Im asking becuse im under the impression that the pedal force s2 or whaever the model it is, that is painted in red, it was painted over the clear coat. Some other brands like kuota for example have been painted over the clear coat also. The questio is what de used to paint the frames.
Carbon frames are made by embedding carbon fiber cloth in epoxy binder (simple explanation). The epoxy outer surface is typically coated with a layer of paint (typically clear) to improve the gloss and dress up the appearance. You can paint additional layers on top of the factory paint if you like. It's best to use a stable base layer such as PPG DP Primer first. Of course, it's always best to test compatibility when applying a any paint over a factory finish.
Hope this helps.
Becareful buying/selling bike parts on-line. I learned the hard way. :(
