New bike in the Stable

First new bike since Last fall

Thanks to Steve Whitlatch I got a new ride. He saw it and alerted me right away and I got it!

Its a 88 or 89 Specialized Allez Epic carbon. Full Ultegra.. 10 out of 10 shape. NO flaws.

Nice! Always good to find a special bike. I would assume (I know the risk with this) that you mostly ride the 2011 Specialized Roubaix Elite. Do you ride the others much? I now use an app so I can log the miles I ride on a vintage bikes. But my collected bikes don't get many miles. I only have room to display two bikes.... and an agreement with my wife.
