I thought I got a good deal on a road bike, but now I'm afraid to ride it. It's a Specialized Allez "Epic" and from what I've read on the Internet it was probably made in 1989 or so. It's light and rides nice but I didn't know the whole "CARBON FIBER BLOWS UP AND KILLS YOU" thing when I got it. Now I guess it's an "Epic" failure on my part.
I'm thinking I should just take the 105 hardware and put it on a old metal frame.
It's a 60cm and I weigh probably 225lbs or so.
Tell me it's going to break in half and impale me in the street, and you'll save my life.
