    special eddition 2013 gold allez race frame

    has anyone seen one of these in person? my lbs has access to one but the pic doesn't do it justice. I would like to hear from anyone who has seen one or has pics of one built up.

    im not really a 'gold frame' kind of guy but if it looked cool built up would consider it

    thanks!

    I just saw it yesterday and it is pretty incredible. The pictures make it look more brown but it is gold! I am building it up with my Dura Ace 7900 Groupset and Carbon wheels. The black on gold is going to be ridiculous!

    Got mine in this afternoon. These were a VERY limited run only offered to dealers as personal bikes, so picking one up will be tough... At least until your mechanic is really hard up for beer money. The frame is even better than I expected, the anodized finish is phenomenal. I guess it's obvious what I'll be working on tomorrow!

    Very nice, looks like King Midas's bike. Also reminds me of this:

    Old La Honda in less than 20 minutes! Or you can watch race video from the low-key hill climb on Welch Creek. More at www.biketelemetry.com.

    No wonder it was a better price than the black frame.... Didn't realize it was so rare until I couldn't find the pick he showed me online and no one on here had heard of it.... Tempting

    Preferring the stealth look, not my fav, but in traditional Spec fashion, well executed.

    I usually prefer the stealth look as well; my other bikes are all black or gray. Gold is definitely a departure for me, but I think it'll look great with black components and deepish carbon wheels. There were so few of these made (I want to say around 65 or so) that it made my choice in a new performance aluminum frame an easy one, especially since I was already leaning toward the new allez race. At any rate, I'll post completed pics and would love to see anyone else's build. Cheers!

    Here are some photos of mine. It rides awesome and it had come in at the same weight as my carbon BH G5.

    I have Dura Ace 7900 and Ultegra with a SRAM Red Crank. Yeah I don't care about mixin it up.
