Wow! I just got my new Look on the road for the first time with Campy Record, and a 40mi crit this past weekend....This bike is a dream....

Stiff and light(17lbs - Campy and Mavic Wheels) - my initial thoughts are - as stiff as al, but a bit more forgiving....need to put more miles on....

I'll keep all posted with any exceptions to my thoughts....

Good Riding!

I have the same frame with Dura Ace and Ksyrium SL's, got mine on the road about 6 wks ago. Nice ride isn't it? wouldn't trade mine for the world. After my crash in my crit this last week though, I may not ever race the 381i, I may just stick to racing my aluminum GT, less heart ache when damaged, not to mention the financials. enjoy!!
I know....that would make me sickcharyne

Hope the "al can be just as comfortable as other materials if only it's made in a quality way" crowd doesn't get after you for that! :-)

I still think there is a major weakness in their argument in assuming that different materials can be made to supply more or less exactly the same ride if only done right. Let's see them do that with a frame made of rock.

The Look gets universal high ratings for decent stiffness combined with a compliant ride. Lucky you. Enjoy!
