Hello fellow cyclists, hope you don't mind this quesiton. If a teeny weeny bit of paint comes off your bicycle, will you go buy the same colour paint and patch it up?
Used to do a bit of patching but no matter how I do it, it could never be like the original paintwork. So now I change my mindset and take pride in the scratches...They are battle scars... A prove that my bike is for real use and not a wall display.

Btw, while waiting for a boat to go over to Pengarrang couple of weeks back, came across this group of roadies also waiting for their boat. Their roadies are all multi thousand dollars bikes but all kenna scratch like hell. Respect these guys man, they buy good bikes for functionality and actual use, not for show.
