Tour de France Pro Bike: Moncoutié’s LOOK 695 IPACK

Cofidis riders have perhaps the most expensive bike in the peloton. The LOOK 695 module (frame, fork, headset, stem, seatpost, bb, crank) is $6,000. Add in Campagnolo Super Record and Fulcrum Racing Speed XLR wheels and the total price is north of $10,000.

Cofidis rider David Moncoutié is one of the most respected men in the Tour peloton. He can always be counted on to get in the breakaway that stays clear. He may not always take home the stage (as we saw in Friday’s stage 13 of this year’s Tour) but he always poses a threat.

His LOOK 695 IPACK is one of the most distinctive bikes in the WorldTour. The styling is pure French with a strong nod in the direction of function over form. But whether you like the looks or not, the adjustability of the 695 is impressive.

Moncoutié’s numbers:

Seat height: 76.7 cm
Reach from saddle nose to handlebar center: 57.3 cm
Crank arm length: 175 mm
Stem length: 13 cm
Bar width: 42 cm

The crank features a pedal insert that allows the owner to change crank length. The spider has holes for standard and compact chainrings. The stem can be adjusted for angle and changes from 12 to 13cm in length depending on the orientation of an insert. Even the seat post features huge fore/aft adjustment.
