Just ordered my Colnago C59 150th Anniversary Edition, want some opinions of bar tape.

Blue or White tape ?

I have seen the frame in person and the blue has a glitter/metal flake to it. I do not think you will find a perfect color match. Unless you can find the blue fizik saddle with matching tape I would go with white.

Same color as the saddle. White or black.

The only thing I would change in that picture above by fa63 is the white cages. I am yet to see a pair of cages in any color other than black that looks good to me. Even the white brakes (not a fan of colored brakes) looks good on this one. :thumbup: :thumbup:
