    Any reviews of the new Allez?

    The new model looks good, does it ride as good though?

    I've seen some initial reviews online.

    I'm curious where you found that picture, it isn't one of the color options that shows up on the specialized site for the US.

    Been digging around a bit about this bike and found it from a site in UK. It is supposed to be the Red Hook edition, I believe.

    Hmm... might be one of those colors that are only available in certain places. I'll have to check the bike store to see if they have it on their dealer site. On the US consumer site it isn't available in that color though I was able to find it listed in the GB site.

    It is based on the red hook edition of the allez sprint though that was all colored and not just parts like this version.

    A couple of points. Doesn't it look hideous. They took a leaf out of Cannondale's book and made the frame scrawnier. Even the Allez from 2006 is better looking than this.

    No it looks elegant. Specialized dropped weight on the new Allez by almost a pound. Its a superior bike to the model it replaces. The Allez Sprint with its aero cues will still be offered. Racers and better riders preferring a more aggressive geometry will still opt for the Sprint which has more sculpting.

    So it comes down to Twiggy or Katy Perry and personal preference. ;)
