Currently riding a Look 595, which is a great bike. Built up with Campy Record (10-spd), Rotor 3D Quarq with 50/36 Q-rings, 3T Ergonova Team and ARX Team steam, Prologo Scratch saddle and Speedplay pedals. I really like all the components so I won't necessarily look to change them out any time soon. If possible, I'd like to have the option of going Campy EPS in the future, so dual port, or something that is easily converted would be nice...
I do realize that although the Look is very comfortable, it's also a bit on the heavier side... I do ride lots of mountains, so a bike that climbs well (weight and stiffness), decends well (front end stiffness and balance), but I also like to mix it up in the town line sprints (for a smaller guys, I do have a punchy sprint). I do use my road bike a few times a year in the hillier triathlons around here, so that's a factor that I'd like to take in consideration.
Now, here's the question... what bike to look for? Thinking Scott Foil, which should give me plenty of what I'm looking for, but I'm afraid I would lose lots of comfort, which I really like about the 595... Specialized Venge, should give me lots of what I'm looking for, but it's not that light... Tarmac SL4, light, but compared to the Foil and Venge, I would give up aerodynamics...
The last option is simply a Look 695, which I'm certain would give me pretty much everything I'm looking for, but I would lose the ability to use my power meter... Yes, I know you can use an adaptor, but that's really reducing the benefit of the 695... I have a ZedTech crank on my tri bike (Look 596) and it's the stiffest crank I've ever seen!!!
