Stunning. The whole package has so much style. Love the matching stem/bar combo. Would like to see some better photos to get a better idea of what that yellow looks like.

Yes to yellow/black/silver
No to brown - it doesn't go with the other colours at all.

Guys,

The brown saddle in my photo are actually came with the Passoni kit package, its Selle Italia made for passoni, i actually never seen this colour in our lbs, and i really like that colour.

I have order a Brooks brown tape to match the saddle :mrgreen:

+1. The brown saddle just looks out of place.

Please debadge the SRAM red. The yellow doesn't match and makes it look cheap. Brown tape and saddle will work with the creamy yellow on the frame, only if the bright primary yellow is removed.

I choose the sram yellow because to match the frame colour. thats the only reason.

I am not sure why passoni came with a brown saddle instead of a yellow/black saddle :noidea:

Looking good!
I'd try the Brown...could look surprisingly good and a bit different/special.
