I've just taken the plunge and purchased the Carbon SI Rush 2. One of my key areas for biking apart from being a sweet ride is the durability of it's finish due to the environment it's used in (UK wet & muddy at the moment ). I understand it's not going to have the same protection as an anodised frame but surely the clear laquer shouldn't scratch so easily. Patches are needed in places where cables contact with the frame, but it seems that after it's first clean down any contact made with mud etc will cause some form of abrasion mark to the laquer, so I can see the frame looking tatty very quickly. Surely for a £3000 bike durability of it's finish should be one of many key factors.
It just seems to be over shadowing what seems to be a very good bike.
Any polish/cleaning solutions available to keep the frame protected from further marking.
