There also two other options below the Elite: Your mountain bike size is: Tell us how you felt about the ride quality. Place a pencil on top of your head and holding it parallel to the floor make a little mark on the wall.
I usually ride: Rate the bike overall for performance: Top 6. I'm facing a similar dilemma to you with a frame I'm thinking of buying. The Boardman has more aggressive geometry, sitting somewhere between this 2018 Allez and the 2017 model, but this newer Specialized feels faster both in terms of speed and handling.

Specialized 2018. Would you change the tyres? Not sure if my reach is unusually long or short but I don't get too many odd looks and it's the most comfy long-distance bike I have. Any advice from you lots would be very helpful.
Not as aggressively sporty as previous version, but you can't have everything Forget anything you may already know about the Specialized Allez, one of the most popular bikes for those new to riding or moving their way up the ladder, because for 2018 everything has changed, and I mean everything.

A slightly dead feel to the tyres, but they are good at keeping punctures at bay. Cheers Jamie. Why are you even reading this thread Reddraggon?
Please Join Us it's free. I ride a 54 frame allez. Based on your comments, the online fitting thanks HLaB and also the attempt I had today on my friends road bike he is as taller as me, same inside leg, and his bike is 57 cm I am getting the 58cm. I must admit I do prefer the old one, as it better suits my aggressive style of riding, but the way the 2018 model handles does make for a much more suitable bike in varying conditions, and quite possibly quicker too if you take every ride into account.
Now thinking I'll chop the rear guard either side of the brake calliper and use two separate brackets for each half, to mount it higher than calliper allows. I too felt a bit streched out but soon got used to it and now feels very comfortable. I like bikes...Specialized Allez Elite. 2019 - Quick Look
