    Brooks tape would be the obvious choice. I found it rather uncomfortable, but it might work for you. Other than that, I always nominate classy white. Celestish/green might look nice as well.

    Black is boring. But like the little dress, it goes with everything.

    I see somebody knows their bottle cages, very sweet.

    Remember the one important rule of bar tape; do not try and match your frame color. Anything green is out, no matter how close it is.

    I would go white, obviously. Or natural tan.

    I love the look of white new, but over time it gets a little ratty. Might clash with the cream accents, too. I kind of want to get the crazy Cinelli tape with white, purple and pink.

    I'd like to do that someday, but not anytime soon. I just wanted an Atlantis. It will probably see some use for overnighters and camping trips and maybe longer brevets (if I can manage to get myself in gear for 2010).

    SON 28. Actually, I am thinking of ditching the Supernova--I think I'm blinding oncoming (esp. bike) traffic. I need to mount the light lower, too.

    That's too funny--I just got back from a ride during which I picked up some orange cork tape.

    For tape I'd either go with a fairly dark brown or black. Black is always safe, it's always available, looks good with everything, never looks dirty.
    Don't believe everything you think.

    No Supernova taillight, it looks like? I haven`t heard anything about how they work, but I love their compactness- would be great under the saddle if not using a saddle bag.

    Nice looking bike. I sure wouldn`t mind having one.

    EDIT: Hey, why don`t you go for the "mean" look and wrap your bars with barbed wire in hemp twine fasion! Or maybe that wrap would be better suited to a Fargo.

    Natural tan cork tape would look nice with the existing tires. I always like the Atlantis but geometry was off for me. It should make a great touring bike.

    There was a Riv Reader where bars were wrapped in jute--maybe just because.

    And it has been one or two places in this big wide world:
