    Vintage Specialized Allez - Jim Merz Reviews

    Hi. Are there any current owners of vintage Specialized Allez bikes designed by Jim Merz? Curious to know how these compare to the newer Specialized steel bikes (1987-1991 in particular). Have been looking at used Merz-designed Allez for awhile but not sure I want to make the jump sight-unseen to an unfamiliar frame. I have a 1987 Allez SE and a 1993 Serotta Colorado Legend CRL as my only rideable steel bike frames of reference at present. Thanks in advance.

    I do not own one, but I saw a Merz branded frame on display at Eroica and it was a work of art. Some of the nicest, thinned pointed lugs Iíve seen. I know, not helpful, but those bikes have a good reputation.

    I found one on fleabay today. Will post about it after I've had a chance to clean it up and ride it.
