    What color bar tape matches best

    IF I keep this saddle I may change my bar tape color. In past I always had a white saddle which went very nice with white bar tape. I dont think they make my new saddle in white, so that being said what color do you think will look best with my bike?

    I prefer not to have black because it is usually so bland and boring but if it looks the best than I may try it.

    I'd go with a nice plumb paisley.

    Black goes with anything but everyone has black, even me... Maybe red would look good?
    It doesn't get harder, you just go slower.

    It looks fine as it is. Go ride it like you stole it. And no, I didn't bother to vote.

    You have really 3 choices, white, black or red, I voted red, as those colours are already present on that bike. I'm a little surprised though, a Bianche that isn't celeste....

    I voted red because it's my favourite colour. The white will show off dirt and black is dull. So get the red tape.

    Stick with the white if you like it...no one can see the saddle while you're riding anyway...

    Gotta agree with Wog, though...Bianchi should be Celeste

    Red or black. Black might be boring, but sometimes it's the best choice. That's why it's boring (because it's so often the right choice). I think it would look stealth. Red would look flashy but should probably match your tires. White kind of throws the balance off with the black saddle. heh.

    PS I love celeste (a.k.a., "steal-me green").
    Go until you stop, then take a break.

    Depending on how many miles you ride a year, I say black! I had light blue on my bike, 7300 miles one year, 6000 the next, the blue didn't look so hot!...Black!
