In theory, the Allez Sprint shouldn't climb as good as a Tarmac.... the geomety changes made to the Allez Sprint make it more appropriate for a crit bike, but the geometry changes are subtle and really don't hinder the climbing aspect much. Most people wouldn't notice or report any difference.

Hmm interesting. Price on the builds are excellent too if the bike is as fun as everyone's saying. Looking for something colourful and fun, but it has to climb nicely too. We just don't have any of the good colours in full build options at the moment in the UK :x

This whole "climbs differently" is bullshit. It climbs fine and will go up as fast as you push it and as light as you build it.

It’s not about speed it’s about feel. Some bikes just feel nicer to climb on than others.

Seems to me that a really stiff bike is what you need to get up a hill the best and the BB on the Allez disc should be plenty stiff. My Aeroad is kinda heavy, but really stiff and feels like a rocket going hard up hills.

@hexsense how did you mount the di2 battery and how is the cable routing for the rear derailleur working? Can I get a photo?

The seatpost is from a Venge. There’s a seatpost battery holder available. I believe there’s a port in the chainstay for the rear derailleur cable a little forward from the derailleur

The 2020 color just kill me.

How much can i expect it to weight for a 52cm frame with full Red eTap AXS and 1500g wheels?

Seeing RioChang build is it realistic to expect around 7.3kg? My set up will have a lighter cockpit. I think Red AXS might be heavier than the 11 Speed Red eTap.

Are there mudguard eyelets on the sprint disc frame? I want to build a cool winter / commuter bike and I really like this frame.

I live in Scotland mate so that’s not possible!! Ha ha :lol: It’s stunning and understated. When I clocked up at the club run it got all the attention. Really dark pearlescent grey with the maroon fork. I’ve owned some top end frames and this is by far the nicest looking. You won’t be disappointed.

Love your build. I think I saw earlier you'd switched form the rim brake version to the diac.? I have a Sagan edition Rim brake that I love but been toying with getting a disc frameset. How does the disc version compare ride wise? Also the geometry is a bit taller, is that noticeable? Cheers
