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.
the only problem is the price $7000 for an aluminum race bike! Whoa...
Specialized makes great bikes, I'm thinking this will be on the top of the list this year, but we will have to wait until I've reviewed all entry level bikes @TeamWaffles
If I had to choose again I would probably have grabbed this as my first bike. Great looking bike!
