None, leave it bare.
the decals only take up part of the handlebars. I could sand the bars in their entirety but I wanted to remove some decals and leave others

I vote for a repaint! Not so keen on too much nude carbon..
I've considered repainting my TCR as well... there's some beautiful paint jobs out there.. the difficult bit would be choosing a colour/design/paint!

Thanks. I bought this frame with a destroyed bottom bracket cup. Milled a new cup and epoxied it in. I bought the frame for 75 euro! Because the process we together went through I love this frame to bits. Rides excellent too!

The frame was clear coated so not much paint was on there so a colour painted frame would save more weight by stripping.

the Sunweb scheme is the only acceptable stock one.. I'd repaint if I had the option
