Thinking of changing my bar tape from white to black - anyone got any photos of white frames with black tape?

    Black Bar tape would work on that bike i reacon. But persoanly id stick with white even though i does get dirty. Just change it every 12 months, its only £7 or somthing for new bar tape init?

    By the way what do you think of those wheels? Especialy the front.

    See my post here regarding these wheels.

    Match the bar tape to the saddle, irrespective of the frame colour.

    Black bar tape and black saddle. I also like a black fork with my white frames (see my link).

    Nice bike BTW

    if we're advising then that Canyon and that Planet X are pretty much how a white bike should look, both really nice bikes indeed.
  • OK, let's compromise:

    Did you try out a shorter stem, so you can set your seat back a bit? :)

    yea had a proper fit today, fitted a 100mm stem and was therefore able to move everything back slightly :)
