Metallic or Flamboyant hardiness?
I searched for this but couldn't come up with a clear answer...
I'm about to order a new frame (a Bob Jackson World Tour). There are two colors which would be fine, one "metallic", the other "flamboyant".
Is there any advantage of the one over the other for hardiness... I'll be doing fully loaded touring, so the bike will get knocked about a bit and put in planes, busses etc. It's not important to me that it stays "pristine" but would the paint job make a difference?
Or would "enamel" be even better?
