Picked her up last night and still need to transfer some parts over and get it setup for my size. I just took some quick pics due to the excitement since it was so hard to find any info on them in the flesh. Size is 52 and can't wait to ride it!

Thanks, will do on the ride report. I'm coming off from last year's Allez Expert that i Di2'd. I'm pretty sure the Sworks seatpost is a special edition only thing and most likely the other sprints will come with the Venge Pro level carbon post but i could be wrong. Maybe someone else will chime in that has one of those models on hand to check.

Wow! super jealous.... That's a sick looking bike. As someone that has plenty of seat time on a 2015 Allez DSW Comp, I'm anxious to hear your reactions. I'm glad to see that they did end up doing the bottom bracket in red... the marketing bikes had that, but if you look at the model on the website, it shows a polished bottom bracket.

So I'll have to just be jealous...

I remember you posting that bike. If you don't mind sharing... where did you sell it? I've been looking for a good place to sell mine... other than ebay, who takes WAY too big of a cut...

Online bike swap group on Facebook seems to be pretty good... i sold a bunch of jerseys there and there seems to be people asking for DSW Allez frames all the time.

I actually haven't sold it yet and in the process of getting it cleaned up for pictures, wish me luck. It's been a tough year for bike/parts sale.

Regarding weight, it came in at 16lbs without pedals but for some reason feels much lighter than that. Here's her current state, no ride yet though :(

Looks good! I rode my silver/black version today for a quickie; shifting is excellent - pics posted on the 'Bike Pic Thread.'

final update: As of today I can say I'm 95% certain I'd have no need for a 'standard' 2X build - I've done my normal loops, rollers, hills and flats without the need for the 28 and 'bailout' 34 tooth cog, using the 50-tooth Q-Ring up front, and had a 'PR' on one hill segment. It's a damn good bike :thumbsup: Take Care All. I may sell my S3 and get another color combo using a 48-tooth upfront :D

Good to hear that you like it so much. I can't wait to get my grubby little paws on my X2. I stopped by the shop today to kill some time and check on the order and they were all raving about the one the unboxed and sold recently. Mine is supposed to be here Tuesday, so hopefully I will be able to share my own opinions soon.

What year is your S3? I'd be very interested in your perspective between the 2.

Did you see Justin Stanley wrecked his gold/red x2 in a race this weekend?

Yes, after riding it more and more, there seems to be something about this bike that makes it a winner. I have a 52T Q-ring that needs to be installed that will make it only better. Honestly, best damn bike i've swung a leg over and it happens to be aluminum, imagine that.

I'm doing better than on my 'dialed in' S3 - and I still need to get fitted on the Allez. Took a KOM today, second on another segment, and 5th on another.

Wow! I am super tempted to sell my 2015 DSW and get one of the 1x....
Out of curiosity, what year is your S3? One of the older ones or 2014+?

It's really awesome to hear how good these bikes are. I'm going to personally wait for a 2X as i like taking trips to the mountains when I can. But for my terrain i think a 1x would be more than adequate. Maybe i'll give in... who knows haha
