as promised, here is the paris carbon in progress.
anyone think i should go with yellow conti GP4000 instead?
the bars are a direct transfer from my r33, i am thinking i will go to black tape? but maybe yellow tires will balance it?

interesting suggestion on white tape

i hesitate to wrap that. i wish i had photo shop skills.
i will pull my rolf vectors of fthe carbonissimo, put them on this and snap a pic--that will get me the yellow tire effect.
can't wait for the time to get the chain on and derailleurs adjusted and go for a ride.

a sexy bumble bee in the end

the yellow gp4000's might not match. I think their yellow is a little more orangish.
Yeah, be careful about color match. With the large-ish black spokes I would stay away from yellow tires. Maybe yellow accents on the saddle.

How many miles on the Topolinos? - do you like them?

have another set with a few hundred, like them alot--smooth out the road nicely.
the spokes are dirty yellow, so maybe they would clash with yellow tires
i'll try to swap out front wheels just to see.
