Love the evolution your Allez Pro has made. Looks great. I do love mine and have since I bought it brand new. Put a lot of miles on it and it is still the fastest bike in my group. And agree, silver and yellow decals was an odd choice. But great bike. Any more updates?
I'll see if I can find my photos of the original bars
Here is mine with some Soma bars.

I am a believer in having the bars in a position to support comfortable rides for as many hand positions as possible while still being able to use the brakes effectively.
IMHO your Ergos are too far down the bar. The ends should line up with the bottom of the flats. Doing that would angle the hoods more towards you improving hand comfort. Not a big deal because you should do a better job on the bar tape anyway!

Often I just rest my hands on the hoods without clasping them. Went over a speed bump without noticing it and my left hand slipped over the front of the hood causing the wheel to turn left..... Face plant! I don't do that anymore and like my hoods a little higher.
Bikes don't stand alone. They are two tired.

I've kept mine pretty much factory stock, just as it came from the dump:

You know it's going to be a good day when the stem and seatpost come right out.

(looking for a picture and not seeing it? Thank the Photobucket fiasco.PM me and I'll link it up.)
