ha, that's a very good point. One of the bolts with the eyes on it has worked its way loose and I lost it, therefore it wouldn't fit without rattling. It will make it on eventually though.
I think the tape looks okay but it's difficult to get a colour to go with a red bike that's not black, and black is a little boring in my opinion . . . .
I see your point, but black tape would look good against the black saddle I think, would look more classy IMO. Still great though
ha, truth be told I thought black would look great too, but with the escalating costs of the build, I already had a pack of Specialized Rubaix tape, so thought I would stick it on. Of course, the opposite end of the spectrum is that anything other than black gets really dirty looking pretty quickly . . .
As for that "Randonneur", the only other ones I have seen are the grey one ( mine pictured below with "upgrades"), an orange one, a lighter blue one and of course a red one, so I amn't 100% sure what to make of it. Didn't stop me making a bid for it the other day though!
I have seen a tendency to see alot of bikes tagged as a randonneur, but of course this one comes with the decals to match. Has anyone sent the seller a message for more info?
