what do you guys think of the drop bar?

And more importantly, what colour grip tape shall I go for?

I was dead set on orange, with a black saddle with orange trim (and maybe orange tyres) and I think the blue would go really well with that, although in hindsight I think the red detailing on the frame will spoil the look?...
Maybe black tape? or Salsa Rasta!?

I think that you should match the tape to the seat,for extra gayness :lol: only joking :lol: matched tape will work great.

I think ive managed to push some of the gay back into the closet, the build has come along nicely with its black and blue theme.
Only the rear wheel rebuild and fit a Charge Spoon saddle left to do and very happy with the outcome so far..
This is one comfy rig. And those Avid mechanical discs are very impressive..cant believe I hadnt considered them over hydraulics before, best of both worlds.
Also chuffed with the bargain Schwalbe tan walls I came across in my LBS. Was planning on all black tyres but somehow I think these really suit the hint of retroness in this On-One frame?...
