    Thanks for the post! I was looking for an Sworks Allez 2014-2015. No luck at all. Called many well know Spesh dealerships in Cali and one in the east coast (tip from another member)...to no avail. Anyways, since the DSW technology has trickled down to the non-sworks frames, I am actually thinking about the DSW SL COMP. I actually like the color scheme. Will likely just get the frame set though, as I have better parts lying around than the stock parts, as well as a set of ENVE 25 tubulars lying around to finish the build. Now just have to wait for availability and pricing info....

    If you want that color way, more than likely, you'll have to buy the complete... you may get lucky and that may be one of the options for the frame set, but I wouldn't bet on it. It entirely possible they may just keep the same colors they had last year for the frame set option.

    Hmmmm... interesting, it seems that doing that has revealed a hidden portion of the website. Specialized has loaded up the pictures and info, but not connected the pages to the links in the main website. Looking at this though, we can see a couple of the color offered and it does seem that the polished aluminum frame will be offered as a frame set.

    That link leads to the Aruba region.

    The Japan region seems to have more info up but doesn't necessarily reflect what will be available in the US.

    The color ways for the US market will be slightly different from some colorways showing in different regions

    Sure thing.

    The photo shown above by Cni2 is a correct colorway.
    (The polished aluminum w/ red/black)

    And then there is this:

    I was informed today $900 for the DSW SL Comp frameset if purchased at MSRP. No exact dates for delivery yet.

    Mid-August is typically when they start shipping I believe.
    Don't quote me on that though.

    Thanks. I like this green color scheme. I saw this in the Asia catalog and hoped it would make it's way here, too. I'm not a fan of the polished aluminum finishes nor the matte black of 2015. This one might be what I end up with.

    Looks like only the sprint models come with internal routed cables, that sucks

    Can't wait until the 2x frameset becomes available.

    Maybe just me, but the Allez Sprint X1 sprint frameset @ $1350 seems pricey. Especially with the USD being as strong as it is. Other frames I would rather go with for that money. Or just spend another $300 and get a Felt F1 frameset.

    Bike Radar says the Sprint frame should only be $900. Specialized Allez Sprint drops hammer on carbon - BikeRadar USA

    Interesting to me is how the Specialized spin machine is already positioning this new frame against the current generation DSW Allez frame.

    "Specialized hasnít yet revealed final claimed weights for the production bikes but the target during the later prototype stage was around 1,100g Ė almost exactly the same as the current Allez, which only uses Smartweld in the head tube area. That frame isnít exactly renowned for its rigidity but the new Allez Sprint supposedly more than makes up that gap."

    I've never heard anyone describe the current generation Allez as lacking in rigidity. I previously had an A1 aluminum tricross with BSA BB and the Allez is significantly stiffer... the down tube and bb on the Allez are massive.

    FWIW, I tested the Allez Comp and Tarmac Sport back to back and I could tell the difference in the BB area and in the comfort department on rough roads. It wasn't a major difference mind you, but you could feel it. There are reviews out there that complain more than what I felt though.
