Well after riding my 2012 Allez since the end of August last year and now that I'm able to start getting out and about again I've decided that as a result of a planned shift change to Friday - Mondays to start riding to work on the Saturday and Sundays (roads are very quiet at 5am those days).

As a result I've went and ordered a new Specialized Tarmac Sport from Leslie Bike Shop my local dealer!

I went in to the shop to buy some Fulcrum Racing Quattro's as an upgrade for the Allez and ended up trading that in and buying the Tarmac Sport instead

So a little lighter, Shimano 105 20 speed and a full carbon frame :D, I may just bite it and upgrade the cassette, brakes and chain to 105 from the off but otherwise I can't fault it. I can't wait!

Should get it in the next couple of weeks :D

I went with Carbon as we are of course going to get a glorious Summer with a drought and heat wave from March until October........
