    I would have killed to get that bike for $70(probably not a good idea to kill someone at a police auction ;) ) I paid a lot more for my LOOK 753 Hinault and by the time I finished restoring it....well let's just say I could have made the morgage payment for a couple of months........

    I recently bought an old Look steel frame at an ebay auction in germany. Ill try to take some pics of it soon. Maybe you can help identify it? My guess is its from around the mid 80's.

    Christian, LOOK only made one steel frame in the 80's and that was the LOOK-Hinault Reynolds 753. It was white with red, blue and yellow trim. LOOK also made some steel frames in the mid-90's. They were made out of Columbus. I used to own the KG243. It was yellow and red and was lugged. They made 2 other steel models in the mid-90's also.

    DANG!
    That is one sweet Look-ing ride. Very nice, understated build. Interesting to see the 'Evolusize' compact idea actually in action - I've never seen an XL before and it appears to have a virtually horizontal TT.
    But hey - i bet it could 15.6 lbs. if you didn't run the long-stemmed tubes!

    Good Eye....

    The top tube does indeed have a zero degree slope, as does the 486 XL (up-thread there somewhere).

    When I installed new rubber, the long stem tubes were the closest at hand. Oddly enough, those valves add enough weight to balance the rim seam on the opposite side such that the wheels don't spin when hung freely.

    I'll screw on a couple of valve extenders that will be so close to the hubs that I'll be able to quantitatively measure wheel deflection on the road. ;)

    LOOK 386i

    Bought this bike in February 2004. I first rode it on the 20th of that month. As of today I have put 8,218 miles on it. The most notible ride was the Bike Tour of Colorado in June/July 2004. I climbed Trail Ridge Road (highest paved road in the lower 48) that peaked out at 12,183 feet (3,713 meters). It has truely been an awesome bike.

    Dura Ace Triple, Terry Ti Fly Saddle, Ritchey WCS Stem, Easton EC90 bar, Velomax Orion II wheelset.

    Kg486

    Bought a week ago, so no serious mileage yet (but very impressed with the few hours that I've ridden on it so far). I did post these pics in Complete Bikes, Frames & Forks but thought I may as well post here too so all the Looks are in 1 place...

    Here's my brand new 585:

    - Dura-Ace 10-speed components
    - Fizik Aliante saddle w/ carbon rails
    - Selcof carbon monocoque seatpost
    - ITM Millenium stem (11 cm.)
    - Kestrel EMS Pro/SL bars (42 cm.)
    - Look Keo pedals (steel)
    - Mavic Ksyrium SL wheels - "old" version
    - Arundel bottle cages

    Total weight currently is 15.8 lbs. I have some Rolf Elan Aero's on order, which should bring the weight down to the 15.1-15.2 neighborhood.

    Very nice build

    Very nice piece of equipment you have there. What size frame is that, and if you wouldn't mind what is the crank center to seat dimension and seat nose to handle bar center dimension. I'm hoping to move up to a 585 this spring, but I'm a little worried about sizing. I'm 6'0" and when I check the frame dimensions for a size 57 it seems like I may have to have too much spacer under the stem to have a nice balanced appearance to the build, which yours certainly has!

    My 585 is a size medium, which according to their specs means that seat tube length is equivalent to a 53cm c-c. I don't know what the crank to seat distance is, but the distance from the nose of the saddle to the center of the bars is 55.5cm. In the picture I posted I had a 1cm. spacer under the stem, but since it was taken I added another .5cm. since I also raised my saddle a bit. In terms of spacer comparisons my other bike with more traditional dimensions (no sloping top tube) required me to have 2.5cm. of spacers under the stem, and its seat tube measered 54cm. c-c. It did not have an integrated headset. Perhaps Look's semi-compact geometry allows for a slightly longer head tube for a given size, so you might be okay.

    Ultra-lousy, just-out-of-the-box, crap-the-battery-is-dead photo. Real shots when the build is complete. Waiting on stem and handlebar...

    Look 481sl

    I have the red and black 386i posted earlier. Unfortunately it had to go back to Veltec for them to look at a loose front deraileur hanger. No news yet. Here is my newly built blue and white 2004 481SL.

    Easton ec90 carbon bar
    Ritchey WCS stem
    Velomax Orion II rims
    Michelin Pro Race 2 tires
    Dura Ace 7800 10 speed
    Dura Ace 7800 pedals
    Terry Ti Fly saddle

    Rides great. Can't really explain it but it feels more "airy" than the 386i which is great too.

    Verrrry nice. How do you like the Stella Azzurra crankset? Specifically, how is the shifting? Thinking about getting some - it's between them and the Stronglight Pulsion, but the Stella's are waaay more bling. On the other hand, the Pulsion's are only 440 grams including rings.

    Although they come with no teflon coating I can tell no difference between 04 Record CF (which I had on before) and these S Azzurra Guizzo... meaning they shift as well as any crankset could.... they sure made my 486 look different.... in a nice way ... I like 'em . At certain point I had to stop letting the weight dictate what kinda bike I can have if you know what I mean....
