    The new colors

    Are good looking! Yes, there's something about naked carbon, but Ibis' early 07 color offerings are worth the measely $100 upgrade.

    It will be pretty cool when the thing we "discuss" is the choice of whether to color or to go naked.

    Personally I am a huge fan of the carbon look, but was somewhat tempted once I saw the close ups in the virtual booth.

    Durability

    I wonder how durable the finish is(colors)? Is this just paint over the naked finish?

    Paint

    Howdy Gents,
    It's paint over the carbon, just happens to be colored instead of clear. Well, there's a clear coat on top of the color coat. So the durability will be about the same as the 'naked' bike which really isn't naked.
    You can see studio shots of a couple of the other colors here
    Thanks for piping in on the forum.

    The colors came out beautiful, that green one would match my 05 Sunday well, and the Electric blue is spot on for my 06/07 Sunday that I have now. I love it.
