Just a quick snap with a dark background -
My eyes keep going to the saddle - I think it needs toning down and hence Grey would be ideal. But Roly @Rod_Saetan says it more Blue than Grey (the Turbo saddle I showed in a post above) - Im probably colourblind but it looks more grey to me - then again I’m looking at a picture - But even if it’s more blue than grey I still think it’d suit.
And the top of the Ritchey Seatpost isn’t the most attractive - the Flite Ti reveals it a bit too much hence I think a Turbo would suit better

Turbo will look great.

But as I said elsewhere, I'd go white.

Perforated white.
the grey weren’t grey! More of a blue 😥
White perforated - lovely, but can’t find it anywhere. So looks like I might have to splash out for the white Turbo Lite or a normal white Turbo which is £49.99 new from Condor cycles

I’ll also be changing the brakes for something else - I broke one of the canti mount plastic surround where the spring goes and effed up the spring trying to get it out again - disaster. If I had some spares I could stick with these
Quick question - would the Diacompe 987 have the same parts ? If so I could pick one of those up and salvage the spring and surround

Thank you Roly @Rod_Saetan for the blue TISO seat binder bolt.
Also some Ti crank bolts and Ti bottle cage bolts.
Just awaiting the Turbo Lite saddle and the brake spares so I can get her completed.

I’m not happy with the look - after studying from every angle and realising that there’s something not quite right...
😩

Ah, patience then!

White Turbo will solve one problem, once you’ve tracked one down.

And I still reckon going back to those black Ritchey grips would solve the other.

The black would balance against the black on the tyres and cables. Plus decals here and there.

Thanks man
Having been looking at nothing but saddles for days - and unable to afford the saddle I would want (a Gipiemme Pluma Ti) my eyes keep going back to the Turbo Lite. And back to the WCS grips!
