After getting good feedback on the board this morning on the Bianchi Pista I went to check out a used one a guy listed locally. It was a 2003 that looked really clean. As I was checking it out I noticed a small dent in the tt. It's about 4cm from the st (right over the "B" in Bianchi) and about the size of the nail on my pinky. It's pretty shallow and doesn't have any paint missing nor does it have a crease. The frame is 520 CroMo. I could get it for a pretty good deal so I bought it anyway. How significant is a small dent and what should I watch for?
Yes you should've...PdxMark

It's a pretty solid steel frame. I'd watch for the paint to chip/blister there, and then touch it up. I have the same bike. Enjoy. It's fun to ride...
