its def still rideable, i just went offroad and fell in grass plus i broke the bike's fall and like someone else said, i'd rather just ride than spend the money and time to fix & replace. its only tiny crack on a piece of plastic, screw it. now my shoulder needs to hurry up and heal.

I'll use some touch up paint on some spots. It take hardly anytime and no one notices.

I do keep mine very well maintained and clean. But I'm not going to freak out when it takes a scratch or a ding.

I think if I bought a high end bike I would be prone to riding it less and keep it very meticulus just because I spent so much money on it. I think I would probably freak out if it were scratched or dinged then. Can't see buying a bike that is not going to be riden really.
