Hot r Not

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

Hot, but remove the caps on your valves. You will save, like, 2 grams or so.

One person's too expensive bike, is another person's rain bike. I know people that race that time frame, locally, so they aren't scared of getting it scratched..

I think the Allez is hot, and I'd leave the wheel decals.
