Look 595 - A True All-Carbon

RoadcyclingUK.com has more pictures of the new LOOK bike, the 595. Pictures of the new Tour bike leaked out four weeks ago on rbr.com forums (via bicidacorsa.com) but now we have details and close up pictures. Following in the footsteps of Giant and Time, LOOK has integrated their seatpost into the frame. The seat is affixed to the frame/seatpost by a "bung" system (yeah, I don't know either), a sort-of mini-seatpost that wedges into the frame held in place by elastomer bands. Being masters of carbon, the new 595 is truly an all-carbon frame, meaning carbon lugs, drop outs, and BB shell. The only alloy on the entire bike are the BB threads and the bottle cage threads. This use of carbon and a new fork design (HSC6) allow the 595 to be lighter than the 585 (1052 grams, real world weight, 55cm sans seatpost) and stiffer to boot. Also new for the 595 is internal downtube cable routing.
