Dent in the frame

Damage in the top tube of my Surly CrosscheckYesterday I noticed by chance that the frame of my everday crosser has a dent :-(. I didn’t see it before as it is on the right lower side and you can barely see it from the top or from the side.

I believe that the dent was caused by my accident in February. There my bicycle lied on it’s side at the end next to the curb – propably the curb left this mark on the impact of the frame.

However the frame is made of steel and the dent is not at a right angle to the tube and also not near a weldseam – therefore I will just let be like this for now and check the frame for cracks from time to time, as a new frame will cost more than 400 EUR.
