    What color bar tape should I get?

    I have this bike with drop bars and cane creek levers and I just wanted some opinions on what color bar tape I should get. I was thinking gray or black.

    I'd get what ever color russled my jimmies but I'd probably match the head tube sticker then as money got better match the saddle to the tape because it needs a splash of color

    I'd go with a bright blue or something. Just to give a little pop. Maybe find a saddle to match, as said previously.

    Go classy. Brown leather and then a brown leather saddle to match later.

    Ya'll didn't know I could relate to all the young persons, I can has internets too!


    If you are looking for good tape, I like my Fizik 3mm tape (mine happens to be black) though I will say my FG and my Cilo are both running harlequin wrapped cloth tape (red and black on the FG and eggplant and white into eggplant and black on my Cilo) so I do have a love for the cloth stuff.

    Use steel bars.
    Leave them unwrapped and the bike out in the rain.
    Let bars rust.
    You will then have naturally coloured bars with a rough surface that offers good grip.

    Apart from that, why the hell does my fashion opinion matter? I'm happy to advise on type of bar tape but colour? Grow some balls man and make up your own mind. It's not hard to change if you decide you got it wrong.
    I had a good bike ... so I FIXED it
