a bit hard to tell from the not very clear photos. The chainstays don’t look to be the same (i.e. symmetrical), but is that distortion in the photo? If they are different and its a new frame maybe take it back and ask them
Soemthing truly horrible happening in the first photo’. I assume thet the angle is distorting things but the wheel looks well off centre and teh distortion make it look as though there is frame twist. I guess you would definitely see paint/laquar cracking if that were the case.
no paint cracking at all and definitely not a sticker 🙂
wheel is centered in the dropouts (that is the wheel from my heckler so i know it is fine) and sits centrally between the seatstays but there is a bigger gap non drive side than the drive side on the chainstays. This is the reason i asked if it was damage, i assumed the dent was there for chainring clearance but thought i would get 2nd/3rd/4th opinions.
Should the gap be different between each side of the chainstays? This is my main concern.
