I'm quite astonished that this has become a thing. Bikes used to be tools made for outdoor use, paint was tough and light scarring was considered normal. If the bike happened to be black anodized there wasn't even any paint to chip. Has the quality of paint on bikes deteriorated so much? Is carbon just a bad material for paint to stick to? Have the astronomical price hikes of the last few years led to this "protect my investment" attitude?  Or is this is a side effect of the MTB fashion show? Just yesterday some other (non-english) MTB site made a serious article about this seasons new styles in mtb fashion.
