I think red could be even better - match the saddle...

I apologize for not weighing evrything before putting it together but I'm not patient enough.

Here's a build list-

2006 Record Ergolevers
Record Ders.
Record steel casstette- 12-23
Record D Skeleton Brakes
Wipperman Connex 1008 chain
Deda Magic stem- 110
Deda Newton Bars- 44
Selle SMP Evolution saddle
Zipp 300 cranks/BB
AM Classic hubs laced to Velocity Escape Tubular rims via DT Aerospeed spokes (for training)
404's for raceday
Conti Sprinter tires always
Cateye Micro Wireless computer
Zipp Bottle czages
Speedplay Zero stainless pedals


I'd ask what I should change to make it better... but I'm in love with it the way it is.

It is just perfect the way it is. Nice build. The biggest bonus of your LOOK is the customer service since dumping Veltec as a distributor is the best I have ever seen. If you ever need anything, just post at the RBR Look forum and you will get personal attention from one of their customer service guys who watches the Look forum there.

I'm not impressed with Veltec- never have been. I handle the purchasing for the LBS I work at and no matter how big the order, none of the inside reps ever seem that concerned or anxious to help you.

We're getting all of our pedals from LOOK USA now, they're incredibly helpful and quick to respond- I couldn't be more satisfied with anybody's customer service.

Can you please shed some light on the cutting of the seat mast process? Whats involved, and how does the fine tuning of the saddle height work?

I'd love to see what the seat post top think looks out of the bike, the spacers, etc.

Thanks again to everyone for recognizing the effort we're putting out there. It makes it all worthwhile.

The frame comes with a guide that slides down over the seat mast- you tighten it much like a seat collar to secure it- then saw away.

It was much easier than I expected. Anyt excess you cut ca be used in the future as a spacer (like a headset spacer).

The seatpost's lower section operates like a normal compression plug that you would find in a carbon steerer tube- as you tighten the lower section compresses and expands to secure the seat in place.

I can't tell you how pleased I am with this bike.

I'll try to take some pics of the seat assembly later to better explain how it works.

As for now, it's time to take this beauty on it's maiden voyage.

Beautiful bike. I would keep the red saddle and as others have suggested red bar tape would be hot.
