Thanks all. The frame is for sale at a good price. Seller has new one as warranty replacement. Damaged in transit. Just wonderind as I will by if it can be fixed.

Ahh... I wouldn't buy it unless it's like $100 and you are prepared to throw it in the bin if the repair doesn't work

I would go a bit more than $100, I reckon that could be bent out and smoothed off with a Dremel. Its a $1700 Chameleon frame and can be built up as a monstercross gravel bike which wouldn't be put under as much stress as a MTB.

Given the option, I would take the chance and buy that frame as is for probably $300 max. A black strip sticker would hide the damage to the paintwork.

To be honest even if that piece broke out there is plenty of support for the race. If it is 6000 series you can cold work it a little though it may be easier to just machine it true (if you have access etc) then epoxy the damage. I would happily do that and ride it.

That was kind of my thought when I came across it. It wouldn't be for smashing down the mountain. I use to have one of the same vintage. Gravel riding, wheelie and manuals around the cul de sac. I have all the other bits here to build up a complete bike.. I already have a trail bike to wreck myself on.
