Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

The stem looks exactly like the stem from my 2003 Jamis Comet that I now have on my 2004 Bianchi.

Hmmm... the bars are definitely wonky. However, the seat height looks okay to me. It's hard for us shorter guys to get a lot of seat post showing on bikes with horizontal top tubes. The trick is to find a bike that fits, but raise the seat for your dope photos I'd post my bike here, but it's most definitely NOT hot.

Thank you! Was going straight for the shiny/disco/wet look. Love it

My new 2018 Aeroad. Let me know if you like the all murdered out black look or not. I need to replace the saddle and can't decide if I should go with an accent color for the saddle, bar tape and bottle cages. Was thinking yellow but not seeing many yellow saddles I like. Red is easier to find but I'm not much of a red guy.

Not real keen on the lump-of-coal look, but I do think golden yellow is the best accent color with it. Don't need much, and nothing solid - maybe just a yellow stripe on the saddle, same for the cages, yellow finishing tape only, not full yellow bar tape. When I had a charcoal gray bike, I liked it with yellow stripe/sidewall tires (NOT gumwalls ).

By finishing tape do you mean the 3m 35 electrical tape? What did you think about a Black with yellow splash tape bar tape? I had the Black with Celeste splash on my black and celeste bianchi at least when I could find it in stock.

Yes, typically electrical tape - yellow would be perfect. Maybe you could find some yellow bar ends, too. Splash? No. I think this bike wants something more precise.

You might also try some automobile detailing tape (vinyl pinstripe tape) . . .

Yellow bar tape would look nasty after a month. I wouldn’t do that.

Very nice build. I think it would look better with the stem flipped. Don't like the tire choice for those wheels.

Thx. I will hopefully be able to flip the stem in the future when my flexibility improves and my neck won’t bother me. I have to put a few spacers on to raise me up a bit. I’ve had neck surgery and can’t go too low without having issues. What tires would you put on it? I’m curious. I wanted some tires that have some grip and these are the S-works gripton tires in 25 mm size.

Nasty bar tape is a badge of honor. Shows you ride the bike and not just look at it

Yes. And I was going to say: grimy yellow bar tape on a matte/charcoal bike wouldn't be so bad. What's really offensive is grimy tape on a bright, shiny bike.
