A good review: http://www.4actionsport.it/la-nuova-loo ... ew-series/

http://www.velonews.com/2017/07/bikes-a ... -rs_442162

I have a 795 light with many problems in zed3, noises and crunches, i think i will change it for the 785.
And i do not want to be wrong again.

Look has made big changes to your warranty, read it on your website.

Do we have some real world weights here by now? The new tarmac should also have been in this weight class...

That’s beautiful iSaint2.

I have to say, this is a really nice bike and it’s definitely on my short list. I’ve always preferred all-around and ‘climbing’ bikes as opposed to aero styles. Probably because I enjoy climbing. Recently moved to the Boston area though and everything is flat around here unfortunately.

I saw the disc version. At eurobike and thought I bought the wrong bike. My rim brake 785 arrived yodsy. Then I thought I have the right bike, no the wrong bike. Oh I don't know I build it up and ride it anyway.

The differences are not that big. Are you quite heavy and ride a lot in the mountains when it's raining? If not, be happy about less weight. ;)

And Tour tested the rim brake frame 858g/fork 336g btw.

Guys, I've got 785 Huez RS Ultegra that is a bit heavy now (±7,4 kg without pedals). What do you think is the best way to reduce it's weight to 6.8 kg?

First of all, I'm going to change wheels to Shimano C24. What are next reasonable steps?

Thanks!

change the wheels to something else please. you can have stiffer, more aero wheels that are just as light.

I want aluminium, clincher, reliable, stiff, reasonable priced and light wheels, so c24 looks like a good option.

You could change stem, handlebar, seatpost, saddle, crankset, pedals, brakes and wheels.
Or just buy Etap.
Question is, if it's worth it for you?
It's just like buying a bike a bit up the ladder.
Why not just ride it as is and wait a year and see how you feel then?
