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
I feel like the disc version is a bit stiffer, but I'm not able to provide anything beyond opinions.
I use this bike for <3 hour fast rides, and I have an S-Works Roubaix for anything where I think comfort might be preferred over speed.
I haven't noticed the slightly different geometry. I sometimes wish I would have gotten the 52, but that was the same with my rim brake bike too.

So just picked up a 2020 Sagan Overexposed and planning to put Ultegra DI2. I noticed the two ports under the bottom bracket for the brake line and shift cable - is there any grommet that come with the frame? Especially for the the mechanical cable port since I’m using DI2. I didn’t see any that came with the frame.

Does the frame come with any BB bearing dust cover?

It should come with the praxis snap rings and bearings. No dust cover as far as I know.

@NoMutze - Nice catch! Here's a topcap you need to get for that frame:

I’m hoping to get sizing advice on the Allez Sprint disc. I may have the chance to get a discounted size 52 frame. I’m approx 167cm/5’ 6” tall and inseam is 77cm/30”. I currently ride a Defy (size Small) using a shortish stem, either 80 or 90mm.

The reach is slightly longer on a 52 sprint, but the top tube length is almost the same. Stack is much lower though, almost 3cm.

A 49 seems to low at the front and I think the 54 would be too long and Standover height may be too tall. Has anyone else with a similar height and inseam gone with the 52?

I had to go down to a 49 with a 100mm stem because the reach was too long on the Allez Sprint. I ride a Wilier Cento10Air in a small as well with a 90mm stem and my fitter said the Allez Sprint in 52 would be too big. Also the amount of seatpost exposed wouldn’t be a lot less with the 52 vs a 49.

Thanks for this. That’s interesting because I had a look at the geometry on the Willier and the reach and stack look roughly the same as the Sprint in a 52?

I’m not sure I could deal with the drop on a 49. The stack difference between a Small Defy and 49 is almost 4cm

Don't adjust your position according to frame stack.
Adjust the set-up to fit your position instead.

Does the old bike have -17 degree stem? If so change to +6 degree stem bring it up by nearly 4cm with no spacer changed. But positive angle stem look a little wonky though. I'm 169cm and use 49. I'd happily use 52 too with steeper stem angle. On 49, I use -10 stem, if I use 52, I'd just use -17 degree stem. I wouldn't even change stem length because the reach difference between 49 and 52 is only 5mm.

Here are quick list of bar height related to stem angle (length=100mm)
Assuming -17 degree is the reference point:
-12 degree is 9mm taller
-10 degree is 12mm taller
-6 degree is 19mm taller (and 1mm shorter reach)
0 degree is 29mm taller (and 4mm shorter reach)
+6 degree is 39mm taller (and 8mm shorter reach)
