Pink or black tape?
Exactly what I was going to say. White would go nice.
Black, pink or white would look great. Maybe leaning towards pink as silver bars/stem.
Indeed white or pink, no black. Too dark.
I've got a pink Cinelli cork I can try.
Mmm maybe white.
I had a Pelten shade which is the same as in the catalog, but I think I've sold it ?
I think if you go with pink you would want to match it closer to the frame. Sure supacaz or similar would have some hot pink bartape that would match.
Agree. That pink is too dull compared to the pink of the frame.
I'll go white. Thanks all!
Went for white .
Unfortunately the rear tyre has a flat so couldn't ride it just yet!
This is lovely.
I'm sure your bum likes the Brooks but it might look 'better' with something white and a bit racey.
I don't think those bars should really have a flat top, tilted down a bit further with the levers brought up would be ideal, just my opinion though.
Exaggerated but like so:
It's super tricky with traditional drops because shifters are just not made for them anymore.
I was mulling over the possibility of the inside of the bar clamp being wedge shaped with the wedge being reversible so one side gives the shifter body a compact angle of exit and the other a traditional angle of exit. I am not an engineer though.
TRP single speed levers come with a plastic thingy which goes in the back of the lever body and presses against the bar, changing the angle they sit at. Something like that would work on shifters but I probably not something you could really retrofit yourself
And here I was thinking I'd had a good and original idea.
Yes yes, it's in the plans. I don't have a more racey and modern saddle at the moment
Yeah they do not. I am OK the way I've set them up. Somehow never liked the lower part being parallel with tube or ground.
Btw I went for regular stem and headset as I had managed to ruin the inn headset :/ The new fork steerer seems to have VERY tight clearances and the inn stem didn't want to go below certain limit. I forced it and actually broke the epoxy bond inside.
