Dented top tube on a steel frame
#1
Hello! I was forwarded here from from Reddit, where I asked around about this dent I caused.

So long story short, I dropped this frame by accident on a sharp corner and it caused a smallish dent. I've been told that this is no concern on a steel frame, but I'd like to be 100% certain, if possible.

Edit: added the picture...
