    Another Mojo SLR Paint Question (Matte Black)

    Hi Guys,

    I am about to pull the trigger on a new Mojo SLR and was hoping someone could share some information regarding the Matte Black paintjob .

    I was advised by close buddy of the following :

    -Rubbery, and have tendency to melt at certain hot climate country
    -Difficult to maintain , dirt occasionally sticks to the frame , like a bloody magnet dust puller .
    -Colour fade after prolong use?
    -Also, is there a need for a special solution to 'treat' matte carbon colour ?

    Coming from a current SL user(me) , I have had no issues with my white paint job hence kinda surprised when i was told to be careful of the matte colour.

    Appreciate the feedback

    Cheers,

    Saltz

    Your buddy is probably thinking of the rubberized paints that Ibis used for a while on the Mojo SL. These tended to go funny in hot climates.

    Not aware of any issues on the matte black for the SLR.

    Hmmm alrighty , rubberized paint aside , is frame colour care significantly more tedious compared to white/silver/etc due to the finish of the paint?

    Eg : Tendency of frame to attract dirt/dust due to paint finish (not black colour choice)
