I could only build it with what was to hand so as not to go ceramic balls deep into a build, ride it and find it was a load of old toot.

I have amberwall tyres to hand if require but the rest I leave to you - I may or may not take any notice.

So tyre suggestions, tape suggestions and cable outer please.

Ta.

I don't know what it is about coloured tyres, but I just go :facepalm: every time.

They came with the wheels and are around 200g - I can ignore the colour for that alone.

Black tyres (Michelin Pro4Endurance are my faves at present), black outers, but dark blue bar tape is a possibility to avoid the all black heavy butcher's bike look.

There are too many all black bikes around at present.

Black tape and outers, maybe amber wall tyres, but failing that it's black again!

Thanks but thats all a bit dull! Think back to the 1990's, splash tape and colourful paint jobs

Seems a shame just to go 'black'
