I have read some posts about Canyons frames paint defects. Mainly on black matte finish frames.
I wonder if these problems still occurs on new 16/17' bikes/framesets.... :?:

Has anyone else experienced any problems with paint quality on Canyons frame?

I am keen to order 2016 Ultimate CF SLX rimbrakes framset but I hesitate after reading some complaints.

Thanks for feedback

I've had a '14 model, and paint was sub-par. The newer models are a lot better (I own a '16 Endurace), but the matt paint still turn gloss/ shiny to easily on the toptube, where you occasionally rub with your legs while riding. Riding buddies with matt frames other than Canyon don't seem to have those isues, but Canyons have been my only matt frames, so I can't compare. For the rest, I have to say that the matt paint on Canyons is really good at staying scratch free!!
