Great bike! Is the white matte or gloss on that frame?
It's matte white and gloss black.
There's one benefit with matte white, the welds are much less obvious :lol:

Very sharp! Nice build. Interesting choice in pedals.
Casual mode right now, would be swapping to clipless soon
How do you protect a satin white bike? Do you wax it or use a special protectant?

That's the VHS Artist edtion inspired by the graphics of 80's and 9o's VHS tapes. my LBS has one and it is a great looking bike.
Where did you get that info. I think it would be cool if there was a place you could find out what was behind all of these colors!

Got it from Specialized, internally... there's not a lot of info about this model or the meet your match Allez. I think they had designers do some custom models that were gonna be used for Red Hook Crit series and then that series got cancelled and they had these designes they'd paid for but no real way to promote them, so they kind of just put them out.

I just spray all purpose bike cleaner and wipe clean that’s all. Seems pretty easy to clean this matt paint

I don't think so... the meet your match bike and the satin white bike are already out. The satin white retro bike is really nice in person.

I made some modification to my bike since last time i post it. So i keep it updated here.

Size 49, 120mm stem, Di2 mix of Ultegra RD and Dura-ace (9000) cable-brake shifter and derailleur.
Juin Tech F1 up front, TRP Spyre in the back (Juin Tech can only be used with 160mm rotor, i don't want to run 160mm in the back).


Drive side and non drive side

CVT04429.jpg
Handlebar and Stem:
Specialized Aerofly II 38cm, Specialized Venge stem -12 degree 120mm
I still go back and forth between Pro Vibe stem (140g, stiff) and Venge stem (210g, bloody overly stiff). I think i might just take the weight hit of Venge stem because i like how ultra stiff stem feels. And if i'm a real weight-weenies, Allez Sprint is not for me anyway. Stiffness over weight!

Change from Quarq Dzero to Power2max + Rotor crank, gaining extra weight, just because i like how it looks better than Quarq.

There was a post over on reddit of an Allez Sprint Disc (full bike build - Comp I assume?) with a 2020 colourway. I assume it's from the US. The person stated it's available to dealers, but not on the Specialized website as yet. It's....gorgeous. It's a deep metallic looking red with black logos.

Here's the link (I hope it's okay to link to reddit):

You guys done any climbing on your Allez Sprint discs? How's it feel in/out of the saddle? Can you compare it to anything?
