Strengths:    Bang for buck. Lively ride and road feel. Beautiful workmanship and all day comfort.

Weaknesses:    1 inch head set and 25.0 post limit your options but, the beautiful U.S.E Carbon Alien still comes in 25.0

Bottom Line:   
At 19.8 lbs., it ain't state of the art. I rode some other popular carbon bikes and while they handled OK and damped out vibration, they just felt "creepy". I guess I could have gotten used to them but, people who have ridden my Look love the road feel, even riders who spent $1,500.00 or more for those other steeds. I think it's because it feels more like a high end steel frame. This bike is only 2.85 lbs lighter than my old steel Bianchi yet I average 1.4 mph faster on it, all day. It climbs well (Protons help) and reacts quickly to pedal input. The best two traits of the 361 are seamless neutral handling and all day comfort. If your looking at a carbon fiber frame, there are still a few 361's floating around and can be had for under $650.00 If not, try the 451 or the 461. If you've got the bucks, you can build up a sub-14 pound 585 using off-the-shelf components.

Strengths:    Light, responsive, comfortable. Excellent value for well-crafted carbon bike.

Weaknesses:    White "Look" and "KG361" decals are a bit ugly. Not quite as light as some carbon frames.

Bottom Line:   
Great bike. The more I ride it the more I enjoy it. Smooth and efficient when cruising at speed, responsive and light when I push it up a hill, and poised and stable when I go through a sharp corner.

The comfort of the bike impresses me more and more. I chose this bike because I expected the carbon to be comfortable and because the Look's shallow seat angle helps me get a good fit (the upper part of my leg is long compared to the lower part.) When I first started riding it, I immediately noticed how much less fatigued I was at the end of a long ride; I credit the carbon for this. I didn't really notice the better fit at first, but now that I'm used to it, getting back on my old bike makes me instantly realize how much better the new fit is.

Strengths:    rigid frame but compliant ride, neutral handling. Black matte finish looks good.

Weaknesses:    'designed in France' but built in Taiwan. Not really a weakness! Large Look decals in white.

Bottom Line:   
rides like a steel bike (well) with sharp neutral handling. Rigid frame for me (78kg). I chose this bike for it's frame geometry that allows me to sit back on the bike and stretch out without putting too much weight on my hands.

Typical scratches and marks on would expect from 4 years of use. White paint w ... Read More »

Look KG 361 flex

I was getting re-fit on my Look KG 361 yesterday and was shocked by the amount of frame flex I saw on the trainer. It was like I was riding a piece of pasta. I'm not heavy by any means weighing in at 145. I was wondering if this is a common problem with the 361. Has any one experienced issues wi ... Read More »
