    As far as I know, there's nothing you can do besides paint or refinish it. There are some talented people on this forum that you could send them to. I'm not sure of their prices however

    IMHO the Carbon Juliet isn't really black.... The ones I've seen have sort of a brownish hue to them. The X Man refinishes frames in black. The finish is as black as can be and the texture is smooth as Plasma. Colorwise its not a Flat Black but more of a Matte Black with a little sheen to them. Here are a few examples of the ones he's done for me...

    +1...the older carbon frames do seem to have a brownish hue to them, but the newer carbon frames not as much...they are a little bit darker in color.
