    The Pista, lets do it again....

    So I thought about what you guys said and concurred that it was too much celeste going on so I changed it up again....Im was thinking about scoring another saddle (yellow or black) but rather just ride this one out for a while until I wear it out unless someone wants to take it off my hands beforehand.



    Its a fantastic ride BTW.

    Get your eyes checked If you think that yellow looks good with that green.

    You are missing some cones my friend.

    I think it breaks it up and is different but like I said, opinions welcome.

    Kudos for getting Krylion Carbon, they're good set of tires.

    Also, you might want to move where you place your computer.

    I would say over either setup pictured a set of all black tires with black bar tape would be a great deal of improvement.

    If you only ride the bike on the street which it looks like you do, I recommend conti grand prix 4000. Great tire all around. Last around 3k, I've got about 1.5 on mine.

    Hmmm...that yellow is interesting. I always thought white complemented the celeste nicely, but that's just me.

    I think the tires are a huge improvement. I'd maybe go with a black saddle instead of more yellow. So its a Celeste - Black - Yellow bike instead of Celeste - Yellow - Black. Know what I mean? Part of me wishes the bar tape was black, and instead the yellow was kept to smaller accents, like straps or brake components. I like the yellow with the celeste but in large portions like that bar tape it starts to clash a little.

    I honestly don't think it looks better... but if you like it that's great for you man. Frame is sick.

    The bars and the stem have to go. That seat post and seat tube combo are mismatched as well. Not that you can really do anything about it.

    I liked the "before" tire setup much better. I would use the celeste tires, black tape, and a black saddle.

    Black bar tape and fixing the brake setup on the bullhorns and you would have been set.
    After all of the things I have done, I hate myself for what i have become.

    you need to stop caring so much about what people here think, it's your bike, looked better before
    It's none of my business what other people think of me.

    Although, I like the Pista Concepts better than the SUper Pista's.

    there is no such thing as too much celeste!!!

    i think it looked great before, the only things i would change would be the seatpost, flip the stem, point the horns a little more down and loose the brake.....but thats just me, its your bike build it how YOU want it
