Hello fellow road bikers, I'm buying a new saddle (bought a second hand bike and the saddle is really worn) and bar tape, what color should I go with? (White CAAD 10 2011) Also does anyone have experience with Specialized Romin?

    Black. Anything else looks grubby.

    I've white bikes and I regret getting white cages even.

    My white Fuji came with white tape and saddle, and I added white cages and white SPDs. A bit of rubbing with baby wipes keeps it all white.

    Could go camo tape, no one will see it then, problem solved if you cant see it you cant moan about the colours surely.

    Depends on jungle camo, urban camo or desert camo, I would guess. My personal choice would be Estonian digital pattern, although not much use for desert riding...

    White bar tape looks OK on a darker coloured bike. On a white frame it's going to be too much, and tape, saddle and frame will never be the same shade either.

    So I'd say black saddle and bar tape
