The Ultimate Look 695 Mondrian - LOOK!

Hello again computerized people! This is Cal at Wrench Science with an art exhibit on wheels! Tom from Modesto came to me one glorious Berkeley day - with true artistic flare, and a little wildness in his eyes - demanding the perfect build to compliment his Look 695 frameset in the classic Mondrian paint scheme.

A little education! Piet Mondrian was a Dutch painter, famous for his primary colors on white backgrounds inside horizontal and vertical black lines - if you are a road cycling fan you would recognize the style from the logo of the LOOK Cycle brand. The powerhouse La Vie Claire cycling team of the mid 1980s also featured the Mondrian style on their team kits - both Bernard Hinault and Greg LeMond took the colors to Tour de France victory.
