    Black saddle okay - not white tape. Match the tape to the tyres.
    Carlsberg don't make cycle clothing, but if they did it would probably still not be as good as Assos

    does that mean you have 1 Trek and then 1 1/2 Trek ?
    that would give 2 1/2 Treks in all
  • I thought it was tape to saddle.

  • Pfft. White is so overrated.

    Green tyres, green tape, green shoes, and a black saddle.

    And a green messenger bag, just for a laugh.

    all down to personal taste.

    Used to have black saddle, white tape, but then the front of the bike was mostly white and the back mostly black so it worked. Also My ar*e was so fat that it blocked anyones view of the saddle anyway.
