I transitioned from a big box store road bike to this Allez and it felt very different in a positive way. I was able to increase my speed and go longer distances right off the bat. My increases weren't great but I improved. Over time, I think I can go twice as far I did with my old bike. Your legs will ultimately determine your performance. If you're out of shape, don't expect to perform well just because you upgraded bikes. I don't want to give the impression that this bike will make you a racer right off the bat. I improved off the bat because I rode on a low quality road bike from a big box store for a long time AND rode long distances. I got used to pedaling on inefficient gears so I pedaled a lot harder than I'm supposed to. Pedaling on the Allez was heck a lot easier than my old bike. I guess you can say that's my way of conditioning myself. Also, I wasn't wearing any bike clothing or cleats.
This is my first road bike. I love it. I ride the Katy Trail and pack the bike around on a bike rack for my car. I like the bike becuase of how fierce it looks. I also like how light and durable it feels when I am riding it. The price of the bike alone is great - Very happy with that. I think this bike is an excellent purchase for a beginner and I believe I will have it for a very long time.
