Here’s my ride. I’ve been around awhile so I figured I’d throw some pic’s of my Look in race form. Forgive the pictures. They were taken with my new cell (Sony Ericsson W810i). I haven’t weighed it so I’m not sure on that.

Look 565
Full Shimano DA
Kestrel EMS/PRO SL
Thomson X2 Stem
Thomson Masterpiece seatpost
Selle Italia SLR XP
Crank Bro Quattro Pedals (will be changed to Look Keo Carbons for race season)
Blackburn Delphi 5.0 Computer
Custom wheelset By Troy Watson aka Bikemessenger
Zipp 303 rim, CX-Ray Spokes, Tune 75/190 hubs and Skewers
20/24 Front/Rear
Vittoria Open Corsa Evo CX 700X20

I’m still testing the wheels but I took them out for a 3hr ride thrusday. They are very stiff. They are a little lighter then my old wheelset but roll a lot easier. I took them up hills and in sprints and so far they are awesome. I know they are clinchers but hey I still don’t feel comfortable with tubies. I’m sure next year I’ll spring for some tubulars.

i've been thinking about a different seatpost. for sure straight and not setback but unsure on which to buy at the moment. But first off is the Keo Carbons. After that the seatpost is next :D

Frame weight? Is that a 53cm.

My 55cm weighed 1210 without collar,headset, bolts. I sent it back for the smaller size.

Did you already made a ride on it? Do you like the Kestrel handlebar? Is is stiff enough?

yep. the frame i've ridden for a few months already. the wheels are the only new things on the bike. I've had the Kestrel bars for about 18 months. so far they are plenty stiff. i'd recommend them....
