Built up over the winter after my trusty Allez cracked at the chainstay. Then broke my wrist before I got a chance to ride it...until last weekend!

7kg built up, very fast compared to my old allez and climbs very nicely :)

    Thanks!

    Frame: Dedecciai Scuro RS XL
    Brakes, mechs, shifters, pedals: Ultegra 6600
    Cassette: Ultegra 6700 12-23
    Bars: Deda RHM01
    Stem: Deda Zero1
    Wheels: Easton EA50
    Saddle: Spesh Toupe
    Crankset: Shimano FC-R700 compact
    Cages: Elite Moro d’elite
    And a little red ferrule / cap end Jagwire bling...

    Most parts came from the Allez, with a couple of bits from members on here and ebay.

    Awesomely, Specialized came good on their lifetime warranty while I was building this up and replaced my bust 2006 Allez frame with a shiny new 2013 frame, that's now built up with Tiagra and makes a fine winter bike :)

    My trusty Allez cracked at the chainstay too, i got a nice new frame under the warranty as well, the Comp instead of my old Sport (better tubes apparently). :D

    In hindsight I should of copied you, told the wife it was broken and bought a new bike then replaced it under warranty..then I would have been the proud owner of 2 bikes too :cry:

    It's what I had left over from the (heavily upgraded!) allez - I didn't really have the funds to upgrade to 6700, and tbh I'm quite happy with the 6600.
