I need to get to the bike shop today before they close to get my order in for an Allez Sprint Comp. they can get two colors in my size. Orange/yellow fade or brushed silver. What do y'all think? Major first world problems.

Buy one of the Sprint DSW frameset and put it together yourself. I have the Gold/Red 2016 model that I put together myself. Great bike!

I can barely pump up my tires. But yea I'm disappointed that there isn't an Ultegra version. For a bike that's marketed as the ultimate crit bike you'd think they'd have an Ultegra version.

Not sure...

When I read the above comment I understood it to mean that Ultegra is not exactly a WW first choice.

...could be wrong

:lol: Neither color makes you go faster, so you've come to the wrong place. What about trying out a color consultation/coordination/advice/therapy forum?

You are asking for someone's opinion to suggest a color of your new bike and stating that is major first world problem?! If you can't make such a simple decision, have you thought about asking your family members, friends or riding buddies? No offense but it's utterly ridiculous. Might as well flip a coin.

This forum is degrading on daily basis with spam.

And yet, the WW answer is blindingly obvious: anodised is lighter. What a dumbass question! I know I shouldn't go down to the level of the OP who started calling names.

Satin brush looks the best to me. The fade looks a bit heavy-handed IMO.

And you guys getting sad about someone asking a question - just don't read it if it gets your blood pressure up.

I hate how they show you the colors yet you can only order a subset of them.

I like the Orange Yellow Fade.
