Hi all,

I recently came across an unused still in a box Look Carbon Frame. It says KG-66 on the box that it is in. I think it is probably like 10 years old or something like that.

I've read up about the carbon shelf life especially the delamination problem faced by 1st generation carbon alu lugged frames.

This frame has been offered to me at a ridiculously low price and it looks fantastic as it has been in a sealed box all this time.

Was wondering whether anyone used to own or still owns one of these. Any comments about this particular frame?

Regards.
Sean

I have a KG76 and a KG86. 1 is 12 years old and the other is 10 years old. No problems at all. What size is the frame?

Frame size is 58cm C-T. I have had a few mixed reviews about this frame. Some have claimed to have snapped the bottom bracket shell off on really steep climbs, others claim that it flexes a lot. Some say that if Carbon frames are not used for a long time, it turns brittle as the fibres harden up?

I've had no problems with any of my LOOK's after thousands of miles.
