The Look 566 is more than just another road bike; it’s a high performance work of art with a comfortable ride. The frame utilizes a proprietary blend of high modulus and high resistance carbon fiber, which makes the frame very light without compromising strength or ride quality. In addition to its carbon construction the 566 incorporates several features to increase its impeccable ride and fit. The geometry is Pro Tour, with a higher head tube and shorter top tube. This brings the handlebars up and in just a little to make things a more comfortable. You’ll be amazed at how much more comfortable this little change improves the ride.

Fit and frame construction are only half the equation to this amazing build. Smooth responsive shifting is what you’ll get with the 566’s SRAM Rival drivetrain. The silky smooth lever blades of the shifters not only look good but they feature SRAM’s propriety Double Tap technology. Keeping in contact with the road are smooth and fast rolling Mavic Aksium Race wheels with Vittoria tires.

        Best Uses

        • Um riding on the road

        Got this to replace a race-geometry bike which is great but not for my 43-year old back. This bike rides smoothly, has decent components, and has a better geometry for me at this point in my life. Also nicely finished and looks like a traditional bike without too much tube shaping. Toss the seat-it's a boat anchor. For the inquiring minds out there: with new saddle, seat post, stem, bars, and my old ksyrium sl's it weighs under 16 pounds. And that's not the lightest stuff out there. Really can't ask for more, at this price especially. I am completely happy and satisfied with this bike. Thanks for the deal!

        Great value, awesome bike

        By Mel

        from Texas

        Pros

        First off, I am not a racer. I'm just a guy who likes to get out for a few hours each week and ride.

        I love this bike. The first thing that struck me was the vibration dampening quality of the carbon frame. This is my first carbon ride, and I was surprised by it, even on less than stellar road conditions. It's also about 3+ pounds lighter than my aluminum bike.

        This is also my first bike with SRAM components, and if they hold up as well as my old 105s, I'll be a convert for sure. I like the double tap shifting, and I love the crisp shifts. You know when you've shifted, and there's virtually no lag. The front does have a long throw, but since most of my rides are relatively flat with a few rollers, I don't shift the front much anyway. This doesn't bother me.

        The Selle saddle is much more comfortable than I expected, and the wheelset is solid, but not spectacular. Then again, at this price point, the Aksiums are great wheels; certainly wheels I can roll with at 5'11", 160lbs.

        Negatives? Seriously, none. I'll upgrade the tires soon enough, since I'm not a huge fan of the slicks it came with, but now I'm just nitpicking.

        All in all, this is a great bike for me. The geometry works and it's stiff enough for what I do. I can see that it might not be stiff enough for really hammering a sprint or trying to power up a big climb; that's just not what I need. It's more than fast enough to hang with the local group ride, though, and comfortable, too.

        The bike is worth more than what it's posted for, by far. Nobody locally could match a full carbon road bike with a 100% SRAM Rival groupset, not even close.

        The frame fits very well, and is solid. It's not as stiff as one might expect, but this frame is designed for comfort so the flex exists for a reason, and I like that. Relaxed geometry gives you a comfortable fit for long distances.

        The Rival groupset is very precise in its shifts. It feels very solid through the shift paddles. You get a nice audible and tactile click for shifts. The hoods are a little wide for my taste, but it's manageable, even though they create this odd hump on the top towards the back of the hood where it overlaps bartape. Yes, the groupset is loud, but not to an annoying level. Coming from a much quieter bike, i'm not upset at all.

        The rest of the kit is solid. Compact handlebars for those with smaller hands, a nice curve to it. The saddle is much better than expected, but I might have just gotten lucky. Seatpost is nice being full carbon, but the two bolt mount is pretty bad. It creaks a lot. It will be the first thing replaced.

        The Mavic wheels are a very solid set. Not too heavy, but not super light (I think they're ~1800g without tubes/tires). The freehub is very loud, but I like that, reminds me to keep pedaling. The Vittoria tires are solid, no complaints or praise.

        Overall for the price paid, it's an amazing bike.

        Best Uses

        • Road

        I mostly ride mtn but some roadie co-workers got me into road bikes. I use road mostly to stay fit if I can't make it out on the trails. Was riding a very nice Italian steel frame from the 80's, still have it but was looking for something more modern to ride longer distances.

        I like the more relaxed riding position, much more like my mtn bike than a true race frame. Climbing is excellent and much more enjoyable than the steel frame. I've always only used Shimano so this is my first bike with SRAM components. They're OK, I think the Rival is a bit noisy, even compared to my 25+ year old Ultegra 600 on the steel frame. But everything works and I don't plan on changing the drivetrain.

        Overall a very nice ride. Changed the tires to Cont GP 4000 S and glad I did, much lower rolling resistance the the Vittorias that came with it. I like the fact that you don't see many Looks on the road.

        Nice Bike

        Already have a White/blk 2009 Look 566 with Shimano ultegra which is a great bike. For the price this bike with Sram is a very good price. I wanted to try the double tap and figured for this price I will be set on road bikes for years to come.The red and white looks great and will use wheels I already have and sell the Mavics the bike came with on [@]
