    short head tube and the previous owner cut the steerer tube down, not to mention I ride a 58 and that was a 56, seat is still higher than bars so as far as I'm concerned its fair game...

    Huh, I didn't know you could do that. Makes sense. But if the cable crosses on the downtube, doesn't it rub against each other while shifting? I guess it doesn't do any damage by doing so... I might try it! :-)

    Actually, I wouldn't bother. It was hard enough to wiggle the cable out the slot by the BB of my BMC frame, I don't want to cross them inside, either.

    Besides, the sharp bends of the cables under the bartape are enough to negate a slightly bigger radius in the housings between the bars and the frame.

    Must have really liked the other Allez to get another one. Brand loyalty is a good sign.

    Great looking bike.

    it was hard enough to get the yokozuna housings to do the criss cross bend. keeping them on the original side required too much housing, or too much pressure to bend it. Amazingly, it wasn't hard at all to get the cables out of the bottom of the downtube. took about 3 tries per side.

    loved it, just wanted to step up from the Tiagra/sora combo. The 105 is a huge improvement.

    They are 3T Ergonovas and they're not as shallow as the pic implies. The other view shows a more realistic profile. I'm not sure if they qualify as compacts though.

    Here's my very modest, entry-level Mexican road-bike:


    It was ~400 us, non-series shimano components. Been riding it for about 15 days, I really like it!

    Thinking of upgrading to an Allez in half a year or so.

    My 2010 Litespeed Xicon that I bought in April. It was built with an unused Ultegra 6600 kit from a donor bike that the LBS had on hand. I'm liking the "Ti" feel so far. Sorry, tried to "flip it" but my back said "no!"
