Black hoodz and black handlebar tape and this thing would be awesome!

Well Schmolke TLO doesn't really qualify for "ready to race" sticker (I mean, I absolutely trust them but obey for the rule, don't race which you can't replace ;) ), however, the bike is nice. And black hoods definitely, please.

I'm going to buck the trend and say - stick with the red hoods. I like the splash of colour in a see of black stealth bikes...

TLO's are widely available therefore "replaceable"

Classy looking bike. Red up front is very lively. Maybe a bit more work on bar taping technique to make it looking better (black gap under the hoods and the tape's red section on the right side shouln't go beyond the hood's line, as it's done on the other side).

For 400+ EUR no problem indeed ;) (disclaimer: I own one as well)

Glad to see another Simplon on the forum! I bought my first Pavo III frameset in 2013 and was thoroughly enjoying the bike until a stupid old ba*tard knocked me off. I was badly messed up and, although the frame didn't appeared to damaged at all, I didn't want to take a chance so it had to be retired. One trip to A&E was enough! Anyhow I had been so impressed with the Simplon I bought another one exactly the same! I've built it up Campag Record EPS as my race bike and it's a superb piece of kit. Hopefully post some snaps on the forum shortly.

nice, understated bike with clean and modest appearance, free from embellishment.
i like the red touches.

and very refreshing, to see something else from time to time, in this endless stream of cannondale/canyon/specialized and trek-bikes, mixed with some colnagos and a few other popular italian brands.

Even in Austria you don't see many of these Pavo's regularly.
Nice build.
Clean up the tape to really polish it off.

Thank you for reply and sorry for my late answer.

I will correct this bar tape. Actually I don't use this bike now, becouse we have winter in center Europe. Just can't wait for sunny days.

I'm thinking what more can I change in this bike. I want to set up lighter skewers and maybe brakes, but I don't know which ones should I choose for good weight and braking force ratio.
