Big Laurent Jalabert fan here!

That bike's absolutely beautiful. But why did they get that old guy to show it off? :p

Awesome Dick Dale music for the soundtrack too!

Check the Look forum for it. We have been debating it since July. Beautiful bike except for the bent top tube that makes it look like a 566. All other aspects of the bike are amazing.

Looks good. I hope the chinese generic carbon version is released soon.
Look bikes are not manufactured in China. They are manufactured in Look's own plant in Tunisia. They are one of the few that still keeps manufacturing in house. They have not outsourced any of their frame production as of this time.

Isn't that "old" guy Laurent Jalabert? Seems like that is what I read in another post, wouldn't want to challenge that old guy.

Hmmm.. I was under the impression that the French/Tunisian frames were their high end (595, 585, 695, etc.) while their lower lines (555, 566, etc.) were manufactured in Asia.

From my understanding the high end 595/585 were still made in France

While the low end in Tunisia 555/566...
