Sounds like a great build and I can't wait to see it. You getting a '13 or '14 frame? The '14 was changed and has some red ascents on the top tube.

Took it out for the maiden voyage today. 155kms of smooth riding. All I can say is this is a much better bike than the caad9 in every way I can think.
Notables:
Pro Falcon saddle is very comfortable.
The 6800 FD shifting is amazing, never before could I shift into the big Osy ring under load.
Much less road vibration vs caad9, bumps and jolts are not as severe.
I get this sensation that power is more efficient, we'll need more rides to see if it's true.

I plan on changing out the green bolts for red, blacking out the 'dale and get the soldiering gun out to take car of that wiring disaster.

Glad you are enjoying the bike! By all accounts the Allez is a great frame.

Just a few nitpicky points from me....cut the steerer as soon as your fit is dialed, PLEASE remove the saddle bag and get matching tires. Then take some more pics to post for us!

A compact frame with a large amount of seatpost sticking out is always going to be more forgiving than a traditional frame with less seatpost flex.

With the new wheels the bike is exactly 8kg. Other wheels will be 400gm off that. I took care of the cabling and SRM wires so it looks nice now.

I've converted over to riding tubs all the time now. The yellowjersey.com 3 for $50 deal is going to do me just fine this season. I plan on getting 3 more for Tue next set of wheels. They went on without too much trouble. Got them on very straight and round.



I had to toss the pro bottle cages, they were too much work to get a bottle into and went with the elites in matte black.

How do you like the spare tub+c02+lever in a sock tied on with a leather string @ 415gm?

Looks like a mean race bike! I think the spare tubular looks ok, but most of my riding buddies who use tubulars actually use a really light one, like a tufo or a track tubular that folds down really small so that it can fit right up under the seat. Sock is ok as long as you put a plastic bag between the tubular and the sock, else you will get lint stuck on your pre-glued base tape. Keep co2/ stuff in your back pocket.

How are you liking the quality of the ride of the yellowjersey tubs? what is the weight?

The yellowjersery.org tubs are actually quite nice. The avg. 295gm or all three and @ $20 each I couldn't be happier. They ride really well, not nearly as nice as a set of vittoria evo crono, but I don't notice any difference compared with the 320 tpi corsa cxII, and feel better than sprinters. After 200k of riding there are no cuts at all in the tread, seems like they will last. I'll report back once I've logged a few thousand km's. I did put stans in them because I am actually pretty scared about flatting them on the road. But I feel confident I can put on the spare easily enough.

After further riding of the yellowjersey tubs I can no longer recommend them. I went through 6 of them in 5 months. I tried very hard to get them on without hops but couldn't. In certain places the casing would rip under the tread, a bubble under the tread would form and cause a flat. When new and mounted well, they do ride well.

Nice, it looks all business.

I'd just paint the big chainring. It looks odd otherwise on a fairly black bike.

If I was on a Spec backed team, I'd be taking an Allez as much race frame over a Tarmac.

Such an underrated bike.

Updated a few items. Sold the wired SRM, and got a Garmin 510 and Stages Cycling Powermeter. Updated to the 2014 Osymeteric rings, downsized from the 56/44t to a more reasonable 52/38t for everyday riding.

It will be nice to be able to have power and swapping to a bigger ring for time trials.

Very cool! You and I have the exact same frame (like below), and I concur they are wonderful.
