So, I figured that no bicycle forum would be complete without pictures of bikes! Post your photos here, no bike will be refused: Road TT Triathlon Cyclocross MTB BMX Shixie Fixie And anything else! Lovely bikes lovely, but everyday bikes interesting too. I won't post first, but I'm taking pictures right now.  1 I wanna see what bikes you're all riding!

I've got the same bike, though 105, I wondered what mods you'd made. I've swapped the wheels for RS80s

As it's now a sticky I thought I would add further to the thread.

Here is my infamous Allez which is now my winter / bad weather bike.

I'm going for a first year Junior place next year, don't know how likely I am to get in though.

Did you get to keep the bike?

** Insert picture of standard 2012 Specialized Allez Compact in Black and Grey here **

I know it's slightly boring, but I like it whilst i'm learning. Maybe there should be a "my next bike will be a....." thread?

Nowt wrong with an Allez Lob... Cracking bike, had mine for donkeys and still difficult to better.
You may have a newer, 'better' bike later but you will always look back and sometimes think 'why the hell did I get rid of my Allez' I'm sure there's a song title in the making there.

Yes from the 2011 model on they have same geometry as Tarmac.

Nothing wrong with the Allez which is why I posted a picture of my 2010 model here.

I nearly went for a Raleigh myself, but the Allez felt the most comfortable of the ones I tried in the shop.

I'm very happy with it, like the feel, seems responsive and a good all round road bike at my level. I can see why some people may find Specialized a little "boring" but can also see why they are such a popular bike. I will post a pic of mine when I get round to it, but would already consider getting another Spesh when it comes time to get another bike  3

Will be keeping the Allez as long as I can though  1

You have your bars dropped low!? That why them hands are suffering. Love your bike though

funny you should mention the bars, normally its the seat that gets the queries!

I was finding the position to be really comfy actually, until someone noticed the saddle and then it was a real annoyance!

i think the 23cc tyres @ 115psi could have been a contributing factor to tired hands, that and many consecutive 15hr days in the saddle!

but it is a great bike to ride, really enjoyed our time together and would thoroughly recommend - got a few disdainful comments about Raleighs to start off with, but as a bike maker they have got much better again!

*disclaimer - I am from Nottingham so I believe I am contractually obliged to say nice things about Raleigh
