Absolute class on wheels. If you ride a Look then it sends out a message that you know what you're talking about.

Thats a very classy bike, the colour scheme and finishing kit colour are spot on.
Only negative point, im sure you know, is the silver derailluer, should be grey to match the chainset. That would finish it off nicely.

Looks are class/thread.
the deeper the section the deeper the pleasure.

The answer is to smoke a pipe and just nod in an enigmatic way when questioned. Alternatively just trade it in for a Pinarello and people will think you are a bandwagon cycling fanboy who believes all LBS's are Halfords :wink:

EDIT: whatever you do don't trade it in for a Time. You'll be back to square one!

Lovely - big fan of Look and that is a fine example. Definitely on the shortlist for my next bike.
