As far as I can tell, there won't be a sworks allez frame set.
Tarmac and venge sworks are pretty similar to last year. The roubaix got some nice updates, making it lighter and stiffer. According to specialized, the frame is sub 1000 grams.

Any word on the Shiv TT (not the goofy tri version)?

The shiv tt is in matte black with white highlights. Available only as a module (frame, crank, seatpost, fork, headset, and cockpit) for 5800.
There will be an allez e5 frame set. It will be in a super stealthed out anodized black and be about 20 grams heavier than the sworks frame. The paint on the sworks is apparently the main reason the weights are so close. The frameset will be 880 and apparently rides just like the sworks.

It's still going on, but I left. Nothing really blew me away (Tarmac or Venge), other than the EPS Venge. It was just a matter of paint. Lots of new paint options, but the same bike. Meh. The hot bike at Road Demo was the Roubaix SL4. In my opinion, for the 2nd year in a row, the Allez was under rated. Last year saw BB30 and beefed up fork. This year is a completely different frame.

Roubaix Expert w/ discs was awesome. As was the Sworks Crux w/ discs.

Got to play with D/A 9000......that stuff is legit.

Global launch was the first few days...then International dealers, and now US dealers. The pics that will be in mags and online have already been taken and should be showing up.

$880 USD? That sounds a good deal. I guess with Specialized PF BB?

Cool and thank you for the update. The Roubaix looks really good.
