Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Madfibers will convince most on here that it's hot, and they are good looking wheels and yes, this bike would turn my head, but too much, imo.
This. Take the decals off the wheels and it might be hot. I'd find the other Allez hotter if it was in a better photo.


Similarly, the Fuji on the previous page has the makings of a hottie if I could see it properly.

I see the Madfibers as being Sunday group ride wheels. He's got another set of alu Novatec wheels for the "risky" crits.

Better detail pics.

Why does the Allez look photoshopped.......? Either way, it is a bit gaudy and thrown together.

Much better pic but still not there. Sorry for calling it a 1.2-1.5
Not.

Its all in the staging bro.
ie: wrong gear, mismatch bottles,etc.

I'd go with black cables to make them more stealth.

You're not kidding about the pic being terrible.

I like how its come together for you.
You mentioned this as being your 2nd bike so I'll give you a break.
I keep my Allez modest too.

I wouldn't kick either out of bed, but I'd probably keep the Daily Show on during the act.

thanks speshuled, this is a second (beater) bike for me to give my Madone a break every now and then and double as a race bike, so I will probably keep it modest. It's 17.02# with those 1750g wheels, Ultegra, and plastic bottle cages.

Thats not bad at all. I love madfiber wheels, but I think yours looks more appropriate than the decked out one. You did very well, especially for a beater.

One of these days I'm driving downtown and riding my bike all day around the city in hopes of spotting one of your rides in action.

$3,000 rims on an Allez? I hope that's an S-works Allez and not an entry level version.

Couldn't afford the MF's after the cost of buying the S-Works.
Have you seen the MSRP on that thing?
DAMN!!!

eh? Smartweld is $1,350, Expert is $2,400, and S-Works is $7,000 (!) for the Allez lineup.

*edit oh you must be talking about the frameset only.
