Great build... I need to get my hands on a Look...
How do you like the cranks & stem?

One thing that annoys me with the stem is while the stem is adjustable, it basically only goes up. That position I have it on is the lowest it goes. I dunno if there is technical reason why they can't go more negative but that upwards adjustability is IMO useless for most of their target audience.

I'm interested to see what you come up with regarding the freewheel. Mine drags like crazy since I made the same swap - my LBS said "that's Mavic"

OK it seems that it's really up to the oil you put in there. I tried few lubes which worked for a very short while and after that started rubbing. Before I did two day 200km trip with my friend I took it apart once more and cleaned everything and then I putted Shimano Wet Lube in there. It seems to work now after two days of riding. Maybe I will have to order some of Pedro's Road Rage to make it really work properly. If someone can't tell me what would be the equivalent of that which I could by locally? Must be some basic oil you could get what that Pedro's stuff is?

I took mine apart, cleaned out all grease, and replaced with some synthetic motor oil. Much, much less drag.

Looks really cool this bike, but just with the Mavic wheels!

And make sure you put some oil on the rubber seal and the white bushing, not just pawl and teeth area.
