    Awww, too bad!
    I kinda miss that subtle "woven carbon fibre" look that was on the old Cab 10 from decades ago...

    That's not what raw graphite looks like. That's what woven graphite looks like. Woven graphite costs substantially more.

    If not completely raw, how about partially raw? With certain areas of the frame and shaft clear coated to subtly reveal the underlying carbon fibre weave and other areas covered with design and paint. I would think that would be teh s3x!:cool::cool::cool::D:D:D

    We could take a show of hands to see if it wouls sell...

    All these questions = no good, just design something you like. Panda will either say "yay" or "nay" to it. :p

    Really? But I swear the Cab 10 has the carbon fibre look!
    (and I don't think it was woven graphite at that time 20 years ago)

    Do you know what I mean? Do you have one to look at?
    If not, maybe I can take a picture and post it...

    Okay, here's a closeup pic of my old Cab 20 frame, showing the carbon fibre.
    I don't think it was woven at that time, was it?:confused:

    This is the partially exposed look that I was referring to.:D

    If someone is clever modify the existing t2 by taking out the red and put in a nice green. Black, white, and green look really nice together. :D

    Santa would approve and reward you I am sure;)


    Can't wait for the comparison review between the t1 and t2, or a tidbit more info.

    I didn't add any words, and can do recolours off of this design, so here goes...

    I vote that the prospective designs be moved to their own thread for ease of review and submission.
