    I'm 244 lbs down from 275 and ride a LOOK 555 the frame handles me fine, even on the rough San Francisco streets. I think they over build bikes in my opinion.

    I am 225lbs and rode a Look 585 Ultra. I know when I was shopping I was pointed to that frame for rigidity.

    its the same color as that one ! im getting it on the tenth
    having a hard time deciding on sram red or campy ten , everything i use currently runs campy but red is so much lighter and almost a grand cheaper ?
    oh and im getting the frame for 700 muahhaha
    Yep, it's sad. Local cycling around here does deserve better. But there's always that "not invented here in Texas" inbreed attitude to deal with as well which stops progress.

    That's a killer price for that frame. I got quite a bit more for mine and just sold it a month ago.

    I am moving away from the Campy Chorus that was on that bike above and am gonna try SRAM.

    Haven't bought the SRAM stuff yet. I am still paying off my BMC Pro Machine frame. The SRAM is next then a set of Easton EA90 SLX's will follow that. So another couple of months but I will post pics when it's done.

    I switched from Shimano Ultegra SL to SRAM Red a little over a year go. Love the SRAM stuff. If you're installing it yourself, do read the directions. I tried to tune the derailleurs like they were Shimano and got a bit frustrated. Eventually followed the SRAM adjustment sequence and everything worked like a charm. SRAM's levers fit my hands much better than Shimano, I love DoubleTap, and the rear derailleur shifts so fast it's hard to comprehend. Not nearly as smooth and quiet as Shimano, so if you value that SRAM probably isn't for you.
