that's pretty sweet. It's been a few years since I owned a Look, it was a KG381i, jalabert edition.. old school by todays standard but it was a classy ride, and they've stayed classy clearly :-)

That build sir, is one of the cleanest, most elegant ones on this forum.

Congratulations.

And, by the way, the photography ain't half bad either!

Could you post the full build list? Thanks.

That should buff right out... At least it appears you came out better than the bike.

Jap thank god.
Only 3 broken ribs, some bruises, painful knee. Really luck considering and maybe skilful last second reaction that didn't hit the car head on...

Hey Thomas,

Been over a year but hoping you are riding strong and in good health.

I took have a LOOK 566. Would love to discuss some ways to lighten mine up a bit.

- Did you swap out the stock seatpost collar?

- What skewers are those? I have some Dura Ace skewers on some Mavic Ksyrium SL wheels. Very nice skewers but not the lightest.

Don't have the funds for the one-piece stem/bars you have but would like to swap out a few things to lighten mine up, if possible.
