just purchased a look kg56 1992? model at a yard sale. shimano 7 speed. mavic wheels. bike seems to be in good shape. I weigh 255lbs. Am I too heavy for this bike? I ride a specialized aliez 2002 model. Just been road riding for 1 year.thanks for any info.

You might be pushing the limits of this bike. They save very small diameter seat stays. I'd guess this will be too flexible. The newer LOOK's have a much stronger construction. I own of the older LOOK's, KG86 and KG76 but I only weight 150lbs. What size is it?

thanks for the reply. the bike is a 56cm. I purchased the bike for $125.00. trying to get my 15 year old to ride with me. he is 6' 1" 255. also thought about using on my trainer.
it says carbon composite generation 4 on top tube. thanks!
