Recently the board software has been updated and there are some known bugs/failures:
- Avatars are currently not being displayed
- Tapatalk connection is currently broken

Those bugs will be fixed ASAP (next few days) as they are unfortunately more serious than expected.

If you find more errors please post it here: http://weightweenies.starbike.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=139062

I have a matte black SuperSix HighMod and it appears as if the clear coat is oxidizing/fading. Can anything be done/applied to frame to protect it? Concerned about negative effects of exposing carbon to the elements if any. Will try to get pics up asap...

It's not fading it is just they way the carbon looks. I assume this is on your top tube I thought they same thing took bike to the LBS and they said it was fine. If you go look at a new bike on the floor of a shop it will look the same as your bike.

I'm guessing the black that you are seeing isn't carbon at all - it is black paint. Sand the matte paint off and you will see carbon weave.
