I'm going to build it up with either chorus or record depending on what kind of deals I can swing. And I already have a set of 38mm carbon clinchers that will go on it.
But I'm having trouble with my choice in stem, bars, and grip tape. All the full builds of this bike have white tape which I'm not going to do for practical reasons. I want to stick with an "Italian" theme, I've looked at deda and they have some white/red parts that I thinking would work in their 35mm line, but I don't really need the stiffness of those and I'm afraid the size will look terrible...
What are your thoughts on kit, colors, brands etc... To finish off this build.
Not looking I to spend a ton of money, and I prefer a compact drop, this isn't my weight weenie bike, so I'm not too concerned about the absolute lightest stuff.
Thanks ahead of time! Double thanks for pictures!

Bars: Deda Zero 100:
Black saddle of your choice, black bar tape, black hoods, black cabling.
The frame has plenty of color with red and white. Not a fan of Deda's 35 line. Keep everything as black as you can otherwise it'll start looking really busy. I'd even consider dumping that red matching seatpost and going all black with that too.
Of course, if your preference is different, then ignore everything I've just said as there's no accounting for taste. It's your bike.
black hoods only. white tape.
I'm pretty close to pulling the trigger on the white italianish version. but pissed reds are gone.

Yeah, I've been looking at building up another red bike, but the Blue was gorgeous, but they were all out when I looked so I went with red.
I've got 3T Ergonova Pro and a Campagnolo Chorus group inbound, I'm going to build it up with a 110mm 3T pro stem I've got lying around and then probably buy another stem to dial the fit in.
Not my most weight weenie bike, this one will be more of my backup/ charity ride bike. but I can't afford 2 of the anorexic money vampires!!!
