It's been quite a long while since my last post, bidding adieu to my old friend. This post is long belated, regarding my new ride. Yes, a new bike.
It took some time saving up the money, sourcing the parts and getting them all together. In the end it was all worth it though. A full black anodized frame deck out with red and whites to bring in some color. I present to you, the Specialized Allez, or Speccy as I call it adoringly.
It's the 2015 Specialized Allez E5 Smartweld frameset, with Shimano 105 11 speed (5800) and American Classic 420 Aero 3 wheelset. The whole build came up to about 8kg. I've been on a few rides with it already so far, and I can say it's a very very nice ride.
It's light, it's responsive, and it's good looking. What else can I ask for?
Shifting is close to effortless, as smooth as you can get for the 105.
All in all, I can say that this is a very amazing machine. Can't wait to ride further and faster.
