    No lugs, no care. I'd rather have a Soma Stanyan for new school steel lugged goodness

    Well, I like it. It's steel. And steel is real. It's a step in the right direction. Who knows? Maybe next will be lugged frames?

    Lugs are but one method of joining tubes, fillet brazing has been around a long time so I have no
    problem with the Allez.
    It's a steel frame, it's all good.

    Raleigh is bringing back the Record Ace for 2010. It's a lugged steel frame (Reynolds 520) and has a full Ultegra group on it. Retail will be $1799.99. I'm seriously considering EP'ing one, selling off the Ultegra, and building it up with Record. The thing is freaking gorgeous. Oh, Brooks Swallow saddle is included.

    The Clubman gets cooler for 2010 as well. It now has colour-matched fenders. Still tig-welded 520 Reynolds.

    I bet $600 could get me a 3Rensho built Allez with Dura Ace.

    Have you ridden the 520 frames? I'm curious about the ride quality.

    A step in the right direction. Add lugs and a quill stem and I'd be interested.

    My Bianchi Pista is 520. Nothing unusual. But it's fixed gear with track geometry so it's hard to compare.

    OK, this years C&V Velo contest could be to spend $610, not $149.99...

    Instead of Velo Cheapo, it could be Velo, Uh-Oh....

    Specialized did a good thing. The price makes an entry level buyer really think about new vs. used, when before at that price, it was used or nothing. Well, other than the Denali.

    And I'll bet the words "used bike" will come up a little more often, if a buyer thinks $610 is too high.

    I've ridden the Clubman. It's a very nice riding bike. If I do get a Record Ace (when they become available), I'll be sure to post a review.

    I see this talk of steel has awakened Johnny Pi**off.

    The Raleigh sound very intriguing! Think I'll do some homework...

    It looks like the Allez at $610 is a far better deal than the Fuji Connoisseur is at $1500.
