The adjustability works well and they're well designed and executed, but I can't think of anyone buying a bike in the 695 price range that doesnt know what their geometry needs are.
Anyone who is that interested, knows exactly what they want and does not need something that has all-in-one adjustability. That type of fine-tuning would be nice, but it is a solution no-one seems to have been having a problem with (in that price range).
At least that is how it is with me. But not everyone is like me, I guess.
Did I hear they were getting rid of the adjustable stem (I could be wrong)

Me too but i suspect they wont (yet?) as the price points are too similar to their current range and they ll need to recoup the investment.
Having said that and hating the 695 when it was first released, the 695 has grown on me... especially in the Cofidis colours... just loose that ugly huge stem.
i know that the 2012 695 is delivered and has a real di2 integration with battery under the chainstay... making me sad as mine in not well integrated.
I have also been told that it is difficult to get good supply of carbon slowing deliveries on the prod.
A friend just raced the grande marmotte and told me he has seen a lot of them...

I also hated the c-stem. So big you could put a Garmin inside it (hmmm).
My bike dealer (seems pretty well connected) tells me they are doing something with the stem in 2012.
When I got back on the 586 after a week it felt like the road had been coated in velvet.......

It seems that Look is using the Royal Dutch Shell "Design one, build many" approach...
