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

Hot! I know to each their own, but I love the blue tires! And the black bar tap keeps the subtlety level down a bit - blue or white would be too much. As an aside, how do you like those wheels? I've been comtemplating those or the 19's as I'm fairly light.

I like it....I would leave like this for the season and enjoy the colour and then over the off season I'd switch out the tires and maybe try a different colour accent or thinner pin stripe. The accent colour looks good to me.

The blue stripe is covering an existing white stripe so I am not sure if a thinner stripe would work. But who knows doesn't hurt to give it a shot. I'd bet this would be a little better if the Williams didn't have so much lettering going on, but I don't want to remove the logos :-/

Thinner tape(1/2 width), cut it off @ the Top tube, let it run the full length of the TT.

Agreed.
Ride it as is, wear out the tires too, I like them, they draw attention to your rims.
Heck I run white/black tires on my white/black/grey bike. It doesn't belong in this thread, but I will post it somewhere in the 41...

HAWT! I like it. I like bikes that don't look like 1000 other people have. If I saw this rolling down the road it would turn my head!

I'd take a little less post rather than a 150mm stem with 20mm worth of spacers under it.

Not hot...and I like "classic" bikes.

Frame is too small for you. On a classic styled frame, that much post is just wrong.
Too much rear brake cable. Needs to be shortened about a half a foot.
Lack of quill stem.
No need for gum hoods, black would look better.

That frame couldn't fit me any better if it were custom made and I get ridiculed for it being too big... lol, yeah it's huge considering I have a 120mm stem and a setback post with the saddle most of the way back. It's tall enough that there are no spacers and my back is flat in the drops. It's OK though, I don't really expect much from bike forums these days. Half the bikes posted here are obviously not fit well at all but all anyone here cares about is the name on the downtube and how much drop you have. I honestly don't even know why I bother sometimes.

If by funky you mean 'how racing bikes used to be' then I'd say that's accurate.
