Finally finished a bargain Look 585 build

A few new parts, a few NOS parts from eBay (the 3T Funda fork especially), a few from the parts bin and some help from the Paceline crowd, I finally put it together for a very short shakedown ride. Bargain frame courtesy of user 'Look 585'--thanks!

The Chorus 10 shifters and mechs came off my "good" bike probably 6 or 7 years ago, and I was waiting for the right frame. I added the current generation Chorus black brakes. Record crankset was courtesy of the Forum, but I did some horse-trading to end up with a matching Record 10 set.

Quite possibly--I kind of lost track because I dragged the build out over so many months! I know I picked up a saddle and some pedals from you for another bike.

Finally--feeling well enough for a short (and I mean short!) ride.

Cockpit is perfect--I was guesstimating as I went--and the slight setback on the Zipp post is about perfect for the slightly shorter (for me) top tube. I like the Deda RHM bars (slightly beefier on top). Needs a little adjustment on the derailleurs--I miss having the barrel adjusters on the head tube.

Bike is about like it shows in the original photo, but I added a set of older Zondas (thanks binxnyrwarrsoul)--I really like the sound of those wheels with the Vitt 25s on them...

This is my first all-carbon, and it is a different experience than a steel bike. And I think I can understand why these 585s were such a hit.

Going to try for a short ride every second day and get some fitness back!!!

Oh, and I need some affordable modern WB cages...

(I obviously have no basis for comparison of what this rode like with the original fork, but someone on the Paceline originally said that the Funda would be a good replacement fork for a 585 and I agree--nearly identical crown to dropout measurement, similar rake, and similar beefy profile. So if you have a 585 frame minus a fork, the Funda is probably a pretty good choice. The one on mine is the 3T Funda Team--Look: axle to crown 368mm; 43 rake; 3T: axle to crown 367mm; 43 rake (also 49 so order carefully). Headset is also a replacement FSA xx--same spec as the Cane Creek 110.IS41: 1 1/8" threadless, 36x45 degree bearing standard, 41mm OD spec.)

Looks really schweet! That fork looks like it came stock with the frame.

Is the 3T fork specifically for integrated headset frames? Those 585's have integrated headsets, right?

Enjoy that sweet ride.

Yes--integrated. There were a lot of the Funda forks around for a while because they were spec'd on Cervelos, and there was some kind of warranty replacement program. In fact, the fork that I almost bought was one of those, but this one turned up NOS on eBay instead.

Ride # 3--still old 'n slow...

I like it, a lot. Classic.

So... having ridden it a few times, are you changing your user name... ?

Getting a little fitness back--and I can say that this bike rocks!

I'm getting a little of my mojo back--and I really like how this frame tracks on decents. Like good steel, with a little more dampening of road buzz. Not sure about the fatter top on the bars, but adding a new chain solved the nagging shift problems I was having.

Position is pretty much spot on--so glad I went Large instead of XL.

No change of user name planned.

Here's a picture--more or less dialed in with bars taped etc. Still may swap saddle...
