I very recently purchased a new 2004 Trek carbon bike – in the “nude carbon” color. I love the bike – all Dura-Ace – no complaints at all. Maybe.
Does anyone know what the nude carbon should look like? Basically my bike is black with grey and white trim. My wife wonders if the “splotchy” look is normal. I had just assumed that’s the way it’s supposed to look, but she thinks otherwise. To me, if it weren’t for this sort of sanded appearance, it would simply be a black bike.
Anyway, I thought I would get some input before making a fool of myself by complaining about the “paint job”.
