    Easton Monkeylite - shifter clamp scratched the bar, still safe?

    I installed a new Easton Monkeylite XC bar yesterday and did not pay attention to the inside clamps as one of my shifter clamps was not smooth on the inside edges. Now I have a few scratches where if I run my finger nail across it gets caught. It doesn't look deep, but now i'm worried. I did not over torque it either.

    Hopefully I did not waste $80 on a new carbon bar and have not even hit the trail.

    CF parts have a clear coat over the fiber weave. Your bar is fine. Ride on.
