Review: I have personally hear the Specialized Allez Sport get more praise than any other <$1000 entry level road bike. Seriously, everyone who gets one doesn't want to let it go, even if they get a nicer ride. Although the components are in the middle of the pack for these bikes, people seem to really love this bike.
It's got a semi-aggresive frame type, decent drivetrain, and a pretty beautiful frame for this price range. Be on a look out for the Allez on the top of this year's list.
