Cant wait to see all the carbon fiber sexyness!

I have been interested in buying some from them but have been on the fence. I dont see a lot of pictures of people with them so I would hate to spend that kinda money to be dissapointed. When i do find pix they are always close up of the fiber and i want to see the overall look.
