Where are you located?

I have all my work carried out at enigma paintworks.

He’s done two frames for me know both of them being better than ever expected.
In the States, new York City. I see that Enigma is in England, so I guess I will have to keep looking.
If you're in NYC and looking for custom paint... you should contact Ron Jones. He's in Connecticut. He's a designer that works for Specialized and has done all of the special edition schemes for race winning bikes, etc. He does custom jobs out of his place in Connecticut. His instagram is NotEnoughSwedes

Hi just a newbie looking for some advice. Managed to pick up a 2021 Allez base E5 and looking at wheels as a first upgrade. I have these options in mind for now:

https://www.huntbikewheels.cc/products/ ... eep-22wide

https://www.winspace.cc/lun-road-60mm-r ... elset.html

https://labicicletta.com/collections/wh ... a-wheelset

Sorry if this is the wrong thread, I figured this is the first step and the sprint disc will be the final evolution.

Lovely looking bike, but please sort the skewers out and remove the sticker from the crank arm! :)

Anyone know the partnumber for the headset on an Allez Sprint? Is it S192500001 or do we have any non Specialized alternatives? :)

hi... from what i found out, the headset is quite unique...so no alternative
and there is actually for the MY19-20 edition ... S192500002 ... not sure if it differs much from -0001 edition

How the hell do you re-cable the shifters on this bike?? I bought some new handlebars with integrated routing, so I need to take the cables out of the frame and rethread them. I've done the brakes, but I can't for the live of me work out to get the gear cables back through the frame after I've taken them out! The rear brake was fairly simple because it was one long outer, but the gears go to inner only once inside the frame. I bought a piece of plastic tubing I though I could use as a guide, but the front derailleur cable is not long enough to be able to thread it on!

Never mind. I figured out a way to do it. I slid the tubing on as far as it I could get it at the bottom, they just pulled the inner from the other end, which brought the tubing along with it, until the tubing was all the way through the frame.
