    Scratch on stanchions

    So I have a tiny little scratch on my fork stanchions, its not sharp, just slightly indented, but only by a tiny bit, is it ok to keep riding on?

    Yup. Get some clear fingernail polish and some micro mesh sandpaper. Fill it and sand off to 2000 grit. Good to go.

    If it's not biting into your finger nails and it's tiny as you say, leave it alone.

    If there are no protrusions, I would do nothing.
    Do the math.
