I don't think cervelo have released a single mass market carbon on view frame for years and years. To me this speaks of economics rather than the personal taste of cervelo designers.

You are probably right. It probably takes more work and $$$ to have a beautiful top layer of braided carbon. I have an old Time frame and the carbon finish work that shows through the clearcoat is simply gorgeous.

The frame hasn't changed from previous years so I'm guessing just the difference between old and new Ultegra?

Seems the frames are now shown on the Cervelo website. So you can get grey-fluoro or red-black frames.

In my experience, pretty ugly.
