I'm with you all on that one... looking to pick up some handlebra... not in the budget right now, and i've got about 10 rolls of tape to go through first (8 white, 1 red, 2 black)... but later this summer... i use the white on my other bike... so the red and black look like they'll go on this for now....

I voted "Red" but now that I think of it, red stripe tires + red tape may be a bit too much. I'd still go with red tape, but when these wear out switch to all black tires.

Owned and rode a Merckx Faema for quite a while:

I vote for gum walled tires next go around for rubber and white tape. Eddy would want it so:

Unless the red tape isn't too bright, I'd go with black.

I vote move your ergo levers higher up on the bars. They look like they are diving down to the ground..

Wrap with something cheap, contact Ray, get custom HB made and then it's perfect. :banana:

I'll be putting black on later tonight... the bike isn't dialed in at all.. so the bars are low... need to get all the parts on, get it working then dial in the fit.....

Always match the saddle..but considering the tires, and accents..go with black.

Kind of useless since he wrapped the bike 1.5 months ago.:crap:

I was just commenting :) and who knows..he might be riding so often that he needs new tape! Braaaa FTW!

Red saddle, red tape, IMO. Also, a white post to match the white stem. +1 on (Viper)'s comment, tan sidewall tires rule, yesterday, today and tomorrow.

I ended up with black for now as this is my main training bike....handlebra will be next when this wears out...

Beautiful bike, very sharp paint. I would select a black stem with black tape.

Whatever you choose, it will ride like a dream I'm sure.

There is no need to settle on just one color.
