Finally got her built up. Not a weight weenie but I like how it rides. Very comparable to my S-Works Tarmac. This will mainly be my crit bike. Weighs 17.11 with my Garmin.

Agree with all.
Frame colours awesome, wheel & crank look great.
Stem & post need blacking out or swapping out!

Blacking out the stem and post would be cheaper :D

I've always liked the Specialized Allez Smartweld frames: it's one of the few high-end alloy frames nowadays as most manufacturers only invest in developing carbon frames, even at the lower end of their range.
When I first saw the 2014 paint scheme I though it wasn't as nice as the complete black color scheme of 2013 but when I look at your bike I have to change my mind.
As other WW's mentioned: I would prefer an all-black stem and seatpost.
But overall the bike looks georgeous!!

Great looking bike. Does Specialized now sell a Di2 specific frame or did you do the Di2 mods yourself?

The above is the multi key line/gloss black color. They still make the murder black version of the frame. 2 frame color options.

Wow, genuinely amazed that Specialized offer as cool a colour scheme as that - looks fantastic. The red and white accents on the seatpost and stem jar though, try removing them with photoshop first, bet it improves the looks and accentuates the frame.

Did you drill the frame for the internal routing of the Di2 cables?

Yes sir. Went down to my local Home Depot and bought me some new drill bits. Did a little bit of sanding to keep it smooth. :)
