Getting my new bike Saturday!

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Getting my new bike Saturday!

I have test rode several bikes all around the same price range and settled on the Specailized Allez Sport. Now after waiting and thinking, and comparing I go saturday to pick it up! I'm so excited. I'm getting the black framed model with white bar tape.

Anyone have experince with Allez sports? Good bikes? It rode really smooth, and the tiagra shifters are a huge step up from sora (not to mention 105 vs sora....)

I'm sure it's a fine bike for the price. I recommend reading up on bike fit before you pick up your bike. Be honest with the shop about what you intend to do with the bike. That way they can set it up properly for you during the fitting process.
