HI Guys

I ride the first generation of the 2x Allez Sprint. Since then there have been a few small changes like Di2 integration. removed ugly cables unter the BB (at least for disc version?).
I want to share my wishlist for a new Allez Sprint:
-smaller seat tube like on the new Venge. For weight reduction and more comfort!
-cable stop for rear rimbrake
-direct mount rim
-maybe 1 1/4" HT for even more stiffness
-i dont know if this is possible but cleaner weldings which dont scream: I AM AN ALUMINIUM BIKE

-last point is very personal, but i would like to have a shorter reach :)

What i really like are the steep ST and HT angles. and the stiffness of course!


What is your wishlist??

Specialized is not selling a complete rim-brake build for 2020. Framesets are available, but I wouldn't hold my breath for a next-generation rim-brake Allez DSW Sprint. At US$1900, the rim-brake Allez DSW Sprint was not a budget bike either, so I don't think Specialized feels that rim brakes are necessary to hit their price targets.

i hope this is not true. Allez Sprint Frame here is 1250eur without discount. I dont want a budget racer when i have to pay +500eur just for discs and ugly sti when I dont use Di2 :/

Do yourself a favour and buy another brand...Specialized are selling you what they want.

This is a great example of click bait.

Agree,
GUYS, if this kind of topic with click bait name instead of the proper name like "My personal wishlist to Specialized Allez Sprint update" showing up again ,
PLEASE do community a favour by not replying it, so that it fall out of first few pages quickly and fewer people has to waste their time clicking the topic again.
