Am i correct in saying there is a light and dark grey finish available?

really like the look of the darker finish but i can't seem to find any confirmation anywhere....

Thanks in advance

    AFAIK there's only one finish, which is basically dark grey. Some of the product shots make it look lighter than it really is.
  • No, there's definitely two, a normal light-grey/silver and a very dark-grey/graphitey/almost black shade, but these seem to be very rare.
  • 6700 has to finishes but 6800 only has one which is slightly lighter than the darker 6700 version. I certainly wouldn't say it's as dark as graphite grey. It also has gloss and matt areas to the finish which isn't clear from the photos.
  • Just bought a 6800 group and only ever saw one colour option. There was 2 options for 6700, silver and grey and you would always get the option when buying. I agree that some of the pictures do make the grey look lighter than it actually is.

    Just as an aside I found Tweeks cycles to be the cheapest by far for 6800 parts.

    6800 is only available in this colour
