I am very happy to be back on a Look.
I use to ride a 386i. Still dont know why I sold it ;)
Just got a new Look 585 frame Yesterday morning.
Built it pretty much with what was on my Cervelo R2.5.
Except I had to change to a clamp FD & seatpost changed to a Alien
since Cervelo had that funny 28.6 size. Initial impressions were very good. The overall quality of the frame is excellent. Only a very short ride today due to weather & I found I needed to adjust the headset.
Very happy though with how it felt. Will give it a proper long ride on Saturday.
Weight with clinchers 14.26 lb. Or 6470 grams
Weight with Hyperons 13.88 lb. Or 6300 grams

Pretty bike.

Just one really anal question. Do your tubs have labels both sides? If not, why did you fit them the wrong way round?

Hi
Thanks
I see now you said tubs . Thought you said hubs ;)
Yes they have labels on both sides. The tread on Conti sprinters has no direction as far as I know

You really need LOOK pedals.
I rode Looks for a good 15 years. Most recently the Keo's
But then I tried these M2 Orbs & really like them.
Not to mention they are 99 grams VS 230 grams ;)
