Hello from Phoenix, Arizona

Great weather here, horrible politics, but a great place to bike! I'm just getting back into it after about a 7 year hiatus. I'm riding a new Specialized Allez Steel that I bought yesterday from the good folks over at DNA Cycles. My last bike was aluminum. I went back to steel. I like the look and feel better.

Agree totally, steel does look and ride so much better, and with the newer technology there is absolutely no weight advantage with the other materials. Have any pics of your ride?
