I'm seeing a few 2000's here, so I guess they are edging towards vintage. My beloved steel Bianchi got killed by a car in 2002, and I needed a bike for an upcoming ride, so I grabbed this 2002 Specialized Allez for $399 on closeout at Performance. At first I hated the aluminum frame. After a change to carbon fork, the ride was better. It was my transition bike from vintage to modern, I guess. My first bike with brifters, 8 speed Sora triple. I have older bikes, and newer ones. This is my tweener I guess. I've tried to sell it a few times, but no deal, so it's my backup bike, my bank or post office run bike, and gets out on occasional group rides. I'm OK without selling it, but I could use more garage space.

On a run to the little sidewalk library.
