Tested: The Specialized Allez Sprint Returns
Although this proposition runs into my second gripe with the Allez Sprint, its price. At $3,000 for a complete bike with Shimano 105 components, the Allez Sprint is a solid $700 dollars more than a comparable Cannondale CAAD 13. This makes the prospect of adding a wheelset to that price tag a bit daunting
I went to a shop that sells Specialized to ask about an Allez Sprint Disc and they basically pulled up the Specialized website, went to the same page I've been to 100 times, clicked the color and size and saw there was no inventory and said they couldn't buy any and no place in the country has any, just like I could see on my phone. Basically do LBSes use the brand's websites like we could as a consumer?
Not upgrading any components until I reach my goal weight.
I too started on a Bianchi ViaNirone 7 with an older Sora groupset (it still had external shifting cables on the shifters). I rode that all the way up until I started racing, then I upgraded to my current Specialized Allez Sprint. I've bought upgrades as I feel the need, so far I've gotten better pedals, carbon bars, computer, etc. Of these, the bike computer is the best use of money.
Specialized Allez Sprint Review - Best Performance Aluminium Road Bike | BUMSONTHESADDLE
55kg (approx) OUR VERDICT We think that the Allez Sprint Comp is by far one of the best aluminum race bikes that you get for your money now.
Specialized Road bike question
Specialized just made more because most people that want a race bike are going to be spending more to get the SL7 or buy used. If you race you'd want a better groupset than Tiagra. The Roubaix is comfier for more people. Personally I'd get the Allez Sprint over the Tarmac SL6, but they're even harder to find.
Is this a good deal?
Nice, so that is an Allez Sprint, the geometry and aerodynamics on this frame are little more aggressive for racing, really well built bike, remember though, this is an aluminum frame with a carbon fork, not a full carbon bike. The Di2 is going to be absolutely killer, and makes it worth the price. Nice bike, I’d jump on it.
Gravel bike, but riding road. What would you do?
I’m surprised you can find an Allez Sprint for $1000. Those carry an odd premium on the used market. Depends on the specs, but if it’s anything less than your current set up just get a wheelset or just replace the tires.
Why did Sagan race an alloy Specialized Allez Sprint Disc road bike Down Under?
BORA-hansgrohe Specialized Allez Sprint Disc team builds. The Bora-Hansgrohe team bikes were set up pretty much just like their standard carbon race bikes. That means a full Shimano Dura-Ace R9170 Di2 groupset with disc brakes, Specialized-branded power meters on the Shimano cranks, K-Edge protection against dropped chains, Dura-Ace pedals & CeramicSpeed bearings
My sister is gifting me a Specialized Road Bike, can’t decide between the Diverge and Allez
I had an Allez sprint disc and liked it. If you’re looking at disc and want to keep your sunspeed I would get the Allez. At like 2k I felt like if I dinged it up some it wasn’t a big deal, since it wasn’t a 4k carbon bike.
Cervelo R3 vs CAAD12 vs Allen Sprint Comp
The Allez Sprint really lives up to the reputation as aggressive, race-y position. My neck and shoulders are often a bit sore after riding it. Great fun when you really want to drill it but I have a 2nd carbon Roubaix (endurance bike) for day to day riding. I'm happy that I have both.
