    1. 05-30-2012 11:02 PM #1
      its 770 without tax

      i like the geometry...the components are all 105 shimano..i heard they're real vanilla but also pretty good

      ive been looking on craiglist but cant find a 61cm bike

      is this brand new bike worth it?

      if you like it, it fits, and you will ride it, it's totally worth it. 105 is great stuff.

      If it fits, that is a good price.

      Hate to break it to you... judging by the levers.... it's not a 105. It's not a Tiagra. It's a Sora or 2300

      so, that means... 8-speed cassette

      the wheels look wrong, especially the front. the comp gets radial spaced front wheel

      a brand new Allez comp price... add a "1" in front of the 770.

      it looks like the base model Allez Compact

      Yup, most definitely Sora. That's what I have on mine.
