I ordered my Look

By In Cycling

OK, so I did it. I had the shop send me a high res picture of the red Look 585, and it looked awesome. It is red on the side walls, but clear on the tops of the tubes, giving you a view into the carbon mesh under the resin. I think I will like this color. Now onto the components! I already decided on the Shimano Dura-Ace group set with a compact crank (maybe someday I would be able to ride with a normal crank?) and the Zipp Team CSC wheelset.
