give me your opinions on tape/saddle color etc....

Frame:


Parts I have so far:

Primary race wheels: Tubie Sun Ceramic gray rims with older Rolf hubs
Post: Black Thomson
Crank: 6800 Ultegra with black BG guard/ 39 ring
Brakes: White Froggleggs
Levers: Cane Creek SR5?
Bar: FSA alum compact (love the carbon one on my road ride)
Tires: not sure yet? Grifos probably

Any suggestions for other stuff/ stuff that is missing or small details...

Thanks

Another vote for white bar tape and saddle which will also match your brakes.
If you go with either green or blue it will not look as sharp because you will have a very hard time matching that exact colour.

Thanks for the feedback guys... for now I have

Thomson black stem/post, white tape, FSA pro wing compact bar in black, white jagwire brake housing, Black FSA saddle, Pewter Cane creek SCR-5 levers, Gold woodman headset.... Ordered Grifos..... and may change to a white saddle, and potentially gold bar tape in the future, depends on if I like it....

Progress

Mainly waiting on my gold Woodman headset and then I can finish running cables/taping the bars with white Deda tape. I am happy with the look so far....
