(closed)
No details yet but it looks like a throwback to the kg233. Thoughts?

It looks pretty cheap tbh.
Looks like they're making their own version of a kilo tt to attract to the fixie crowd.
(Deep wheels, front brake)

WHAT THE FUCK

that's awful
why. i just ask why goddammit.

it's a fixie, a fucking chinese frame with "tange" tubings, standard geometries like 10 milions fixies in the world and horrible components.

and the worst thing is the paintjob: these colours belong to LOOK's most important frames, the ones that led LOOK su success and notoriety (AL264, KG196, 233, 296, 386 and 396), not to the failure like this shit.

There's a big difference between someone who wants a track bike for the road and someone who wants a fixie. Dixie's are usually cheap pieces of shit. Look is going for the fixie crowd. How can you expect anything other than cheap shit?
Maybe they shouldn't have gone after the cheap fixie crowd, but I guess they're taking the "get em while they're young, broke, and in college", then hopefully they'll buy the real shit a few years later...
Most companies, in any industry, do this...

The frame has a pretty decent look to it, 80s-esque color scheme and all. Overall build is appalling; those wheels are paining me.

At first glance it seemed like a good chance to get my hands on a classic-looking Look.
Then i saw the threadless fork/headset and the bottle cage bosses.
They ruined everything.
