    Paint touch up

    Just picked up a new Trek Fuel EX9.8 a couple weeks ago. Was leaning the bike up against a rock with the pedals when it slipped and scratched up the new carbon frame. I knew it would happen eventually but does anyone know of touch up paint for bikes or have any suggestions?

    Lots of options in the finger polish world. If you have a little money, try to find an automotive paint shop in your area and see what they can offer. There's one around me that can snap a pic and match the paint. It's spendy, but you'll have extra in the exact color you want.
    I don't know why,... it's just MUSS easier to pedal than the other ones.

    Paint touch up

    I'm not worried about an exact match. The bike will get damaged over time which I understand. I'll check out the fingernail polish idea.
