This is my 3rd Specialized Allez to own (2nd Smartweld) and the name is a tribute to my very first bike, a Allez Sport which earned the name "Numb Nut" after my first sprint triathlon. Built with Ultegra 6800, Zipp bars, stem, and seatpost, and Bontrager Aeolus 5 D3 Clinchers. Will be adding a Stages power meter in the next few weeks. 17.65lbs/8kg

The ride quality of this bike is better than most carbon bikes I have ridden. It's really unbelievable.

Yes it is! I like it so far, it was easy to setup.

Loving the shapes of alloy frames more and more. The paint job is seriously amazing, little bit sick of the stealth bikes and this is really refreshing. Maybe the housing could be pink as well... But a nice build!

awesome looking bike man, I'm not sure you can get that factory colourway in the UK?

also, how do you internalise the top tube break cables like you have done?

sorry if it's a n00b question haha..

Very nice! I wanted that frame color on mine, but a local race team is using it.

If they make a pink anodized segmented housing you bet I'll add that! As far as internalizing the brake cable it comes that way on the Smartweld Allezs.

That is a really nice bike and paint scheme! :D

Since I have a 2012 Allez comp frame, which I like, I have to ask; How big is the difference between the Allez Sport and the smartweld frame? (thinking of buying one of these myself...)

Another nice bike, nice colour scheme comment from me as well. Unfortunately we don't get the colour scheme here in Australia otherwise I would be replacing my now ageing E5 with one the same as this.
