    It’ll be fine. Nail varninsh if your not too bothered and you just want a protective coat but it won’t be an issue if you leave it.

    hello, just like to let you know you can use halfords car chip/scratch touch up paint to cover it. they do lots and lots of colours and they come in a little pen/brush thing thats really quite easy to use. i use matt black on my kona (which is also black) and it does a really good job of covering any chips or scrapes, you have to be really looking hard to spot them! its £4.49 (so pretty cheap) and should last you for a good while, i use mine regularly and ive had it for 2 years and its not run out yet.

    heres a link.
