Praxis Works front chainrings

ENVE 6.7 with White Industries T11 hubs

Bontrager saddle - The saddle in the pjcture is a Fizik. Didn't feel right so I changed it.

Nice black and white theme there. As a dream bike you certainly hit the mark. Look is one bike that keeps tempting me.
With a few tweaks you should be able to get it below 6.8kg.
Now go out and ride it and give us a ride report.

Haha maybe I'm OCD but I would definitely shift the chain into the big chainring and make sure valve stems are at 6 o clock. Other than that. Great looking bike. Enjoy!

You don't list what cables and bartape you are using, but Lizardskins DSP tape, Aican or Alligator iLink cable housing, carbon railed saddle, light pedals, light skewers and Conti Supersonic tubes are all easy ways to drop a few grams

Lizardskin bartape. LOOK keo pedals, OEM cables and housings. Was thinking of going Ti skewers.

Lovely bike, but the angle of which you took the picture does funny things with the perspective, giving the impression that the picture at the wall is slanted.

I'm not OCD, but I do find it distracting

Great bike !!!
And great looking color. If LOOK made this color few years ago, I would build something similar. But now it is time to build new Wilier :-)
And more good quality pictures please. I like this bike a lot.

That is a mean looking bike! Maybe it is the angle, but the stem rise and the handlebar classic curve draws an odd looking interface to me.....I think it is more aesthetically pleasing for the curve of the bar to continue the trajectory of the stem before curving down to the drops, but I recognize that as a nitpicky statement!!
