Besides by the time you tape the bars, put on the mounting bracket for your handlebarbag, and mount your computer; there will not be much black showing.
Regarding fit, I really like the feel of the oversized specialized bar. Wouldn't it make sense to start with the bar I like and adjust the fit from there?

I am caring less about the color. I don't think black would look so bad and as you say most of the exposed black will be covered. All things being equal though, I like the look of the Soma Highway 1.... so I have choices. Thanks.
