeh well most used eastern frames are usually hiten steel, so its bount to dent. it will dent easier from rider abuse. but eastern are a nice brand imo and their new line of frames etc are so nice for if you get another.

yeah. I noticed the dent after jumping off a 7 set a few times. I don't feel like that should be enough to dent shit up. guess I was wrong.

Put in a couple spacers. BOOM problem solved.

And as to dents, how the hell did you dent a dropout? They are solid. Unless you meant chainstay or seatstay. But basically ride it until you no longer feel comfortable.
