Personally, I think that stem kills that Look. The shape looks weird, plus it would look better if it was a -17deg. It's horribly staged as well. Stage it correctly, and change the stem, and it would be well over a hundred degrees.
What's the frame weight on that Look? Seems kinda heavy given the parts list.
garage doors are for people who can't take good pictures. You obviously can. Hot.
I think the staging is cool. Little more more DoF would be nice. On the bike itself, it looks like your drops could be rotated back a little (towards your knees) and the hoods raised a little though. The saddle nose looks a little down, but that could be lens distortion.
I hope that Look sees some race time and not just a trophy bike.
Both Looks are hot.
NOT! wrong gear, blue door, horrible seat, not enough drop to saddle...
Gears - yeah the gear is due to quickly gearing up on coming to a halt so I could get off again in a hurry. That bit slipped my mind.
The door - blue-yellow colour blind or just not a fan of primary colours and colour theory?
The saddle - not pretty sure, but ugly? I wouldn't go that far. It's black, more or less period correct, light, cheap and most importantly comfortable in it's position - more or less level from front to rear third, with the raised rear up enough to sit back on. Any more sloping and there'd be more pressure on my arms than I'd want on long rides.
NOT! hot is not a practical term. Its a pure esthetic state.
Definitely Hot! Curious about the Madfibers. I can barely see the ghost image of manufacturer decal on the front wheel, but not the back. Is this just the picture quality? Also noticed the red logo on front, not back. Any rationale? Just comparing the looks?

JSS, your bike is SICK. Very Hot....no matter what anyone says it's hot.
How do I post pictures? Been a member of different forums for years and never had an issue posting pics until BF.

There are some pretty special things I like about that Look. Spent some time on their site for the first time ever checking it all out. Pretty neat stuff. That stem is a complete utter fail product however. For one they don't make it in a 130mm, for too, it is way too heavy, and ugly. Your stem being not angled down enough just looks weird, it looks like it is set at zero degrees, which is never hot. Get some new bars, stem, and saddle, and that thing could close to the 11lb rang.
