The Look carbon bottle cage moves this into the "serious speed weapon" category :)

Hahaha yes! That's why it was so fast, because carbon instead of condition! Well the condition was terrible when I got it, putted much efford, beer and blood into it (~20hours I believe).
But it survived my workholiday :) I think I still got the frame in the basement
