Specialized Allez Elite coming my way

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

Specialized Allez Elite coming my way

Just like the title says, I will be getting an Allez Elite sometime soon. Best bike I could find for the money. It was either that or a Trek 1.2, but I felt better with the Specialized.

Thanks everyone! I can't wait to get riding again.
