    I get it now. Like...I'd love to have a custom-painted Pegoretti frame, they're quite beautiful...but I'd probably just mount it on the wall and never build it up or ride it...

    Very nice, WHOOOSSHHH. That's got some nice colors to it. Still pissed at Specialized, but I'll look past it for that bike.

    That's alum? Looks like carbon.

    Nice bike, Whoossh.

    No, you don't get it. Serious question, is that aluminum or carbon?

    Thanks everyone...it is aluminum. Bike shop weighed in in at 15 lbs. I'm not swearing to it though. I have last years Allez race in solid black but I tired of the stealth look quickly. The photo does this bike zero justice as in person the colors really standout. I like the fit of the ALLEZ and the welds are way better on the SWORKS. Worth the price difference? Probably not, but that's like allot of cycling stuff!!

    The crazy multicolored s works allez is one of my favorite paint jobs right now. Yours is nice too, though.

    Except for the rear bottle launchers, this is a nice hybrid.

    I like my bottle launchers..

    It's not really a hybird.. It's pretty much a Roubaix with a flat bar..

    I don't expect the bike to get much love here for that reason but I love it! My 1st bike with the electronic shift and I'm sold.. This has Ui2 and not Di2 however..

    Sweet bike. I'm amazed at how thin those seat stays are.

    It seems to have a more sloped top tube and a taller head tube than a Roubaix.

    Honestly, I have no clue as that was a guess on my part.. The frame is 10r carbon so I guess that's why I assumed Roubaix..

    Would Specialized make a new frame for such a limited amount of bikes? I assume the frame was from a road bike version but again, I have no clue...

    Good point Billy... I'm hoping that thin and fat work out!

    Love the bike and frame, but have never seen a quill stem so high and still be safe... how much of that thing is in the headtube? Hot when I close my eyes and imagine the stem lower that's not creepy is it?
