I'm just curious if anyone has had scratch issues with their high ball. The reason I ask is because of the lack of the protective top coat. Ice heard horror stories about matte paint and scratching, and maintaining even coloring.

As I understand it there is a protective coat. The paint job isnt just a flat/satin paint, its a normal paint with a satin clear coat over it.

To directly answer your question no, I have had no problems with the paint chipping, scratching, or becoming discolored (even from gas). I have almost 18k miles on it now.

EDIT: I have gotten some chipping paint on the bottom of my forks.. the black part. Thats just from 18k miles of rocks jumping up and hitting it and I guarantee that the gloss bikes have the same issue.
