Strengths:    Weight, comfort, handling.

Weaknesses:    Nothing I can think of. Not as sleek as certain other carbon frames? Maybe. Doesn't matter from a ride perspective.

Bottom Line:   
One of the best all-around bikes I've ridden - maybe THE best. Thought I was forever committed to ti. Other carbon frames seemed not to handle very well, or were too stiff for longer rides on rougher roads. The 585 is a dream. In fairness, I've only taken about ten rides but absolutely no complaints.

Strengths:    Very very precise handling, stiff, yet comfortable.

Weaknesses:    I wish the seatpost diameter was larger than 27.2, but not a big issue.

Bottom Line:   
I can describe the ride as being very PRECISE. I have ridden carbon frames in the past (Ride Blue RC7), and after reading all the reviews, I thought I was going to be biased towards the frame, but I can tell you right now, I am definitely biased. I LOVE the set-up. The bike built up to 15.5 lbs with pedals and Polar CS600 mounts/sensors and the computer and water bottle cages.

I have a Colnago CT2 HP with the same grouppo and it weights 17.5 lbs. I went for comfort with the saddle, but I can probably drop another pound by changing the saddle and going with Nokon cables. I wasn't going for the lightest build, but I am definitely impressed with the handling and compliant ride. I do have to get used to the way it handles around corners. As a climbing bike, it is very responsive especially on short bursts with no wasted energy.

Strengths:    Well balanced, light. Everything seems to be in just the right measure. Stiff but not harsh, very comfortable, good handling and predictable, but not at all twitchy. Everything in good balance with no bad traits..

Weaknesses:    Umm... Its old??

Bottom Line:   
I bought this frame used of Ebay, and it became my daily rider. I've had a ton of frames come and go but this is the one that stays built up and gets ridden. For what I paid for it, and how good it is, I just can't seem to justify switching to a more expensive frame.

Strengths:    HIGH SPEED CORNERING AND ALL AROUND RIDE QUALITY. PAINT AND FINISH IS GREAT.

Weaknesses:    NONE THAT I HAVE ENCOUNTERED.

Bottom Line:   
IN MY 45 YEARS OF RIDING THIS FRAME IS THE BEST. IT CLIMBS WELL, CORNERS ON RAILS,AND LEAVES YOU FEELING GREAT AFTER MANY MILES. I HAVE OWNED EVERYTHING FROM STEEL TO TITANIUM, BUT THIS LOOK CARBON FRAME IS THE BEST BY FAR. WISH I WAS YOUNGER AND STRONGER, BUT I STILL ENJOY MY 5000 MILES PER YEAR IN THE SADDLE.

585 Geometry help

Can anyone point me to a Look 585 Geometry chart? Mr Google is not being too helpful. And as a follow-up question, from looking at photos, the rear geometry looks pretty tight. Will anything bigger than a 23mm tire fit there? Thanks.Read More »
