Is it ok to paint carbon fibre, I have a new frame coming from the states but its in laquered raw state and although I like to see the weave I would like to see some colour on it too

yep. make sure you lacquer the whole frame after though other wise the edge of the paint chips very easily, you could feather it out at the edges but if you dont want a fade its best to lacquer the whole frame.
