Thoughts on the tape and color details? Yellow mark on the 00 saddle?
A saddle may be justified as personal preference, but that bar tape is a step too far for me.

Maybe I’m not fluent enough in English proverbs, but in essence - yes. Looks like a lost cause trying to match the bar tape to the Turbo Cottons or vice versa. Doesn’t match and therefore doesn’t look very stylish. I’d stick with black tape. Or camouflage black/grey/white, even that would suit the build much better than ”brownish”.

Yep, sorry to say that the bar tape is pretty offensive. Heightened by the fact that the rest of the build is so well judged I might add!

The tape could be called... "Cat Poop" Brown.

Sorry doesn’t work for me either. Such a simple yet modern build, the brown tape is a step too far (gravel bike?).

This might work with your tan tires.

The stars on the supercaz tape is a bit frilly for me... Saved 10g with some basic black non-adhesive foam. 6940g

And if that damn cat knocks down the bike...

Lovely bike, but I don't like the tape :/ Maybe if you match it with a Brooks saddle? (for the sake of clarity, I was referring to the brown one)

Black Kitty is just admiring the all black bike.

It's now looking so good, we can forget this little dalliance happened at all. :mrgreen:

Bike looks great!

Our cat knocked down my steel bike on top of my titanium one (they were side by side in RAKK stands).. No damage to either one, but it was an interesting experience to walk into the sunroom and see the carnage :-)
