I got this frame and fork a while ago and collected the parts, with the intention of building it up as a 'Sunday best bike / garage queen', and It's my 1st bike with "brifters". It'll also probably be used for a few Flanders and London to Paris type things. The girlfriends brother and brother in law are dead keen (and I'm to mean to buy a nice new plastic fantastIc).
But I'm left wondering what colour for the tape and saddle? I was thinking white Rolls and white perforated tape? But a trip to the LBS showed me some yellows and pinks..
ANY views appreciated..
(I've got a spare black Rolls, should I decide on a non white bar tape).
