Boras look better. Bring a bit of colour and contrast to the matt carbon weave of the frame. And you've got campy on there so all ok on that front too

In my opinion, on that bike... bright label Boras. I have the same situation with my matte C59. I run it with both dark label Boras and tan sidewalks and bright labels with black walls. The bright labels just finish the bike off perfectly. Yet on a more colorful bike they can just clash with everything.

Yeah, have to agree that the Bora's do look better on that Look. Classy bike with the Campa and Bora's!

IMO Mavic look better. Boras are too loud and don't let the LOOK logo (which is minimal) stand out.

Surely we can some people to post some 795 Blades and and some 785 Huez here. I would think a LOOK TT bike would also be fair game ;)

Really eager to hear some ride reports on the new frames.

I gave my trusty 595 ultra a facelift 2 years ago. Now after stumbling on this thread I decided to give you a look:

I had this on loan for a week to test the Rotor UNO groupset:

Good bike. Wish I was able to fit on it better without that massive spacer stack, but c’est la vie...

Makes me want to try a 765, but they’re nowhere near as pretty.

What did you think? Does function follow form? :wink:

Ha! Actually I don't dislike the look of it.

Functionally it has potential, but the shift is too vague to be considered 'good'. If it weren't for that, I'd be interested in it more seriously for my own bike.

My local bike shop took in a 785huez (non rs) came built with e-tap, and zip 303's and does look very nice indeed. I'd love to take a spin on it as a Look 785 is an option for my next bike. How did you like the Rotor chainring?

Decided to rebuild my KG381i. It's my favorite bike of all time. I've had newer bikes, stiffer, more aero, but this one always put a smile on my face. It's been to the Pyrenees and has been ridden pretty much all places I have lived, but it hasn't been built for almost 10 years now. I'm looking to get a new bike when I can afford it (need to get a new bike I enjoy as much as I did this one), but I thought in the meantime I'd rebuild this and ride it during the early part of the season. If I ride it longer than that, I may put some 52-36 Fibre-Lyte chain rings on it (cannot source original Campy 52-36 anymore) and maybe some Boras. I'll post another picture if I do.

Another perfect build!
Only the shifters are rotated too far upwards.

Has anyone had a chance to ride the new 795 Blade RS?
