After a spectacular crash during a training ride on my Look 595 which cracked the headtube nearly in two, I have begun building up a new bike.

I was able to pick up a Ridley Helium in the Belgium Blue retro paint scheme from Slane Cycles in Ireland for a great price. Sorry for the terrible basement lighting/cell phone pic. More to come.

Thus far:
Ridley Helium Frame
2015 Campagnolo Record levers, FD, RD, brakes
Praxis Works PF30 BB adapter
Campy Neutron Ultra wheels
Fizik Anteres Carbon saddle
Generic carbon seatpost
3T Rotundo bars
Stem pictured will not be stem used
I'm in need of a Campy Record 4-arm crank if anyone has one...

I look forward to hear how you compare the Look with the Helium.

Thanks! It rides great. The ride is less harsh than the Look that it replaced (I think due to the smaller seat stays).
