I must admit, I did raise an eyebrow at the saddle

Wheelset looks ace. If I was building a bike up they would be my choice too. I like that they don't require taping for tubeless.

It’s coming along, 15.8 pounds as it sits minus 2 rotors, 1 caliper and a chain, thinking it will easily end up around 16.5 once it’s done and the cables and hoses are cut to length and the right stem and spacer stuck arrives. I thought it would be closer to 19 when I was planning.

Awesome and like the LOOK and model decals that many other modern stealth racers have removed.
Please keep that Brooks saddle handy for more eye candy joking and tributes to vintage racers

All that is left is bar tape and a little FD tuning.

Shadco Having had your bike for a whole year now, how do you like it? Was it hard to route the hoses and cables through the headset?

I stumbled upon this thread while researching a Look 765 in medium, which has almost perfect frame geometry for me. So few endurance bikes (i.e., stack:reach > 1.5) with a round seat post.

Lets see, what to say? This was my first hidden cable build and I used a mech groupo to complicate things a bit more.

The frame came without the top cable guide so routing was a little easier, Look came up with the missing piece later on and recently I pulled everything out and reinstalled everything with cables thru the spacer stack it was much easier since I had been there and done that once before. If I had it to do again I would probably go Ultegra Di2 which would be so much easier.

This is how she stands today at 17 lbs 2 oz.

Presumably if I buy the same frame now it would come with the top cable guide and matching steerer spacers, although I do not mind the hoses entering the head tube in front of the steerer as shown in your prior photos. To minimize the complication in either case, I would also go with Ultegra Di2. Your bike looks good! And 17.2 lbs. is pretty light; do you recall the frame and fork weights? How is the handling? (I only ask because of all the above posts re: slacker than common head tube angle.)

Frames I sold after I got mine all came complete with the top junction for cables thru the spacers. Mine was one of the first that came to the US and was missing that piece, once notified they provided the interim solution since they didn’t have the proper piece yet.

This is what was missing from my frame.



The only handling issue I’ve noted is a little bit of wandering at very low speeds on steep climbs but it isn’t a problem just different compared to my Aethos.

.didn’t get weights but mine has a Berk saddle, light weight turbo cotton tires, Ridenow tpu tubes, and an Edco 1 piece cassette all saving a noticeable amount of weight, the Campy groupo is also light as are the s-works carbon bars.

Oh and the Look carbon seatpost which doesn’t come with the frame.
