i have to say i have always hated multi coloured tape, i understand the idea of matching the tape to the bike colour but the reason i don't like it is because i think it looks messy.

a single colour tape looks neat and tidy to me. i like black or white. black mainly because it looks good for longer but white on the right bike i think looks great.

i like the ultegra 600 though, i have always liked that group, don't know why as i generally prefer campagnolo on road bikes.

the frame colours are cool aswel.

:D

Usually i agree with the anti-splash arguement, but... i think it looks 'right' here, is also consistent with age of frame and contemporary fashion at time. Be a shame to lose an 'original' feature of the bike!

Oh dear... now I'm in a quandry. I hvae ordered and fitted a Selle Regal Titanium white saddle. It really looks good. I ordered some white tape to go with it but not put it on yet. :? What to do?

There is only really one sensible solution here:- again the turbomatic saddle is already a super fine and fitting component on the Cougar - those little yellow elastomers were every school boys dream. But the white selle regal saddle is also a lovely piece. Such a lovely piece in fact, it would be worth building a bike around! And it wouldn't be too expensive, cos you already have some other parts lying around to use (bar tape)...

Good luck, I can't wait to see the finished product ;)
