I will pick up my new roadbike, a Look 361, tomorrow, and I promised myself, and declared on this site, that I would only whine/covet internally about the latest and greatest since I like the bike and componants I am getting b/c they fit my needs. However, I see now that I suffer from the sin of coveting, and that not coveting, or keeping it to myself, is going to be much harder then I originally thought. I can say that the one good note is that I understand a lot better some of the postings on RBR now, particularly the whole Merak thing.
Wholly smokes!No_sprint

Yeah Look's are an odd breed. They look great but even better in person. But man-O-man the RIDE is to die for.
One other thing that doesn't come across in the pics is how pretty the shaped headtube/hidden headset really is.( actually all the shaped tubes on the 381i are beautiful)It creates just a fine line at the fork headtube junction.
Very pretty! Also the canecreek headset has been working flawlessly for me.
So many beautiful Looks!look271

The graphics on these show bikes are shouting LOOK! LOOK! so loudly, I just couldn't resist with the poseur comment. Sorry in advance if I offended anybody...

Don't Look? (No offense taken.) At least it doesn't say "TREK".

For the ulimate in a poseur ride, it should say....Starliner

I'd keep one of the big L O O K decals on the top tube, and add the letters "A" "T" "M" "E" in smaller size and put them within the LOOK letters (the "A" in the L, T in the O, and so on).

For the downtube, I'd modify the LOOK logo, swapping the K with the L so that it would read "K O O L", and add the letters "I" "A" "M", with the I in the K; the A inside the second O, and the M inside the L.

with the result.... L O O K at me! I am K 0 0 L!

Guaranteed to be a real babe magnet, even if it is made of carbon fiber.
Try this one instead!Tig

MUCH batter.... Ahhhh!
Cool - but what's up w/ the bottom bracket?OffTheBack

Is that a new 'oversize' BB, or does it just look funny in the photo?

I think it is a generic bolt & washer just to close the opening. Not a BB
Batter? What kind of batter?look271

Pancake? Chocolate chip? Plz tell me, I gotta know!
Oops, sorry about the Arnold Schwarzenegger impression!Tig
