Congrats on the purchase. As I have mentioned on here before, a friend of mine has the Secteur Elite, which is the same type of bike but in alu not carbon afaik. He sings it's praises constantly.

In fact when my father first mentioned replacing his TdF I suggested the bottom end of the Secteur range but he went for the Allez as he didn't want a triple. I still think he should have gone for the Secteur but that's another story!

I had never been a Spesh fan since my early mtbing days of the mid-80's as they were 'too popular'. With age comes wisdom and I have learnt that there is a reason why they are popular and being very good bikes is that reason.

Hence why my Allez is now my pride and joy.

When do you get your new steed?

In a few days, I'm not in a tearing hurry.
I am excited though
