As I mentioned before, that bar tape is pretty cool. What's the texture like and how thick is it? I've really been enjoying Fizik's Performance tape and would be curious how this compares to the Cinelli Caleido.

Thanks, guys.

I've never used Fizik performance tape, so can't compare directly.

I have used their superlight tape before and the caleido is definitely more cushy and comfortable.

We'll have to see about durability as time goes by.

As it stands today.

Might switch to another headset eventually (like a CK in "pewter"), but it's a purely aesthetic thing that I'm fine with putting off indefinitely.

I'm pleased with it as it is, especially after some fine-tuning of angles, heights, etc. here and there. Damn near perfect.

How do you like the Concor Light? Same saddle I am using, and I'm not sold on it yet.

I got rid of my pewter because it looked purple to me.

Saddles are a very subjective thing. I've tried a bunch of different ones and always come back to the Concor Light.

I used to like Flites, but the slightly wider, shorter body, along with the more pronounced curve, of the Concor Light, just worked better with my sit bones and won me over.

Interesting fact on the pewter CK headset. Any other headset suggestions?

You have enough silver touches that I don't mind the current one. A black sotto vice may work nicely though.

I wouldnt go with a pewter HS, its a nice classy color and all but your bike has so many nice touches of silver that the silver works great.


Great bike, think I saw you on Franklyn a few months ago and the color in real life is crazy.
