Lovely, Great looking bike. I think your bike is "asking" for some nice deep dish carbon to complete the look.

Do not listen to the people that make negative comments about the stem, everyone changes their opinion when they see it in real life.
Can you also decribe the ride and what did you ride before?
Thanks..


Thanks plasticol... completely agree that i need a pair aero wheels. maybe 50mm. i am considering between bora one or bora two. maybe u guys can help me to decide.

well... although i've received quite a number of negative comments about the c-stem. i still love it! the functionality and flexibility that i could have some aggresive riding positions and also touring comfort all in one stem simply works for me. and i think the aesthetic look of the stem aint that bad in real life.

plasticol, i had a couple of bikes in the past which ive sold em, scott cr1 team issue and look kg486.

Excellent build man, the only thing that I could find fault in the chainrings. The Look ones on there are flawless (functionally) I'd assume, although Rotor Q-Rings or Stronglight CT2s would look excellent in my personal opinion. But I'd for sure keep them on there and then replace them with one of those when the Looks are worn. For aero wheels, I'd personally go with a set of Zipp 404s (perhaps de-badged). With Campagnolo Bora, they've made the 'Bora One' unappealing by making Bora Ultras.

Bora Two decals wld go better colour-wise. You could get ones and upgrade the decals...

Love the bike btw ... great work :thumbup:

Please ditch the Time pedals though ... can't condone those on a Look bike!

Some tan sidewall/black tyres would be nice.

nice pool too.

the controltech mount looks very, very cool. i ordered one too. was worried about the vibration.

was right. lost my polar cs500 computer on day one. hit a (big) bump and it flew off.

someone's walking around with a mighty big wrist watch now.

sick bike.

Oh my...

It does vibrates a little and occasionally skips my cateye computer to another mode... Other than that, it works well for me. Gives my cockpit a more balanced aesthetic.

Yes. However the polar is not attached directly to bike. It sits in a cradle/mount which is zip tied.

The mount itself holds the unit in place with 2 pins.

Beautiful computer. Weak design. Went with a Garmin 500 and bar fly this time. (Works great with bontrager ant+)
