Well, you know how it felt when you found that first little scratch on your auto. It ain't no different when you find that first annoying scratch on your bike either. I found some scratches on my Green Co-Motion Americano and it hurt like crazy :(
I know where these scratches came from. They came from the Cannondale F6's platform pedals. They must have rubbed on the Co-Motion, while in the truck, during transit to the WRL, last weekend.
It sucks and it is painful...But, I have to move on, I suppose. This too shall pass :)
