New bike ownership fail.


I hung a set of soft panniers over the back of the bike and rode it all winter. At the weekend I removed them to give the bike a wash, and grime had accumulated in there and scraped the paintwork on both sides. One spot is so bad the paint is worn through, albeit a pinprick-sized hole. I’ll be buying a polish to remove the blotches, but I may choose to get a professional to restore the back faring properly. It all depends on cost, but for time being a bottle of polish and some elbow grease will suffice. A painful lesson has been learned.
