Just about everybody who rides a bicycle wants to have a good looking bike. They say beauty is in the eye of the beholder, so there are really an endless amounts of different styles and techniques you can use to create a functional and aesthetic bicycle. One of the simplest and most effective ways to create a beautiful and clean polished look on a bicycle is to color coordinate your bicycle saddle with your handlebar grip tape.
If you want to take your style up a notch, you could go with a leather Brooks saddle that matches with a color coordinated leather bar tape. While it isn't particularly inexpensive to buy a Brooks saddle along with matching bar tape, these premium products will definitely make your bicycle look good while simultaneously adding a tremendous amount of comfort to your bicycle rides. Matt from TailHappyTV recently created a YouTube video showcasing his Brooks B17 saddle along with his matching bicycle handlebar tape. In the Brooks saddle review, Matt explains the benefits of owning the B17 Brooks saddle and what you can expect in your first year of riding it.
In order to create an aesthetic bicycle you'll definitely want to pick one color and stick with it. For example, Matt went with the honey color bar tape and the matching honey Brooks saddle, but there are plenty of other options available. There is a dark brown leather, while there are also more vibrant colors such as lime green. The particular option you choose is really up to you. Of course, there are plenty of other components you can choose while building a good looking bicycle to complement your Brooks saddle with matching bar tape.
