I tend to love the imperfect hand made pieces. Nothing is more fun than gawking at the carbon on race going machines with uneven wrinkled weave.
Well you two should be fast friends! :stickpokerchasepersonally I prefer claved 2 twill nice and dull, doesn't have the super high gloss resin finish that you would tend to get with wet lay or even resin infusion techniques
Very cool. The hand made stuff is always very cool. It has a bespoke feel to it. The shiny mass produced stuff of Asian origin looks like it should be bolted to a Honda Civic rather than an MV.personally I prefer claved 2 twill nice and dull, doesn't have the super high gloss resin finish that you would tend to get with wet lay or even resin infusion techniques
To each their own. As a joke I bought some of the cheap looking carbon for my R6 because of it's advanced age and "throw away" value. It's quite interesting people's reactions. They don't see the old bike anymore. Just the carbon bits. Still waiting for that extra speed from the weight savings though.I like the cheap, shiny stuff on my MV but the matte full carbon weave on my 916. Not really sure why.
If you love them that's all that matters. Style is a personal choice. I have seen your machine in your registry entry. I still love your gold dzus fasteners that match your wheels.Of course. Some want the best carbon pieces and I admire them for their exigency. Call me the carbon uncouth. It's ok. I have Bestem, Shift Tech, and carbonworld.de pieces on my bike, and truly can't tell the difference between them. Don't really care for their origin. I'm not INS. So far they've all held up well in almost daily NYC riding (read jarring).
