Look KG461 frame and forks HHSRB potential 58cm

Posted on
  • The clearout continues and I have this Look KG461 Laurent Jalabert frameset up for grabs in size 59.

    It is light, fast and gives a nippy and responsive ride and has that nice mix of bad typography and garish decals typical of early 00s frames, Look being some of the worst (best) offenders.

    Full carbon frame, full carbon forks and with a carbon steerer and an integrated FSA headset. The frame has some nice features like the pinch bolt for the seat tube for instance and nice tight clearances.

    Couple of points, whoever chopped the steerer before it came to me did a pretty slapdash job, so any future owner might want to reconsider worth re-cutting. As it is it is fine, and perfectly rideable but worth mentioning nonetheless. Secondly the derailleur hanger is slightly cross-threaded. Again, this is how it came to me. If building it up geared then you could either get the thread tapped by your LBS or just buy a replacement hanger which are £15 and easily sourced online.

    Otherwise the frame features the usual scuffs commensurate with a frame of this age, but no dents, or cracks.

    Happy to post at cost or otherwise collection from Tower Hamlets.

    £200 for frame, fork, headset and BB. Happy to send many more photos and answer any questions via WhatsApp.

  • Gosh, do I need another look…

  • Well I currently have a 595, a 565 and this 461, so I'm going to say yes

    Love this sort of thing so much. My size too, close to impulse buy for me. Must resist.
    Price seems very reasonable for so much hhsrb potential. Free Bump.

  • I think my 241 is a 58cm, any ideas if this will fit similarly or is the 1cm difference gonna throw me?

  • The top tube is 58 c-c and that is the most important measurement in terms
    of fit. Seatpost is 59 c-c and 61 c-t. I used to own a 241 in the exact same size funnily enough.

    I’m pretty sure Look frames of this era were always stamped with odd numbers in terms of sizing ie 53, 55, 57, 59. And now they use S, M, L, XL

  • I’m 6’2 and “normal” proportions I typically run a 58cm TT and a 12cm stem
    on all of my bikes, if that helps with a saddle height of 80cm from centre of BB to top of saddle

  • I really wish this was a bit smaller

  • Sorry, I can’t help with that, but having often wanted frames that have been either too big or too small, I feel your pain
