    Salsa El Santo paint

    mine is an 06 el santo that i've been enjoying since day one. of course it does have some minor scratches due to trail use, and it doesn't bother me at all. what bothers me are those bubbling-like effect that appeared on some part, particularly at the base of the cable guide on top tube and around the shock mount on the down tube.

    it chiped-off when i tried scratching it with my bare fingers!

    i appreciate any reply to shed some light.

    thanks!

    Salsa's paint quality is unfortunately known for being thin and easily scratched. They do not offer touchup paint, but most automotive paint shops could make you some. Otherwise, just keep on ridin & smilin!
