T-Cube accessory upgrade.

I added a bit of color to the T-Cube. Since I don't have the Barloworld frame I decided to have some hits of red on the bike.


The tape is from Token Products as well as the saddle. The saddle weighs in at 160 grams according to my scale. Not too bad for a padded saddle. The stock San Marco Aspide was painful indeed. The Shimano Dura Ace and SRAM Force equipped T-Cube comes stock with the Fizik Arione which has been a favorite of mine over the years. This saddle is nice and comes in a variety of colors, red, white, black, silver, and blue. In my experience, the tape is really similar to the Deda carbon. I did a Euro half wrap just to pimp the aero tops of the Deda Electa handlebar.


I have one ride on the saddle so far and it's very comfortable. The bar tape is quality and the installation was straight forward. The tape stretched well when wrapping, has a nice hand to it and isn't too soft. The length of the two sections of tape is generous too. Not like Cinelli where you wrap a 44cm bar and run out halfway across the top of the bar. Doh!
