I just thought I would post a few pictures of the bikes I currently have. This list changes somewhat frequently, though not as often as others.
Currently:
2019 S Works Epic - SOLD! Now time to shop for its replacement :beerchug:
2020 S Works Tarmac - upgraded from my 2019 frame set with the older parts. No real WW parts here.
3T Exploro LTD - winter beater
None of these are WW bikes, while I try to add lighter parts where applicable, since my WW sub 6kg Parlee build I haven't been too obsessed chasing grams.

Tarmac before:

Tarmac after:

3T - need some better pictures of it, but also need to ride it more. I have a set of 650b wheels too that I need to try out

I think you should get a new mechanic.

Not sure what you mean by “regular” Allez. It started life as a 2015 D’allusio Smart Weld Allez Comp. Those frames were offered in the S-Works, Race, Expert and Comp models. The DSW frames are all the same, the difference being an S-Works Tarmac fork and and lack of paint on the S-Works models. the Race, Expert, and Comp models all had non-Sworks and then were further differentiated by the groupset components that came on them. Further down the line were the Elite, Sport and base models... The Elite model had the DSW smart weld headtube, top tube and down tube, but it was a smaller downtube with a BSA threaded bottom bracket shell instead of the OSBB bottom bracket on the Race, Expert and Comp models. The Elite also had a standard headtube as opposed to the tapered headtube/headset on the higher models. The Elite also had a carbon fork with an alloy crown/steerer. The Sport had no smartweld tech, no internal cabling, same fork and head tube as the Elite. The base model was the same as above, but with an aluminum fork. Yes, my bike started life as a comp, I stripped the paint off, swapped in an SWorks Tarmac fork, DA9000 groupset... I’m not sure what your point is.

Thanks godzuki, I like having the option of doing something other than riding my road bike if I feel like it.
Thanks burglarboycie, it's my favorite color of the current 2020 offerings.

If I am a bigger guy, then so is he because we're basically the same build. I think both of you are basing this idea of me being a "bigger guy" on the photo that shows me pushing 50watts to the finish line in full diaphragm breathing mode. Look at even the skinniest pro riders in this situation and they look the same. Am I a climber, not by any means, but I'm not overweight. I'm actually in the best shape I've ever been in, in my life... at 17 years old, I'm fine with that.
