class, makes me want a wheat kilo.

i was

i was wondering what size is your miche bb?

WOW!

Nice build. Now I'm thinking about replacing my Brooks tape with that elk hide. Sick!

Thanks man. You've got some

Thanks man. You've got some sweet 3Renshos' there. Trade? ;)

Seriously though, if you use the elk hide, wrap some cloth tape underneath first. I didn't, and the hide shifted a lot on me. live & learn.

i love

the colorway, it's sexy.

how'd you get the elite? I

how'd you get the elite? I thought they only came in 27.2 and the kilo seat tube fits 26.8, at least mine does..?

thomson

makes their posts in many sizes, all of which are readily available.

50-60?

Brooks tape is waaay more than like 50 bucks. i thought that shit was like 85-90 bucks. but maybe bikes shops around me are ripping kids off. anyway, that would like pretty sick on the wheat frame.

Matching Brooks tape would look so nice with this.

Yeah, I'm actually tossing that in the air right now. It would look sick. Don't know if I can bring myself to spring 55-60 bones on bar tape though.

Option:

Velo-Orange has leather bar treatments for much less and in shades close to brooks. if theres slight tone difference, i've read that brooks proofide will darken leather.

I actually went that very route : ) It's not a spot on match, but Proofride did indeed make it very similar. I bet that after a couple more months breaking them in, they'll look virtually identical.

damn

that came out nice. i cant wait to get mine on.
