A couple of weeks ago I did a blog posting on the Specialized Allez Comp Smartweld and that same week Mr. Tom Lonzi of Tom's Pro Bike fame was in California at Specialized learning about upcoming products and all sorts of other interesting tidbits.  He also got to ride some bikes and he grabbed the Specialized Allez Comp Smartweld and we chatted about it last weekend some.

As most of you that read this blog know or would understand, Tom has his pick from any number of top end frames and he was even offered the chance to ride a Tarmac, Venge, or Roubaix but he picked the Allez and he was very impressed with the overall performance of the bike.

Here is some more information on the Smartweld Technology: 
The Allez Comp Smartweld features an incredible E5 aluminum frame with Smartweld technology, a full monocoque Tarmac carbon fork, and a Shimano Tiagra drivetrain for a light, stiff and fast bike.

  • Race-inspired, smooth-welded, fully-manipulated E5 Premium Aluminum frame with Smartweld technology and tapered headtube is light and fast
  • Tarmac Comp full monocoque FACT carbon fork with tapered steerer is super light with great torsional rigidity for high-speed handling
  • AXIS 1.0 wheelset is significantly lighter than comparable-level wheelsets; these tough wheels roll smooth and fast
  • FSA Gossamer BB30 alloy crankset with mid-compact gearing is stiff and light for efficiency over any terrain
  • Shimano Tiagra shifters with STI technology for quick, crisp shifting whenever you need
  • Supportive Body Geometry Riva Road Gel saddle is the perfect combination of comfort and efficiency
With a MSRP of $1,350 this is a great price point for an entry level road machine that can be raced or ridden long distance with comfort and speed mixed in!

If you are looking for a great entry level price point bike you cannot go wrong with the Allez Comp Smartwed.  Stop by the shop for more information!
