This is my Look 785 Huez RS - don't worry, the top Tube isn't clamped down - my workstand just sucks :wink:

Equipped with new DT Swiss PR1400 Dicut Wheels, Vittoria Corsa 25mm Clinchers with Latex Tubes, Ultegra R8000 Groupset, Absolute Black round chainrings 50 - 34.

Still have to source a new Seatpost and Carbon Handlebars. But this has to wait till I got a bike fit and recovered from surgery at my arm.

The pic is from last year but the setup is mostly unchanged. Image

Unusable. I've run Shimergo for 15 years (10sp ergos, 8sp cassette) and had high hopes that one of these would do the trick:

I see (subsequent to having bought the thing!) that the only review of the grey-one echoes my experience.

I can't believe these clowns are marketing a disc brake!

Reluctantly, just ended-up fitting Ultegra 8100... as i) having had a brown-trousers moment when a Shimano STI stuck with the lever in ii) mech 8000/9100 shifters were insane money vs quite a good deal on the 8100.

I almost never see a Look in any colorway but black with red, yellow, and blue accents and, if there weren't a photo, I wouldn't have believed that green and orange one existed.

Someone knows what is the effective tyre clearance in mm of the Look 785 Huez RS Disc frames (size M)?
Thank you very much.

On a tyre measuring 30.5, a 2.5mm hex is a go and 3mm no-go at the chainstays. That's a medium frame and that's the only dimension it's constrained.
