  • Stealth!
  • I have one of each though prefer the finish of the white

    One of each, now why didn't i think of that. Dont think the other half would understand the logic though. I think i prefer the stealthy look of the black, but i know from experience that the matt frames are a pain to clean...... but then the white looks good also....... Doh!!......help...

  • I just wipe my matte one down with a cloth every now and again, far easier than my old gloss bike.

    What's the paint quality like? I have heard on the soft side, but always looks good have to say ...
  • Black. But then I would say that - have a stealth CF SLX 8.0 arriving this week (hopefully...) :D

    Definitely black. The white has too many logos on it and tbh I think looks cheap. I love my stealth slx and so do others based on the number of unprompted good comments it receives.

  • Everyones going to say something different. I like mine, its white and doesnt look cheap imo :wink: ;

  • Basically, they are both wonderful.

    White one's heavier mind :D

    censored ...... decided on the stealth, checked availability,... you guessed it, sold out in my size, and in the white. 2013 model on the horizon, more time to save and poss upgrade.
