Boardman Carbon Bikes
Having just returned to cycling after a couple of decades absence - bought new Boardman carbon bikes by mail order. Mine is lovely and shiny white, but other half's is a dull, cloudy black, well, grey in places, uneven lacquer finish. Halfords have told me this is normal, and the bike has been ridden, and now cannot be exchanged unless it is faulty. I do not have a Halfords store nearby, so could other owners plse tell me is this a normal feature, or could it indeed have a faulty finish?
