    Always hated this one. You'd almost expect it to transform into Darth Vader.

    Darth Vader in a man bra, prone to falling over, that is.

    they aint got no alibi,
    they ugly.

    Those disk brakes hurt my eyes.
    Please let this be a fad that passes quickly without causing too many "casualties".....








    (fast forward two years to me trying to delete this post before changing my mind and buying a set because on the road their braking power is superior and safety is etc etc..........)

    Re: the disc brakes

    Ettore Bugatti was once asked why he put such a poor braking system on his sports cars. He replied that he built his cars to go, not to stop!

    The disc brakes look peculiar on a bike that has been optimised to be aerodynamic, especially since they won't get much heavy use in a TT, or am I wrong about that?

    I don't think that's an ugly bike. It's not a looker either though. Those wheels are very nice though.

    No idea. Proof of its ugliness?

    You'd expect to find this in a skip outside Look's R&D:

    It's the funky bit on the top and down tubes which ruin it for me.

    This, not pretty, but probably very collectable.

    i gotta say, i disagree with you on this one. To my eye the look 675 is gorgeous (especially in red white and black ---> here ). Beauty is in the eye of the beholder i suppose :pac:

    You might find this hard to believe, but I met a guy who has one of these, and he had to put a riser on the stem:eek: Turned a beauty into a fugly in one swipe. Bike cost him about 4000 eruo I think. Riser cost about 20 euro.

    What's the thing sticking up from the handlebars? Some kind of spike, just to keep the rider focussed??
