Wow, looks great. Maybe standard Red rather than yellow Red would be better, and black saddle and tape. Personally I like the SE Lightweights.

Really unusual build, and all the better for it. Something you don't see every day.

The brown doesn't look as out of place as I had envisioned, but I agree black saddle and bar tape would look better. And if you get an itch to change something later, I would get rid of the yellow accents on the SRAM Red bits.

Nonetheless, I think overall it still looks good :thumbup:

I just remembered that I had posted a XXTi on my blog before, with a brown saddle (well, more of a maroon maybe) and brown bar tape as well. I just dug it up and looks like this without the yellow:

Very, very nice! I also insist on black saddle/tape.

Really nice, only missing is a straight fork, should fit that lovely frame set better. But can't get everything ;)

I think you're all wrong :D that brown saddle and bar tape is a Passoni signature and therefore a must. Sram red back yellow looks great. It looks truly superb, a really special build. Still think I would prefer non-LE lightweights though...

guys,

The brown saddle are special edition from passoni, you cant get it anywhere at bike store. and i think the bar tape should match more to mastard colour than brown. but its ok we can change it next time.

I have order clavicula crank and fibula brakes for the upgrade. so stay tune.

I think a stright fork look more on racing. that almost 90% of the manufacture use this design. the curve design are more on confort. like many of the house brand THM, AX, Strock use this design.
