See if the 2013 pro road shoes have changed and what colors? Price for the new tt clincher would be great.

Shoes look amazing, but I hate the stripe! How are they not making an all-white shoe like Boonen wears/wore? Bummer.

So the sworks allez. It's gonna be "between $6k and $7k" according to one of the designers. Weight (prob in a 56, though they didn't specify) should around 14.5 lbs. And they are only making 50 total, do if you're interested, I'd call your lbs and order one now. The kit is 2012 red with specialized new carbon clinchers and some nice finishing bits for the cockpit. The frame is different than the standard allez, using some new hydroforming and welding techniques.
I'll try to get a closer look at the battery placement for the Tarmac and venge. I do know that the limited edition venge eps has a "custom battery placement" below the down tube near the bb.
Might get to ride d-a 9000 mechanical today!

Looks like specialized is sticking with the external water bottle mount for di2 on the venge, Tarmac, and roubaix. Except on the limited venge eps as I mentioned above.

Maybe it makes more sense this year as the new Di2 will have the option for battery in the seat post. The current solution including the zip tie is anything but pretty. The Mclaren has the battery under the BB with a carbon housing.

Any changes to the S-works frames?
