Changed the bar tape and seat for white. Removed the SWAT box that looks like a tramps hat. Much better

    One of the nicest Roubaixs i've yet to see. Although I would ditch the pump and it's arguable whether the SWAT box thing looks any worse than that massive saddle bag.

    Probably not the best taken photo I've seen on here, but that's a big improvement on the old Roubaix frame in my opinion.

    Very smart congrats!

    Agree with Gary H's comment...whilst I like the frame, I don't think the white bar tape does the overall look any favours.

    Skillz.... for making it into an fugly bike.... read up on OCP and try again, it will make a difference.

    Would a descent bike shop allow it ti be ridden away like that?

    I'm with everyone else saying that saddlebag has to go. The castelli ones are nice and small and take everything you need (tube, patches, multitool, levers).

    There's nicer pumps available too but that's less of an issue if that one just gets mounted straighter.

    Is that white tape actually a light? It is glowing. Black would be nicer or black and red Supacaz Galaxy.

    Bar tape is honking.

    Black FTW...
