The geometry of the Roubaix is a bit more relaxed than the Allez, which is closer to the Tarmac. That's the first thing. The Allez is a great bike and very well regarded, but so is the Roubaix. I do own a 2011 Roubaix SL2, originally with 5700. It's a very comfortable bike. If you're looking for something a bit different, the price is good, the bike is in good condition, why not go for it.
