Pretty sweet looking ride. Along those lines, if you look at Team Once in the 2002 team section in the new Cycle Sport magazine, you will notice that the bike featured in the picture is a TCR with carbon seat stays. Hint, look at the rear dropout. I didn't notice it at first, until the wrench at my LBS pointed it out.
Beaver, what size LOOK jersey are you looking for? NMDave Hickey

I have a Euro Size 4. I'll take a picture of it tonight. It's never been worn. LOOK in france actually sent me 2 jerseys. I've kept one.
It's red, back and off white with the LOOK logo on the front, back and sleeves.

I was told yesterday by the rep that they are going to produce an alloy frame with carbon rear stays as well. This will be a cheaper alternative to the full carbon. They are currently having problems that they have to work out before they(full carbons) go into production. I wouldn't rush out and buy one as soon as they come out(bit like firest release software). And the price will be some what similar to a trek I would think. What strikes me is how similar it looks to a trek. My first thought when I saw it was is it a compact trek?
