Painted red. Sorry for the lame pics, It's been cloudy/rainy all week. I'll take new pics when the sun comes out.

For all those looking for paint in the US here it is. It's super expensive at ~$60 a pint without the reducer. The paint guy says it's because red pigment is really expensive.

Red is always more expensive. Nice paint job though. I haven't painted anything in a long time, but I know how much GOOD paint helps make the job that much easier....again, nice job!!!

How exactly does that mount? Does it go in place of the seat or on top of the seat. Does it remove easily? Nice work by the way!!

Their carbon is AMAZING, I've never seen carbon this good. Very thin and smooth on both sides with out any air bubbles, clarity is amazing. The amazing thing to me is how thin it is but also how strong it is. I have had many carbon items on all my bikes I have owned and this ranks on the top. I HIGH recommend CarbonWorld, to bad there is no US distributer. There shipping is very reasonable but also slow.

The mounting is very simple yet very ingenious. The only place it hooks on is the very rear of the seat. The front is held on by the front seat when the rear seat w/ cover is put on. The thing that makes this design work is that the cover tightly covers the seat, the tolerances are quite amazing (third time I used that word). Since it conforms to the rear seat perfectly the cover can not come off since there is no where for it to go.

Everyone looking for a solo seat at somewhat reasonable cost need to get this one. The eMoto one is also nice but very $$$. Their new plastic one is even more expensive this this carbon one. I prefer the shape of CarbonWorld over the eMoto plastic one because it's raised above the seat on the top giving a more for a cowl appearance rather than just a plastic shaped seat. Just my opinion, now spam necessary
