Look 675

Postby K9KEF » Sun Oct 20, 2013 19:44 pm

Evening all,

I've been looking for a new bike now for a few weeks and yesterday I had a ride on
Look 675 and it was very nice. Any one on here have one ? also a new model is becoming
available, a light version with a 1.5K carbon ? would it be worth the wait for that.

I'd really like to here from over owners.

The Light is available now, actually, looks very nice too. Don't think you'll find many owners on here, but i could be wrong.

The brother-in-law of one of our club members came on our run out yesterday and he was on one.

I didn't get much time to speak to him but he told me it was the best bike he'd ever had !!!
It was white, red & black with Ultegra 10 speed and had Ksyrium Elites on it and he's had it
around 10 months, so not sure which one it was.

Hope this helps a little......

Been looking at these also the new models now have the new di2 with internal battery. Not had chance to test ride one as would require a fair drive to nearest dealer. Would love to read a real world review tho if anyone got one.

They are beautiful bikes and id love to own one, want to try and get a frameset.
He red and white one that is ten months old is the 2013 model, the newer ones have different graphics but still look stunning. Hopefully this time next year!

After seeing a Look 675 out on the road last week and with me being in the market for
a new bike, I went to have a look at one.

I've been looking for a titanium bike but have been unable to make my mind up on
which one, but once I set my eyes on the 675 in the showroom, had a test ride and
managed to get a very good discount I simply could not leave without it....

So I'm now the proud owner/rider of a Look 675...I'll post some pictures when it stops
raining as I'm not getting her wet :D

I looked a both the white, red & black 2013 model, the 3k carbon with aluminium liners in the
headset & BB along with Ultegra 10 speed. I also looked at the 2014 model, this was a grey ish
colour with the new 1.5k carbon and no aluminium liners, all compressed carbon. This saves around
200g ?? and comes with Ultegra 11 speed.

I looked long and hard at both bikes and the only thing I don't like on both is the Ultegra chain set,
I think it's quite ugly.

In the end I went for the 2013 model as I liked the colour better, it was much cheaper and I'm not that
bothered by 11 speed and I liked the idea of the liners to and some strength to the bike in that area.

I've got a mate selling a new carbon FSA chain set that I'm going to buy from him to replace the
Ultegra one. I managed to get the bike for £2800 + £175 for the FSA. The 2014 model with in the
same spec was £3800.00

Let's hope I picked the right one !!!!

Good price where did you buy from? Yes when you get chance let us know how it rides particularly interested on long rides and over typical British crap roads!

Sounds like it could be the heavier model, the original 675, I'm wondering if it was from Epic ...

It's the 2013 model and it came from Royles.

I'll get some pictures posted and let you all
know on the ride. I've just had a 15 mile ride
this lunch time over some sh*t roads and WOW....

more to follow.

Its Just what they call the black version. I saw one recently in the flesh kitted with full DA, very nice. The new light version looks the nuts too.

The colourways on the 675 are really limited imo, with the 695 you get so much more choice. Have to say, I was never keen on the 'black label' version above. But that's probably just me ...

I have ordered the Look 675 Light from Epic, Seems that the white, red and black version hasn't even come into the country yet (UK), have had it on order since the end of September, Can not wait though. Everyone I have spoken to about the 675 on the Look Facebook pages says it is amazing. Shimano DA 9000 groupset apart from the cassette, which will be Ultegra as the report on the DA one is that it is noisy under load, with Shimano DA 9000 c35 wheels finishing off the running gear

the grey one is nicer imo, congrats on your choice. you didn't ride one at Epic? Not even the older, heavier version?

You should have a word with Rokt, he bought one.

Well I've been out this morning and purchased my new bike, a Look 675 Black White Red
frameset with a Look carbon seat post. I'm now going to spend a few hours and a few quid
on the rest of the bits I need, 3T ErgoNova Pro bars, 3T Accelero 40 Team Stealth wheelset
& Sram Red. The only thing I'm not sure on is the saddle, but I'm sure I'll find something.

I have the frameset and hope the rest should be delivered by the end of the week so I can get
it all built up over the Christmas holiday. I'll post photos when she's built, happy days......
