Firstly, I am fully aware I have ignored/broken the OCP rules in a number of ways but was keen to post this build anyway.

Secondly, I am also aware that this is probably a marmite build where more people will hate it than like it.

As such, please ignore uncut steerer, height of seatpost, crank arm angle, background etc etc!

This is a Limited Edition Specialized Allez Race E5 Smartweld Frame with Anodized Gold Carbon SL4 Forks which was only available in the USA to bike shops who were able to get their hands on a limited number.

It consists of the following;

Specialized Allez Race E5 Smartweld Frame & SL4 Carbon Forks Size 56cm.
Sram Force 22 Groupset as I wanted full group to match without use of OSBB adaptor.
TRP R970SL Gold JPS Edition Magnesium Brakes.
S Works Carbon Seatpost.
S Works SL Stem.
Fizik Aliante Saddle.
Jagwire Elite Gold Gear & Brake Cables.
Fulcrum Racing 3.5 Wheels Destickered rims and hubs.
Continental GP4000s Clinchers.
Elite Gold Carbon Bottle Cages.
Rapha TDF Bottles.
Planet X Ti/Gold/Carbon QR's.

Yet to finish completely and will post pics when completed following the OCP rules.
