User259iroloboy said:Nice bike, I loved my Allez...Just a quick photo tip, when taking pics of your bike, make sure the chainring is facing the camera, the chain is on the big ring at the front and the small cog at the rear, that your valves are centralised either at the top or the bottom of the wheel, and that the crank arm is in line with the seat tube! All very anal I know, but we all get that way eventually

You can see some flex in it, so I think they do absorb some road buzz.
The 07 Allez is advertised with a carbon post but actually has a Alu post with a wrap of carbon , which I thought was a bit sharp of specialized.
I love the bike, I know for a lot of people an Allez is a fairly basic but anything more would be a bit much for commuting and probably wasted on me anyway.
