Can I be so bold as to submit my recently finished Vitus 992. A bit of an eBay queen but it's my main rider and is a real joy. Zonda wheels and a Athena/Chorus mix but the ride is great and it really puts a smile on my face whenever I ride it.

Ha, i was waiting for that. I pondered over the colour, but figured black or silver would be lame, just wanted something neutral and stand alone, so settled for classic Cinelli camo-yellow

Hope your not offended mate :!:

I'd have gone for Ambrosio Tape in white or black but after-all its your bike and if your happy its got nothing to do with anyone else :wink:

Have you seen that 'carbon effect' Cinelli tape ? Looks mint !

I agree, love the stuff. I've got both silver on one bike and gold on another. I think silver would look ace on this vitus, keeping almost everything black and silver. Look make a really nice bright silver tape which isn't easy to find anywhere, probably only CRC:
