    i'm guessing there's less than 2 rolls of tape on that bike, where do you buy 14 lb electrical tape?

    it should be noted that tape adhesive will eat away paint after a few years.

    I dont have any super (aero?) wheels. My bike weighs 20 pounds, thank you very much.

    If you missed it, this is not my bike.

    Definitely *is* a Pista Concept. Belongs to the same guy who has the crazy asymmetrical Yamaguchi and a bunch of other really nice rides.

    This **** is old, anyway.

    EDIT: Here's the Pista Concept on his flickr: http://www.flickr.com/photos/dancing...on/1693948937/

    why?
    do you also keep your couch wrapped in plastic?

    mostly looks like a total lack of maintenance of your components. the frame itself looks pretty normal for a bike that gets ridden on the street. clean it up & it would be fine.

    if your tape bike is so nice that you have to cover every inch of it to avoid scratches and paint chips, I hope you dont freak the *** out when you pull off the tape in a few years...

    tape isn't going to help you if you don't put some oil on that chain.
    Maybe could use a seat post and saddle, too.

    black spray paint would be easier
    and electrical tape gets nasty after a while, especially after being in the sun?
    And then the goo starts oozing out? and then **** sticks to it.
    electrical tape bikes = fail....just sayin
