The Allez is geared about the same as similar bikes for riding downhill.
Slovakian Champion was racing without the rainbow stripes for the first time in three years at the Down Under Classic in Adelaide
The Specialized Allez is a versatile entry-level bike with a great ride quality and the potential to be upgraded
A modern classic when it comes to alloy race frames but the aesthetics of the welds won't be to everyone's taste

This do-it-all road bike is suitable for centuries, commuting, or carrying light loads
