This little Specialized Allez Junior has been hanging on the wall at my LBS forever. In fact they had two of them. The reason? They wouldn't budge from the $779.00 retail price... until yesterday. It got a little heated, but I bought it for a fair but still expensive $650 total. I love this bike! Everything about it is enthusiast level, only in a size that fits my kid.

Initially I wasn't convinced that I should buy it because I figured my interest in it exceeded his. But we went to the Tour of California (last stage in Pasadena) which he loved, and he watched the majority of the TDF with me on my laptop! (We didn't have VS available).

Any 10 year old that can sit through complicated European bike racing must have more than a passing interest!

So here it is....one of the coolest kids bikes I've ever seen. :thumbsup:

That's great, I know when I was that age I would have loved to had a true road bike. I always had a bike so I can't complain but I was on something else pretending.
