Strengths:    This is a pretty stiff frame and it's strong too. It responds great.

Weaknesses:    None so far.

Bottom Line:   
I love this bike. It's a 2004 model and I bought the frame and fork on eBay to replace a broken Aegis. It rides great and it carries all my weight with no problems.

Strengths:    Great Bike

Weaknesses:    None

Bottom Line:   
I rode several centuries an a few double centuries on this bike. The KG451 is a beautiful bike. Out of all the bikes I own this is my baby. I have over 5000 miles on it and it still rides strong.

Strengths:    Very smooth ride - you have to force yourself to keep an eye on the road ahead becasue it absorbs incredible amount of road shock.

Weaknesses:    None

Bottom Line:   
Everything said prior about this bike is absolutely true... smooth, forgiving, quick accelerator with ride-all-day comfort if set up properly. SRAM Rival's crisp shifts complement the stiff characteristics of this ride... a keeper.

Strengths:    Carbon weave looks cool. This is a hot looking bike. Ride quality is fantastic, and you know that Look produce lovely bikes.

Weaknesses:    None so far.

Bottom Line:   
Price is in Australian Dollars.

Bought this bike with 105 on it so I could afford it. The ride quality is just beautiful. I compared it against several other Giant's and Trek's and it won hands down.
It feels so solid in corners and is super smooth.

Strengths:    Ride...ride...ride quality. Very smooth. Quality construction

Weaknesses:    None other than I'm not a fan of the new swoopy LOOK logo. I prefer the old LOOK logo

Bottom Line:   
This is my 12th LOOK. I bought this frame to build up as a long distance bike. The 1" headtube is more comfortable than the 1 1/8" on my 381. This frame also has downtube shift bosses. The quality is what you'd expect from LOOK. The paint/finish is extremely durable.

What's a Look KG-451 like

Someone who knows I ride a Look 566 offered me a Look KG-451 but the frame is too big for me but would probably fit a good friend who currently rides a Scott flat bar and is looking to maybe upgrade to a more normal road bike config. However I don't want to steer him in the direction of the KG-45 ... Read More »
