Has anyone seen one yet, any thing to report good or bad. Looks very interesting. The top tube sizing is a little confusing. In a Cannondale I take a 54 center to center. With a 100 mm stem and straight seat post this seems to fit pefect and would like to get the Look KG 486 as close to this as possible. Thanks Steve A

Top tube length by itself is meaningless. You must also have a seat tube angle to go with it.

The only C'dale with a 54cm TT length is a nonstock 53cm with a 74 degree STA.

A 54cm (stock size) frame with a 54.5cm TT and 74 STA would be more common.

The LOOK geometry is at www.lookcycle.com. The "shema" icon brings up a picture of the geometry.

The medium size KG486 has a 54.5cm TT and 74 STA, which is identical to a 54cm C'dale.

Your right, perfect info the C-Dale is a Caad 5 and after I did the recheck you are right on. It looks like the Med. will be dead nuts on. This Look frame should be most interesting? and should make for a nice bike.
