Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

-black hoods

There is plenty of color happening in that frame. I would keep everything else simple. I think the reason its not hot for a lot of people because it has too much. Its too busy.
If you really wanted the white bartape and saddle, I'd at least get black hoods. Above all else, go black tires though. Colored tires on bikes remind me of little ricer cars that have colored stripes in the tread of their tires.

Pus the fact that a black compound is just better than a colored one.

I'm not too interested in being in this club. just diong it for shts and giggles

don't know if anyone noticed, but that white bar tape is just tennis overgrip. That's about as far as I'll go to make my bike look pretty. I'm not going to spend over $50 to make it look better.

This black and all-black and black-on-black and matte-black stuff is getting really old for me.

Better than the red/white/black phase of a few years ago.

better staging and you could achieve hotness. i'd stick with black tape and saddle however.

I don't really understand the obsession with the matched saddle and bar tape. I guess until they come out with a red Romin I won't achieve hotness cause the red tape stays. I get tired of seeing white bar tape and black tape. I realize that red tape is nothing cutting edge but on small but noticeable parts like handlebars I prefer to match the highlights on the bike. In this case, red.

ugh...NOT...for the other reasons already stated...

...and this is all silliness in the first place, so "no whining about the comments received"....

extending the frame's white-black scheme to the saddle and bars is a nice theory, but doesn't fare well in execution...match them babies up...

....those wheel decals are in the top 2 % most hideous looking, I don't care how well the wheels roll, I just have to avert my eyes when I see them...
