    Bar tape to match lime green Charge Spoon

    So I'm looking to buy a lime green Charge Spoon and match lime green bar tape to it but you know how hard that can be online. Anyone have that combo in real life?

    I don't have that combo, but you might consider Lizard Skins' DSP 2.5 mm tape. It looks pretty lime-colored to me.

    I think the hard part is that there are many, many different colors that are described as lime green. When you have 2 different shades of lime green, it will look kind of bad (in my opinion). Unless you can find the exact same color, you might be better off choosing a different neutral color that matches the seat.

    Liardskins is definitely my top choice but without seeing the saddle and the bartape together in person there's just no way to know if they will match.

    Fizik sells a couple shades of green tape that might match.

    Two wheels good. Four wheels bad.

    Nice, it makes sense fizik would make the two match. I doubt I can afford a fizik saddle though..

    I guess my only hope is to take the saddle to the lbs and hope they have a color that matches. Or just get plain ol lucky ordering online..

    The pictures I have seen of the Charge Spoon in lime green make it look far more yellow than lime green. I would definitely wait to have it in hand before guessing at a match.

    Both of these pictures are from Wiggle so hopefully they are as true to life as each could be (but who knows)




    And this Deda Cedro (or is it Cedar) Green bar tape:


    How do those compare on everyone else's monitors?

    That is as close as you are going to find I would think. Lets just hope the lighting is now giving it a different shade.

    My monitor is calibrated for photographic work and they look very close to me. On the other hand there is always MANGO!
