My first build up is a leader 725 seafoam green as well. I was wondering which you think handles better in chicago streets the heritage or 725 im on the fence on changing it

Smoother ride goes to the heritage, swifter agile ride goes to the 725. Either will do I chicago, its the potholes cabs that I worry about. Lol

This color looks so much better than the black(and I'm ok even though I'm a Bianchi nut).I'm trying to score a 725 this color.

Thanks Sloman!
& I agree it does look better than the matte black imo.
it allows a large range or options to play with, especially if you're as finikie as I am... as you remember, when I first built it up with the lime and purple(cyoteku...) you told me to take it out back and shoot that dog dead lol... guess what, I did.. and I'm glad cause I ended up with this build. I'm asuming you're Sloman from my "fixedgear"

Fizik dual micro bartape. Check eBay. They have blk/red blk/blue blk/grey and blk/white. I think they may have a blk/green(Celeste) too.

I like your build a lot, and i don't really see a need for a change of colors on your parts. It looks pretty clean actually IMO.
