So... does anyone have any do-it-yourself tricks for removing decent sized dents in aluminum top tubes. If so let me know. I have heard of the dry ice rub pulling some out. Any others? The dent is a nice golfball size (rather shallow) dent but is anoying the heck out of me.

Any ideas would be sweet!

Dry ice works well for hail damage, never tried it on a bike.
Let us know how it works.
Haha. Will do. I figure this looks like hail damage even though its from my rear end. Will let you know how it goes tomorrow. Should be fun as long as my frame doesn't crumble.

An appropriately sized sticker always seems to do the trick. You should go for a nice flower-type to make sure you really intimidate the competition.
so it actually works to an extent... The problem being you have to get the frame material warmer, before you use the dry ice. It drew out a lot of the dent and I am going to attempt to get the rest out this morning. Interesting I suppose. Dont expect for it to be QUICK though!
