I wonder if someone can help with this.
Im just finishing a bike build to which I have fitted Easton EC90 carbon bars whilst swapping stems ( both easton) I noticed marks under the clamping section on carbon bars like minor chips where the clamp has been.
The stem was torqued down to the correct setting with a new torque wrench are thes marks normal or should I be concerned?

    If they are surface scratches only it is rpobably just the top laquer flaking slightly, I have had similar marks on bars installed also using a torque wrench
