      I have had this bike for about 2 months. Great bike and rides very nice. The frame geometry is very nice. The stock handlebar stem was a bit too short and angled downward a bit too much. This issue was remedied easily by the sales person swapping out the stem for something longer and angled upward. The bike is very light and shifts on a dime. It would have been nice to have better pedals for the price of the bike. I ended up changing them out to some red Look pedals..Excellent bike for anyone.

        Bought this bike about a year ago. So far, nothing has gone wrong with the parts/components. I made the right choice given its an entry level bike. No issues whatsoever with the shifters & brakes; as stock parts, they are true to their workmanship. The bike itself, for some reason, is fast. It takes off pretty fast from a stop and downhill ride is even faster/better. Most parts can be upgraded but for this bike; it seems like the only ones that I can upgrade for now are the wheels and tires (already upgraded). Everything else seems to work well with the bike. Good choice - no regrets.

          I ride mostly weekends and whenever I can during the week. Each ride 20+ miles a day. I could easily ride this bike 50 miles and not think twice to keep on going. It is really a comfortable bike to ride. Very light, quick acceleration and exceptional handling and steering. I am amazed at how well the bike rolls up hills. 10-12 MPH on a 15 % grade with no problem. It flies up hills !! And just wait until you go down them !! This is my first road bike so I can't compare it to another, but I couldn't have picked a better one for my first road bike in my opinion. The seat is hard on the butt at first, but I must be getting used to it because as time goes on it doesn't bother me as much. The brakes probably could be a little better however. They won't stop you on a dime per say, but they do the job. I have had the bike two weeks now and every time I ride there has been a strong headwind. The bike performs well even in windy conditions. I have absolutely no regrets buying this bike. I am confident you won't neither. Hope to see you out there on your new Specialized Allez !!

            I got this bike about 3 months ago, and i am blown away from it. it was my first road bike and its sturdy as a rock, and very efficent. In not a super competetive rider in the sense of i do some sprint triatalons and ride alot on varying distances(20-40 miles) on sundays, and try to get out as much as possible during the week but its kinda hard because im 13(: bottom line is i love this bike i dfinatly recomend it and cant wait to start competeing in different things with it!
