I built up this frameset a few weeks ago after picking it up for a good price along with a new Campag groupset. My son will be the primary user but I will get to use it from time to time when I fancy a change from my normal ride. This does mean our Look 595 / Dura Ace bike will probably need to be moved on but there you go.
I enjoy taking inspiration from others builds so here you go;
Look 586 SL med (2011)
Campag Super Record groupset
Deda Zero 100 bar / 3T Team stem
Fizik Antares saddle
Mavic Kysrium SLR wheelset
15.1 lbs as pictured below
Although the Lightweights will not be used on this bike, I couldn't resist
13.9 lbs as below

makes me really want to go out and get the 586.....again
i had the 586 last year...then changed it to 695 a few weeks ago.
the 586 just feels more nimble when i climb. (i lost quite a bit of weight and now the 695 feels a little too strong for me. i am 60kg now)
Enjoy the 586 SL.....
and just some trivia news - Most of the Cofidis team opted for the 586 SL for Paris-Roubaix....

586sl + LW's = win. proportions are so right with moderately deep rims. I would change my one to Campy in a heartbeat except:
1) my LW's are 1st gen with Dura-ace hubs
2) I can't justify the Campy SRM.

How is the 586 SL compared to the 595?

I actually prefer the Mavic wheelset for this build. Looks great. I'd switch to a white stem, maybe the Deda Zero 100.

Very nicely done. One of the nicer Looks on the forum.
Suggestions - agree with greenduck on white stem. White spacers and hoods would also work well on this.
Stiff, Light, Aero - Pick Three!!

Why would you not run the LW's in it?
That said, looks fantastic with the Mavic's in. Great build, excellent weights. Well done.
