Size?

What size frame is that? Could you take a ground-to-top-of-handlebar measurement for me? The 585 looks sweet, but I am worried about getting the bars high enough...damn this aging thing!

LOOK lists the head tube length for each size. Add 15mm to that figure for the total stack height. My 51cm LOOK with a 120mm head tube, 15mm of headset and 10mm of spacer puts the bar top 87cm from the floor with an 84 degree stem. Since 95% of head tube length is vertical height, it's easy to interpolate any other size from this one set of data.

it's 55cm or L size. the measurement you are asking is 925 mm. At first a had handlebars 2 cm higher, then after few weeks I find this to be a most comfortable position for me. Still I have some flexibility and 32 years, so I quess I can afford such a setup ;)

Saweeet!

Hey dude! Awesome! I need you help...I just cracked an old Kestrel frame and looking to replace it ASAP before the season really get's going. I'm looking at the Look 585s and Ridley Damocles. Any thoughts, comments (good & bad) about the Look would be much appreciated. Great looking bike!

Well, I really can't tell anything about Ridley carbon so i can't compare it to 585. I belive that Ridley makes good frames, they certainly "look" very nice :). Regarding 585 it is definitely top carbon frame around, very comfort and stiff, exelent for climbing, fast on descent, looks awsome :)
