I go with White tape, White saddle on the majority of my bikes and at least white tape on the others. Most bikes already have a ton of black on them between the cockpit, seatpost, wheels, groupo and the logo's. I like to bring the white as an accent color. The white for me is the traditional PRO look that worked for Coppi, Merckx etc, before the Bennotto colored tape of the '80's. I use Fizik and have no problem keeping it clean. Change the tape once in early spring and then in fall. Cheap way to make the bike feel new. My .02
