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

    I'm ashamed to admit I had this very same first thought....

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

    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.

    Its closer to $10K in Canada.
    I'll take the CAAD10 black inc for $3200, with DI2.
    Hell I'd take a look @ the Tarmac, or Venge @ $10K.

    Edit:
    I don't think these welds look all that smart.

    Perhaps frames vs complete bike prices?

    Yep.
    I didn't even know it was offered as a frameset.
    I was under the impression the S-Works was an extremely limited edition. Only a 100 made or released I. US (something like that).

    The Madfibers make it look too busy. There are very few bikes they actually look good on.

    Only thing I would change is the orange tires. I dig the orange on the frame, but not on the tires.

    I say hot and I dig the orange tires.

    -1 for the saddle bag
    -1 for the tire labels not lining up with the valve stems

    I like orange.

    Now showing over in cyclocross-ville, my new Crockett.

    Please don't call them "brifters", that just sounds stupid. Really.

    Hot!
    Love the colors, & the internal routing.

    Since this is the Hot or Not thread we have to "nit pick"...
    Cable kit doesn't match, maybe go yellow or pink.
    White hoods don't work for me.
    Saddle doesn't match the bar tape.
    Red bits seem out of place.
