2011/2012 Look 695 SR Carbon Fiber Road Racing Bike
The Look 695 carbon fiber road bike is an exceptionally well-made carbon fiber road racing bicycle, which is apparent as soon as one (a) observes the stunning layout of the carbon fiber on a frame that has minimal paint, and (b) as soon as one rides the bike and feels the solidity and precision.
One doesn’t have to order the colorful paint styles in the 'Collection Unique', and that note that paint adds significant weight. The carbon fiber layup is so expertly done, it seems a shame to hide it under paint. But the paint jobs are beautiful. Tough choice. But my #1 choice would be the exquisite 25th Anniversary 3K matte finish, with the subtle logo and with the deletion of the large “25” on the fork.
Shown below is the frame I tested, along with my own Lightweight Obermayer wheels and Shimano DuraAce pedals.
Look offers the 25th Anniversary edition with the Lightweight Standard wheelset with the Duraflon (white) coating on the aero part of the rim and the spokes.
Spoke and rim color are a matter of taste (I prefer the matte black logos and black spokes), but in my experienced view, the Lightweight Standard wheelset adds more stiffness to an already eminently stiff frame, and thus I would strongly advise most riders to instead opt for the lighter and more comfortable and amply stiff Lightweight Obermayer wheelset.
The frame style shown below is what I would choose for the frame, using my wheels as seen above. Though the special edition country-style pain is really impressively beautiful.
