Seems to be a new Look bike out. Called the 785, haven't found much else about it.

Nice. I was never a fan of ISP or Look stems. Only thing I not so keen on now is the crank.

Oh crap I wouldn't want to crash on that they're saying 1010g only for frame AND fork. The standard Huez version at 1440g seems better. I'd still prefer them to go with the lugged style from their earlier models but pleased to see them adopt a more normal looking frame style.

Isn't that similar to the Scott Addict SL? Or Cervelo RCa?

I really like it.

They listened to our thread!

Lugged would be cool but it seems unsustainable to build as light and stiff as modern production bikes unless you are doing the handbuilt thing with a lot of attention to detail.

well it light and probably rides well but it looks kind of boring like many bikes.

There are many bikes that stand out this is not one of them which is a shame because look have made so many over the years.

This frame kind of reminds me of a kickback to the old 585 and thus could be the reason why they called it the 785. As much as I kind of side with the "meh" approach granted the somewhat "crazy" offerings the last few years, I'd say this is a definitive buy for those who are more "traditional".

Personally, I think this frame would have the most visual appeal with super low profile rims.

Step in the right direction Look well done.

Now take it all the way & make it come alive again like the days of old.
There are plenty of wooden riding Monobloc carbon design one mold frames out there regardless of weight

Give us something lively like you use to...something with character/feel... there are far too few of these types :thumbup:

Very nice frame.
I was lurking at a Canyon CF SLX but this looks nice too.

I think that somebody in Look assembly line in painting section messed it up picking up the frame from the neighbouring production line (Cervelo....) :)
