    Fizik Red Metallic

    If anyone has this tape, would you mind posting a photo or two? It always looks sort of brownish in web-store photos, and no one has it in town. I'm trying to find something to match the crazy red in my new ride.

    Nobody? Anyone want to post pics/brand of their red tape if you've got something else?

    that old Benotto plastic tape back in the day had the reddest red I've ever seen on tape.

    maybe some of the modern pleather stuff? or Specialized has some also I think.

    I looked at some specialized & no dice... The color is a tough one, because it looks nearly maroon in low light and very bright bass-boat red in the sun. I think the trick is to find something with more of a blue base than an orange base.

    And yes. I am that picky.

    Where can you get Fizik Red Metallic? The only "metallic" I've seen is Blue Metallic. I use Bright Red on my bike.

    Fizik does not make a metallic red tape. Only brick and bright red. The bright red matches the split black/bright red Arione saddle.

    Wow- that's pretty bright for leather. I wonder if the dye bleeds/rubs off when it gets damp.

    Handlebra is the real deal. I've never heard a bad thing about it.
