140*380 EXS bars on.
:thumbup: Any problems fitting the EXS Aerover bar? Close up of the bar and spacers? Did you just use the spacers that came with the bike?

This was using the EXS ACR spacers, bit of a gap between the frame and cover that closed up to about 1mm under compression.No other issues, will probably try and find a better fitting cover for it and pull some spacers out to get lower once I'm used to the bike.

Very clean with the Aerovers and a lot more cost effective!

Look forward to hearing what you think of the 795 - I've been very happy with mine and have zero complaints :beerchug:

The magnet works well when the stem is cut close, but any excess space between and not so much.

The double sided tape is a good idea, but also make sure the lower/back clip is inserting fully engaged with the top spacer.
I managed to lose my headset cover. Look Australia cannot provide a date to provide a replacement - can anyone suggest an alternative source / vendor?

I'd also like to buy a spare derailleur hanger - any suggestions for a vendor for this? (A Shimano direct mount hanger would be preferred - any suggestions?)

Thanks in advance

Yes - ciclimattio - contact them directly and one of their sales reps will be able to order both items directly from Look for you.

I currently have both items on back order and they are due to arrive mid-April. Hanger = 20.49 euros, headset top cap = 21.31 euros. HTH

Can anyone offer an opinion on the geometry? Mostly how the bike feels (subjective) with the steeper seat angle compaired to other bikes youve riden. I like a steep seat angle and longer reach this seems like the perfect geometry.

I tried ciclimattio and they were unable to help me. Did you order the hanger for the 2024 version of the 795? Do you have the Look part number for it? Many thanks

Yes definitely for the new Blade RS - below are the part numbers that were on the invoice, not sure whether these are Look or Ciclimattio P/Ns but hope they are of assistance:

Hi WW Team,

Im looking at purchasing a Small size 795 Blade.
Question on bar width....
LOOK website specs the Small size frame with 40cm bars.
Can anyone inform what the bar width (C to C or Outside to outside) is at the brake hoods is for the Small size frame?
Do the bars flare out in the drops? how wide C to c at end of drops?

thanks in advance.

Bar Top CC:40cm
Brake hoods CC: 41cm
Drop bar ends CC: 42cm

I rode mine for the first tile today. Compared to other bikes I own it feels more aggressive, you sit more lower and with more weight on the front bars. Have to say all 3 bikes are set identical to the mm acuracy in seat height, setback, stack and reach... etc.

My other bikes : Merida Scultura Team and Wilier 0SLR

Nice color but prefer my black Iconic... besides, what is wrong with Look. Are they going backwards and ofering a DA 11speed di2?… check the specs here: https://www.lookcycle.com/gr-en/product ... white-r50d

Garmin Edge 1050 fits the standard mount that comes with bars (just). In case anyone wondering.
