Spesh Allez 2010 - Winter bike :)

Postby badly_dubbed » Sat Sep 18, 2010 23:41 pm

well yesterday saw me finally give in to my urge to buy a road machine and not wanting to spend silly amounts on a first bike...i bought the Allez based on reviews..

so far im loving it! WAY different to my MTB's so fast and smooth!

STD Allez atm, but need to get a set of spds asap!!

So due to the purchase of a new summer bike I've relegated the Allez to winter bike,

Kitted her out with crud roadracer mk2 (great guards!!) and she looks manky! Must wash her soon lol

Are you still running the original tyres?

If so, then it's a good thing that you've got some spare tubes.

That said, I am the very happy owner of a 2009 Allez. Seriously good bike for the money, once I'd changed the tyres and pedals.

Tyres seem fine so far :) I have a set of Mondo pro that I got for free so will try them out later if need be though never heard of them myself think they came off a Tarmac

I got myself an Allez Elite over the summer as my first proper roady. Cracking bike, so quick compared to my MTB and suprisingly comfy- did my first 100km recently and it was brilliant. Need to get myself some mudgaurds for the winter crud mind!

Only bike I've not sold and it's the cheapest lol

I'd cry if it went to be honest...it's been brilliant :)

It's a fair bit lighter now that standard of course, almost as light as my venge which is 17lb reportedly...

Can't beat the road! I'm setting off on Tuesday on the venge for 4x 100milers back to back :)

Defo wouldn't fancy it on a mtb!!

eBay or even the classifieds on here are your friend!

My 2011 Standard Allez weighed in at just over 10kg with SPDs, bottle cage & lights.

Like the OP - very happy with it - changed the tyres after 1k miles (3 punctures 3 rides in a row) , new chain & cassette after 2k miles and just upgraded the wheels as the freehub was grumbling and got a decent price on new wheelset.
The next upgrade will cost more than the bike is worth as it'll be complete new groupset - so may be cheaper to buy a new bike!
Best moment must be when the group told me to slow down going up a "hill" ... so I don't think its the bike holding me back ... :)

Winter bike? If I had one it would be my absolute best summer bike!

Although not half as nice as your Venge (which is my favorite bike on here), it still looks good!

Road - Dolan Preffisio
MTB - On-One Inbred

I have no idea what's going on here.
