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

Thanks everyone...it is aluminum. Bike shop weighed in in at 15 lbs. I'm not swearing to it though. I have last years Allez race in solid black but I tired of the stealth look quickly. The photo does this bike zero justice as in person the colors really standout. I like the fit of the ALLEZ and the welds are way better on the SWORKS. Worth the price difference? Probably not, but that's like allot of cycling stuff!!

The crazy multicolored s works allez is one of my favorite paint jobs right now. Yours is nice too, though.

Except for the rear bottle launchers, this is a nice hybrid.

I like my bottle launchers..

It's not really a hybird.. It's pretty much a Roubaix with a flat bar..

I don't expect the bike to get much love here for that reason but I love it! My 1st bike with the electronic shift and I'm sold.. This has Ui2 and not Di2 however..

Sweet bike. I'm amazed at how thin those seat stays are.

It seems to have a more sloped top tube and a taller head tube than a Roubaix.

Honestly, I have no clue as that was a guess on my part.. The frame is 10r carbon so I guess that's why I assumed Roubaix..

Would Specialized make a new frame for such a limited amount of bikes? I assume the frame was from a road bike version but again, I have no clue...

Love the bike and frame, but have never seen a quill stem so high and still be safe... how much of that thing is in the headtube? Hot when I close my eyes and imagine the stem lower that's not creepy is it?

It still has quite a bit in the head tube, not near the minimum markings. It's comfy now, but I think I could put it down another cm and still be comfy.

Are you talking about the mostly black with magenta on the fork and seat stays, and yellow S on the head tube? If we're talking about that colorway, agreed! Though it's "just" an E5 frame, not $ Works

I give [MENTION=99490]WHOOOSSHHH...[/MENTION] 's bike a hot. The colorway and subtle matching of components is great, and looking at the frame welds on the full-res photo...

Classic, very nice. Don't see too many orange frames and this one is super nice. Love the lugs. The gum walls are a great touch too.

Hot, except I'm not sold on the color of the cables. Just personal preference though.

I like the frame, but overall this just isn't working for me. Might be the tires, might be the wheels, it's hard to say.

Looks like my size. Gonna give it a "not" because of the tipped up handlebars and brake position.
