My bike is finally built up! LOOK :-)(14 posts)

My bike is finally built up! LOOK :-)Cheezhead

Hey guys, finally finished building up my KG381. I gotta say it looks cooler and rides soooo much better than I ever thought a bike could! My last ride was an OCLV which was a great bike, but my Look blows it away! Details are:

Full Dura-Ace group
Nimble Fly clincher carbon wheels
Deda Newton handlebar and stem
USE Alien seatpost
Selle Italia SLR Saddle
Speedplay X1 pedals
Shimano Flightdeck wireless computer

The final weight as pictured is just under 17 lbs. Any comments/questions appreciated!

Say Cheez

Awesome looking bike. All the black makes it look so stealthy and fast. Hope it treats you well.

I also built up a KG 381 over the winter. Been having a great time with it so far. It also nice to ride a bike that you don't see everyday (at least where I live). No complaints (other than I wish I had more time to ride) and no regrets. Enjoy!

I agree about the ride. I have the 381i also but in kelme colors. Very nice ride isn't it? I am a convert now to this geometry after riding Italian for 13+ years.
This laid back is so much better for my climbing & overall just fits better IMO.

Thanks for the comments guys! The ride is absolutely awesome! And it climbs sooo well! I have the rear wheel pushed all the way forward, which i think really helps the geometry of the bike in the hills. As far as the carbon cranks... all in due time! In the meantime I'm just enjoying the ride.
