I disagree, I think black tape and tires with red cable housing would be the perfect amount of red... oh and one of those new flite saddles or the toupe saddle that's mostly black with a touch of red.
I never thought about red cable housing.
And a new saddle is definitely in order. The Aliente is way too hard, unless riding it will break it in.
I swapped out the tires tonight for Michelin Krylions with a thin grey stripe. It definitely makes it look plainer. IDK. Maybe I'll keep the red tires and lose the red tape. There's just something about the combination of red tires and tape that makes it look cheap instead of cool, IMHO. But I respect your opinion too, Richard. Ya got me thinking. BTW, I was out in Pittsburgh this past weekend moving my younger daughter's stuff to her new apartment. Cyclists everywhere. A ride in/around/about Pittsburgh is on my list of things to do next summer.
