I knew it was a mistake posting "improper" pics in here! Was all pumped to go for my first ride today and then...THUNDERSTORMS
newb here. Been putting lots of miles on this since I got a stress fracture. Bought it for $250 with upgraded handlebars, stem, saddle, seat post. Added fresh bar tape, spd pedals from a friend, bottle cage, bag, and last week new tires . I think it's a good amount of bike for the money. Probably lighter/faster than most entry level bikes anyway.
Thanks! It defiantly fits my needs.
finally got it out for a ride today. Verrrryyyy windy but I can tell this is going to be a fast bike. Seems more aerodynamic than the trek too, but could just be placebo effect. Anyway, I promised a better pic:
2013 Allez Sport.jpg
The photo doesn't do the blue any justice, but its my 2013 Specialized Allez Sport Compact...Its the 52cm size frame and has the Shimano Sora Double brake shifters vice the kind with the small thumb shifter like the previous models...Its a fun bike to ride on...Still getting comfortable with the cleats before I go off into the Urban Jungles of Honolulu and Waikiki...
Compsci, how tall are you and what size bike is that?
Just took her on her maiden voyage. Only 12 miles, but having not gone on any real rides for almost a month, getting in an accident and being sick for last week, it was a relatively hard 12 miles. Really looking forward to riding this bike more.
ALL CITY NATURE BOY
I got my first road bike. And probably my first good bike, a Trek 1.2. It's not a super fancy all carbon-fibre machine, but I'm really happy with it. I've put about 400km on it the first month and just today did a 30km trip on it. Not huge, but I'll be working my way up. I'm mainly taking it work, about 11km each way.
The steel Fuso has been sitting around without getting much attention for some months. I put the Centaur compact back on along with the Open Pros laced to Ultegra hubs. Dura-Ace 10 speed down tube shifters. Who says Shimano can't dump the cassette in one big shift?
