I have a Heritage and a carbon fiber BMC airbox, and yup the colors look close enough to me. And the Heritage does have a silver/grey tint.

Eh, it's certainly a darker tone.

I'll rephrase my color idea to say that I want to see it in a silver/gray color. How about that Mr. Sourhead?

From the 2012 NS catalog "A very durable, scratch and chip resistant material with a high tech carbon fiber like visual". It's not carbon fiber. the carbon isn't the main strength of the carbon fiber sheet's scratch/chip resistance anyways, it's more the resin used.

Sad. anyways, definitely get the white base if you can, from what I've heard. You can see the carbon stringer X's through it.

Nah, already ordered the Black base - easier to spot when the base is getting dry & in need of a wax.

Not hard at all. Just check the black portion of the white base and you're good to go. Alternatively, set a static amount of ride days before you wax. Mine is always after two outings unless I'm on vacation in which I might just say "fuck it".

You can also always run your hand along the base and feel the roughness when it's dry.

I like the white because you can spot gunk way better. And yes, you can see the carbon stringers with the white base. You can make it out in one of the pics that I provided.

Personally I prefer the black base. Hides the slight nicks and scratches you get from riding and easier (for the do it yourself repairer) to fix cleanly. You can still see the stringers on the black base, just not as easily as the white base.
