Would you like it better with a solid custom paintjob or would you like the trite and common stock 2-color fade paintjob?

The ones I like the most are the clear coated ones!That way you can see if the carbon in there is okay or if it is about to fail!

doing the bare carbon with a clearcoat over it?

Something about it being easier to lay the carbon the best way possible without having to worry about how it looked.

Can you see the carbon weave? If so,is it only on parts of it or can you see the bare carbon everywhere?
except for the decalsdtufts

except for the decal (and there are tons of those) you can see the carbon and you can clearly see the joints for the lugs. I prefer the postal scheme, myself.

not sure they still make them that way but I've seen them in stores. There was a clear, ruby, and yellow clear coat. The yellow's really amazing. As mentioned, it takes more time to lay out the carbon to look nice if the frame's not going to be painted.

one of these days I have to buy a digital camera and post a pic.
mmmm, red...wolfereeno
