I didn't know anyone cared about scratches on a MTB, I thought it was almost a badge of honor along with a certain amount of dirt.
But now that you've brought it up;
Speaking as a bike flipper, black is the easiest color to touch up. Bright white, like your bike, is a distant second along with certain, vintage metallic burgandy colors. Everything else is very difficult to match right out of the can.

So you've researched touch-up paint for MTB's? (ghey)
I guess as far as aesthetics go...a frame beaten to piss (the natural way) with a smattering of new red ano components is dead sexy.
I really don't care about the scratches.
My black manitou has white scratches showing up all over it
Those scratches were on there 2 weeks after I got the fork.
If you get rid of the hayes brakes, and go with Avid. The scratches will self heal.
They are avid brakes. I'd sooner want XT levers with saint calipers instead now.
that's a hayes rotor. Isn't it?
I thought that was what stickers were for
to cover scratches???
Well I tried to give you a way out. Obviously your skilz need honed.
The two bottom ones was from crashing in a rock garden, the top most one I accidently did myself when I decided to ghost ride the bike.
reading the reviews and how they are currently performing... I a little edgy about the Hayes Soles.
sorry to jack the thread.
Thats alright, the first ride, I scracthed my Dawg down to the metal lol.

Um.. congrats? It's a mountain bike it's supposed to look like that if it's being used properly.
