First road build, I come from BMX racing but a string of injuries has me trying something I have always wanted to compete in. Last road bike was a graduation gift of a 2005 trek 1000 new off the showroom floor. This rides incredible!

I would like to upgrade to a carbon crank, carbon ultegra 6700 pedals and carbon bars but with a wedding coming up I still need to be reasonable. Thanks!

Hopefully, get new pictures in outdoors and also with the cassette that is now installed.

Great job for under 1k!!! Did you remove the specialized decals or am I blind, (if so it looks so much better without them)!

Great job... you're going to fall in love with this bike. I have one and have had dozens of high end carbon and this Allez is something magical.

The specialized sticker is on the top and bottom of downtube and it is a matte sheen specialized sticker, blends very well!

This is with some cheap junk wheels and skewers, with a 12-30 tiagra cassette. The 6700 cassette, Ti skewers and carbon clincher brought it down from 18.99lbs to 17.75.

Updated pic after my first crit in Lousiville, CO yesterday. Got some new bottle cages and carbon spacers. Felt really good going fast on this bike, corners like a champ.

I've just ordered the 2016 Allez SL frame which will be here next month. With regards to the BB shell, is it the narrow OSBB system like the carbon Tarmacs or is it a standard 68mm width?

Thomson post and I see that I need to adjust saddle angle!

This is a little update to my first road build. I am not a very good photographer, sorry. Hope to upgrade to some Ultegra/Dura Ace bits in the future. Thanks to everyone who posts as I have learned a lot on here.
