    I put some black bar tape on Freyja, which I'll need to redo as it was carp bar tape, took the chance to stick the red brake hoods on too. I took off the black and red bar tape.

    Excuse that bad quality photos, they were taken on my crappy phone. Everything's come out pink :ohmy: It's all red really. The brake hoods are a bit too new red really so doesn't quite match :biggrin: Maybe I just need to give them a chance to get dirty lol.

    And yes the brake levers are in the wrong place but I realised after I'd done the tape lol.

    As there's quite a bit of 80's retro stylee on the streets you might just get away with it...

    Steve a couple of red spacers would be great!

    I'm trying to upgrade the chainset to something better and when I do, I'll get some red chainring bolts :ohmy:

    Hoods look good. I'd take one off, take it to LBS and get some tape that matches.

    I like the shoes too. What make are they?

    They do. I've heard bad things about their chocolate pedals, though. Very light, but not very long-lasting!
