    Some gashes on the upper lefty tube

    These have been on the shock since I bought the bike. The scratch are less than a 1/16" deep. I've ridden it a good 150 rough miles with no problems. Is this something I should look into replacing? Could it be dangerous?

    Yep, not a big worry. I recommend folks just get some peel and stick Velcro, and use the soft, "loop" side as a scuff protector, works great, and it's cheap
