    Comments:

    I bought the bike in early September 2013 and have put a few hundred miles on it in the past month, most recently in the Tour de Scottsdale. It rides smoothly and even though it's aluminum, it's lighter and faster than my "vintage" carbon Allez Epic. I did swap out the cassette to give me better hill climbing. I highly recommend the Specialized Allez product line.

    Comments:

    I used the allez as a commuter. I love this bike. Although it doesn't have a carbon fork, it glides through the wind( sometimes). This is my first road bike after being on fixed gear for a while. The wheels are a bit on the heavy side but that can't be changed by getting a lighter wheel set. The drivetrain is quiet decent. Is not the smoothest shifts ever but it gets works. Over all this bike is great. I'm soon switching the drivetrain to full ultegra ice grey 6700 and mavic ksyrium elites!

      Was riding a mountain bike about 18 miles roundtrip to work 4 days a week. Decided to move up to a road and wow! What a huge difference. This bike is awesome--and the staff at the store really got me into what I needed. May very well upgrade later--but as a beginning road bike I am very happy. I did upgrade the pedals to speedplay chromoly clip ons. And am blown away by how good it is to ride this way. Got into a road bike--and at a price that makes me feel great. And from what I came from...this ride is nothing short of a revelation.

        I was the rear bike, when I started riding this Allez I was leading. This bike is fast I really enjoy riding it.The [...] tuneups are great,I tried to make adjustments and had to take it in to have it fixed,[...].The free sizing is great for a new rider.Also the free training classes are fun and helpful. Next year Ill trade up. Great people and great company.

        Comments:

        I was a little skeptical at first as of this year they did not include a carbon front fork. But once I rode this bike it is so smooth and glides like a dream corners very nicely and really no uncomfortable position while riding. I would recommend to anyone a plus design.
